Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Fillings and crowns can be done with a variety of materials. Our Santa Rosa, CA dentist and her staff will work with you to select the material that is right for you and your situation.
We prefer tooth-colored composite fillings for cavities and bonding for the best cosmetic results as well as a healthier, stronger tooth. This material is custom-blended to match the color of your natural teeth so that nobody will ever know the difference. Composite fillings also allow us to leave more of your healthy tooth intact, which reduces the risk of cracking or additional decay in the future.
For crowns, we offer various metals including stainless steel and gold, as well as acrylic and ceramic crowns. For the best aesthetics, we do recommend all-ceramic crowns, which look completely realistic so you can keep your dental work between you and Dr. Delwiche! If you are concerned about the strength of all-ceramic crowns, we also offer porcelain-over-metal crowns, giving you both strength and cosmetic advantages all in one.
Our office will be happy to work with you and your insurance company to choose the crown option that is right for you. Call today to schedule a consultation!
