A dental filling is the simplest way to restore small cavities. The benefits of a filling is that it helps prevent tooth decay from spreading to adjacent teeth and causing further damage and it saves your tooth from most expensive treatment and pain. Dental fillings are a virtually painless treatment that will leave your tooth in its natural shape and function.
We use the highest quality, BPA-free composite resin to help restore your tooth to guarantee your filling is safe and long-lasting. If you are in need of a slightly larger filling, we offer several cosmetic options depending on your needs and budget.
There are times where a dental filling simply isn’t enough to help save your tooth. No need to worry. Restorative dentistry in Encinitas delivers the best solutions for teeth that need a little but more support from cracking or wearing down.
A dental crown, or cap, is recommended to to cover the entire tooth to provide more support stability than a dental filling. Your dental crown is custom made to match your adjacent teeth and repair any damage from tooth decay or trauma. Crowns help hold a three or four unit bridge in place and cover malformed teeth. Crowns protect teeth following a root canal procedure. There are even crowns for children’s teeth if they have a large enough cavity or need a baby root canal (pulpotomy).
