Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings allow Dr. Perez to repair a minor cavity quickly and comfortably without altering the appearance of the tooth in the process. Instead of dark gray amalgam, tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin that he can match to your enamel. When the restoration is in place, only you and Dr. Perez will know where it is, because for your friends and coworkers, they won’t be able to notice it at all!
When a tooth is extensively damaged and on the brink of being extracted, a dental crown can be used to save it. A tooth-shaped cap is placed over the top of broken or decayed enamel, and this protects the tooth while also bringing back its appearance, strength, and function. Dr. Perez can provide durable metal crowns that are well-suited for the back teeth as well as natural-looking all-porcelain crowns for the front teeth that can be seen in the smile.
