Composite Fillings

Today's composites not only look more natural but are also tougher, more versatile and can be used to:
· Restore small- to mid-sized cavities
· Reshape chipped teeth and broken teeth
· Replace amalgam fillings
Composite fillings have other benefits, too. If you have sensitive teeth, composite fillings may make them less sensitive to hot and cold. And with composites, more of your tooth structure stays intact – that’s not the case with silver fillings. Composite fillings are also easily fixable if they’re damaged. The best part is they look great!

Beautiful Porcelain Crowns

Crowns constructed with modern, natural-looking porcelain can restore function, appearance, and the proportion of your smiling face.

If more than half of your tooth has been restored with a filling, a crown is necessary. Without adequate support, the tooth may break away around the filling. As a rule, when fillings get larger, teeth become weaker. See more about porcelain crowns here including a movie: http://www.stonesmiles.com/porcelain-crowns/
