Dental Crowns and Fillings

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair small to moderate cavities caused by tooth decay. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the resulting space, or cavity, is filled with a restorative material. The choice of filling material depends on factors like the location of the cavity, the extent of the decay, and the patient's aesthetic preferences. Fillings help restore the tooth's structure and prevent further decay.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are prosthetic devices that cover the entire visible portion of a damaged or weakened tooth. Crowns are often used in situations where a tooth has undergone significant decay, has a large filling, or has undergone root canal therapy. They can also be used for cosmetic purposes to enhance the appearance of misshapen or discolored teeth. Crowns are typically made from materials such as porcelain, metal, or a combination of both. The process involves reshaping the tooth to create space for the crown, taking impressions, and placing a temporary crown while the permanent one is fabricated. Once ready, the permanent crown is cemented onto the prepared tooth, providing strength, protection, and improved aesthetics.

In summary, dental fillings are used to restore teeth with small to moderate cavities, while dental crowns are employed when a tooth is extensively damaged or weakened. Both procedures contribute to maintaining the tooth's function, structure, and overall oral health. The choice between a filling and a crown depends on the specific condition of the tooth and the treatment goals. Your dentist will assess your dental health and recommend the most appropriate treatment for your individual case.
