With your routine oral care at home and excellent preventive dentistry, you and Dr. King do a lot to maintain the health and beauty of your smile. However, at some point, almost everyone needs some type of restorative dentistry to repair, rebuild, or replace a tooth. At Summer Creek Dentistry, we have all of the restorative treatments you need to once again have a smile that is structurally sound, functional, and attractive. Dr. King and her team might not only improve your smile and oral health, but they also stand a good chance of improving your quality of life with restorative dentistry in Fort Worth, TX.
Gone are the days when having a filling meant having a dark spot in your smile. Nowadays, dentists like Dr. King use tooth-colored fillings. Made of composite resin material, these fillings not only match the color of the remaining tooth structure, but they also add strength by bonding directly to your tooth. Plus, composite resin contains no metal, which means that you won’t have to worry about the filling reacting to extreme temperatures.
Dental crowns or caps have long been a dentistry standard for restoring a tooth that is severely damaged by decay or structural injury. This restoration is placed on top of the remaining tooth and allows you to regain its use. Dr. King uses porcelain, a material that is strong and natural looking, to construct the visible portion of the tooth. That way, no one other than you and Dr. King will be able to tell that you ever had damage to begin with.
