Written by Dr. Brace on Apr 13, 2021

Dental crowns become necessary once a patient’s tooth is damaged due to injury or infection. With a personalized crown, you can rebuild missing tooth portions and repair your smile. Keep reading to learn more from our O’Fallon dentists 

Say “No Way” to Amalgam

You may already know that amalgam used to be the material of choice when it came time to repair and rebuild teeth. Because amalgam is a mix of metals (including mercury) these fillings were highly visible on the tooth’s surface. Our team now uses healthier and more attractive alternatives to amalgam. Both composite resin and porcelain look natural and hold up to the wear and tear of everyday life.

Advancements in Porcelain

As dental techniques and technologies continue to advance, our patients benefit from these innovations. For example, the porcelain our team uses today is even stronger than the porcelain we were using a decade ago. This means that we are able to craft restorations that are thinner than ever, without sacrificing durability. 

Your Smile Your Way  

Every aspect of your fillings and restorations will be personalized to fit you. From the shape, to the size, to the color of your crown, our team is here to ensure that your restoration blends with and enhances your smile. 

If you are currently living with dental damage, our O’Fallon dental team encourages you to reach out for timely treatment. It is possible to fully restore your smile and get your oral health back on track!
