Crowns and Fillings: Which is Right for You?

Do you ever wonder what you might be able to do to protect your teeth? Do you know what you may need to do to avoid a cavity? In reality, there are several things you should contemplate doing, including brushing and flossing your teeth. However, do you know what treatment you might need to consider to keep your teeth healthy and strong?

As you might already know, our team could recommend a filling to address tooth decay, as long as your decay isn’t too severe. Fillings are a very popular choice because they don’t require much preparation and preserve most of your natural tooth. The color of fillings can also be matched to the color of your natural teeth.

If we can’t address your cavity with a filling, we may recommend a dental crown. Dental crowns are also made to blend with your natural teeth. A Crown could also be used to protect your pearly whites. For instance, we’ll place a crown if you had root canal therapy. Doing so can prevent future decay.
