Dental Fillings and Crowns

Long-lasting restorations for a healthy smile.

 

 

Tooth-Colored Restorations

Tooth-colored/bonded restorations are natural-looking fillings that prevent further tooth decay while replacing lost tooth structure.Composite tooth-colored dental fillings come in a variety of shades to match the color of the actual and surrounding tooth structures, and can generally be placed during one office visit. This bonding procedure can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth.

 

Silver Fillings

Silver amalgam fillings have been used for over 70 years, providing a safe, strong, long-lasting restoration to replace tooth structure lost to fracture or decay. Silver amalgam fillings are reliable, less expensive than other options, and typically have better insurance coverage. While silver amalgam fillings don't blend naturally into the surrounding tooth structure, they can last a lifetime without ever needing to be replaced. However, as amalgam fillings do contain silver, there's a small possibility that the material can leach into your body.

 

Dental Crowns

A dental crown may be required as part of your dental care and treatment in order to repair the damage done to your teeth over the years. Crowns are constructed from such materials as high-grade porcelain, gold bonded porcelain, or gold. Fitting a crown requires two visits to Barrett Family Dental.

During your first appointment, Dr. Barrett will remove any decay, shape the tooth as needed, and then fit the tooth with a temporary crown. On your subsequent visit, Beaverton dentist Dr. Barrett will replace the temporary crown with a custom-fitted one. Once any necessary adjustments are completed, the custom crown will be cemented into place to provide you with a new, beautiful looking tooth.

 

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is essential to treat an infected tooth. There are three primary reasons why you may need to get a root canal:

  •   To stop a toothache.
  •   To prevent bacteria (and pain) from spreading into the jaw.
  •   To keep your real tooth instead of getting a bridge or a denture.

Avoiding treatment for this condition can lead to more serious oral health problems. When the tissue inside a tooth gets infected with bacteria, it causes the tissue to die and an infection begins.

It is very important to catch this problem before it deteriorates too far. The first step of the procedure is to anesthetize the affected area. The next step is to open the surface of the tooth and determine a length of each canal. Each canal is then cleaned and shaped in preparation for the filling material.

Once each canal is prepared, it is filled with an inert material called gutta percha. The canals are then sealed. The tooth is now ready for a restoration, which is usually a crown. This entire procedure is often completed in two visits.
