From fillings to crowns to veneers, we at McLeanSmiles are pleased to make cosmetic restorations readily available for you. It’s important to keep your teeth strong, healthy, and intact, but there’s no reason that you can’t do that while also enjoying the advantages of tooth-colored, aesthetically pleasing options.
No longer are metal restorations the only option out there. Tooth-colored materials include new and improved composite resins, ceramic, and porcelain. The choice of which material is most suitable will depend partially on the type of restoration you are getting, and also on your preferences. Ceramic and porcelain last longer than composite resins, but also cost more. Our 06905 cosmetic dentist will help you to make the most appropriate selections. Are tooth-colored restorations a good idea for back teeth? Sometimes. For example, crowns can be made with porcelain baked to a metal substrate, which is ideal for both practical and aesthetic benefits. It’s also true that some of our valued patients are allergic to metal and that will of course play into the process of making a choice. In addition to fillings and crowns, our 06905 cosmetic dentist also makes veneers available. They are usually fashioned from porcelain. They perform many of the same functions as crowns do, but instead of being fitted over the tooth, they are fitted in front of the tooth, thereby hiding imperfections and flaws that may make you feel self-conscious.
In a perfect world, you would never need a restoration at all because your teeth would remain intact and looking their best for life. We all know that can’t be counted on, though. There are simply too many factors that could get in the way. So it’s good to know that our 06905 cosmetic dentist have the restorations that will serve you well in the long run.
