Dental crowns are small, cap-like structures that are custom-made to fit over the top visible biting surface of teeth. They can be crafted from a variety of materials, although today, many patients opt for natural-looking ones, like Emax and zirconia. Dr. Hunt also offers durable gold crowns as well. We typically recommend this treatment for patients who have undergone root canal treatment, have a large filling in a tooth, or have an otherwise misshapen or damaged tooth.
Cavities are among the most common oral health problems in the world, affecting most people at some point in their lives. Fortunately, there is a cost-effective, fast, and biocompatible treatment for decay, called tooth-colored fillings. Using a putty-like material called composite resin, we can fill and seal off a tooth affected by a cavity, preventing an infection from developing down the road. The material is natural-looking, so most patients are not even able to distinguish which of their teeth has been treated!
