Instead of placing a chunk of dark metal to repair a cavity, we can use a filling made from a putty-like material called composite resin. Dr. Madry can shade the resin to match the color of your tooth enamel, ensuring it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb once placed. The resin also bonds directly with your tooth, so there is less of a need to remove your natural tooth structure in order to place the filling.
One of the most versatile treatments in dentistry, a dental crown can hold a broken tooth together, restore a decayed tooth when a filling isn’t enough, and much more. This tooth-shaped “cap” covers the visible portion of the tooth in its entirety, protecting it from any further damage and allowing it to function as normal. Like fillings, crowns were traditionally made from dark metals, but Dr. Madry prefers to use natural-looking materials like porcelain, zirconia, and EMAX.
One-Visit Dental Restorations
Most dentists take two appointments to complete the dental crown process: one to prepare the tooth and take impressions, and another several weeks later when the crown arrives from an offsite dental lab. At Rob Madry, DDS, you can conveniently receive a dental crown in a single visit! With our glidewell.io technology, we can take digital scans of your tooth, which our computer sends to our in-house milling machine. In one hour or less, this machine creates your custom crown from a block of zirconia. With one-visit crowns, you can enjoy your newly repaired smile much more quickly without needing to schedule two separate appointments!
