Damaged and decayed teeth are common problems that we treat at Roman Dental. All of our dental restorations are custom-crafted to not only provide unmatched support and protection from additional damage but to blend in perfectly with your surrounding teeth. That way, no onlookers will be able to tell which of your teeth have been repaired. The materials we use for restorative dentistry in our Houston, TX dental office are also biocompatible, meaning they’re able to comfortably sit atop or within your tooth with minimal chances of causing irritation, discoloration, and sensitivity.
In the past, dentists would place amalgam fillings that were made from a combination of metals, including mercury and silver, to treat cavities. These materials were known to cause problems like gum and tooth discoloration and severe dental sensitivity. Today, we use a tooth-colored material called composite resin to fill cavities. It is able to chemically fuse with enamel, minimizing the need to alter teeth in order to place the filling and seamlessly incorporating with the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are placed over the biting surface of teeth to help strengthen or protect them. They can be made from a variety of durable and aesthetically-pleasing materials, including gold, porcelain, Emax, zirconia, and porcelain fused to metal. Typically, we use dental crowns to help support a tooth that has a large filling, protect treated teeth, or cover a misshapen or worn-down tooth.
