Today, a tooth damaged by a cavity, severe wear, or a crack can be restored using durable, life-like materials. Perhaps best of all, these materials can be created to match your natural tooth color. You get the best of both worlds: renewed oral health with no dark metal to detract from your smile’s appearance.
The doctors often recommends long-lasting, natural-looking composite resin to fill cavities. This material forms a strong bond with natural tooth structure to protect against future damage by decay-causing bacteria. Drs. Risinger and Murphy will custom tint the composite resin to match the shade of your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.
The doctor uses composite resin to repair newly diagnosed decay and to replace old, metal fillings. If you want to keep your all-white smile and enjoy long-lasting oral health and wellness, ask Drs. Risinger and Murphy if a tooth-colored filling is the right choice for you.
We offer porcelain crowns to restore teeth damaged by extensive decay, wear, or fracture. A crown sits atop and completely covers a compromised tooth to renew form, function, and protection. The porcelain used to create custom crowns looks and feels like natural tooth enamel. Drs. Risinger and Murphy will design your porcelain crown, and a ceramic artist at a dental lab will create it specifically for your smile. Once permanently bonded in place, a porcelain crown delivers exceptional durability and lasting results.
