Why Choose Lauri Barge, DDS for Restorative Dentistry?
- Durable Zirconia Crowns Available
Dental crowns are customized, cap-like structures that are designed to fit over the biting surface of the teeth that lies above the gum line. Typically, we utilize these restorations to protect and strengthen teeth that have been treated with a root canal, those that have suffered from extensive decay, and ones that are broken, fractured, or severely misshapen. They serve both cosmetic and functional purposes because they allow patients to preserve their natural tooth, all while making it appear virtually indistinguishable from surrounding teeth. We use porcelain, zirconia, and Emax (ceramic) to craft durable and exquisite crowns.
Cavities are a common occurrence, sometimes even for patients who are diligent about brushing and flossing daily. That’s because deep crevices and overlapping teeth can create the perfect hideout for harmful oral bacteria that cause decay. If one of your teeth develops a cavity, you can rest-assured that we offer a simple, aesthetically-pleasing, and protective solution, tooth-colored fillings. Using a biocompatible composite resin, Dr. Barge will fill in the decayed portion of the tooth to seal it off from sustaining additional damage. With proper care, the treatment should last for years before needing to be replaced.
