Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body. It’s even stronger than bone! However, your teeth can still fall victim to damage over the years, whether that be in the form of decay, infection, or injury. At South Arlington Smiles, we offer seamless smile repair through our durable, lifelike restorative options. Whether you have one little cavity or several broken teeth, our team is ready to help. Contact us to schedule an appointment so we can help your smile look like new again!
Rather than repairing a small cavity with a noticeable chunk of metal, we’ll fill it with a putty-like substance called composite resin. This material can not only be shaded to match the unique color of your enamel, but it also forges a direct bond with your tooth, creating a stronger and more reliable solution. What’s more, these fillings do not cause temperature sensitivity like metal ones do!
If a tooth has been severely decayed or otherwise damaged, it often doesn’t need to be extracted. Instead, we can preserve the remaining enamel with a dental crown. These tooth-shaped caps are personalized to look, feel, and function just like the tooth they’re covering. They also protect a tooth from sustaining further damage, allowing you to keep your natural smile intact for years to come.
Traditionally, getting a dental crown would take two appointments spaced a few weeks apart. Using advanced technology, though, we have streamlined the process down to just one visit. Now, we can scan your tooth, design your crown digitally, and place it atop your tooth, all in the span of a single appointment. In most cases, our one-visit crowns are just as natural-looking and long-lasting as those made in an offsite dental lab.
