Restorative Dentistry – Wauwatosa, WI
Treating Dental Damage Without Drawing Attention to It
Two common oral health problems that we see at Wauwatosa Dental Arts are dental damage, like a broken or chipped tooth, and decay, also known as cavities. While they may not seem like big deals, especially if the damage is minor, when left untreated, these problems can result in serious additional damage to your smile, like a tooth infection. To preserve these natural teeth and keep your oral health on the right track, we offer customized, natural-looking dental restorations.
Why Choose Wauwatosa Dental Arts for Restorative Dentistry?
- Strong, Biocompatible Cavity Fillings
- We Accept Dental Insurance
- Natural-Looking Crowns & Fillings
Dental crowns are cap-like structures that we specifically craft to fit over the biting surface of your natural tooth. These versatile restorations can be used to address majorly misshapen teeth, support a large filling, or even provide extra protection and strength to a tooth that has already been treated. We can craft them from a variety of metals and natural-looking materials, but most of our patients prefer to have theirs made from customized, color-matched ceramic or porcelain to make them virtually indistinguishable from their surrounding teeth.
Our tooth-colored fillings are made from a putty-like substance known as composite resin. This material can be custom-shaded to match the color of your enamel, making them practically unnoticeable when you smile or laugh. Due to the biocompatible nature of the material, the resin is able to chemically bond with your natural enamel, which eliminates many of the problems that we see with older, metal fillings, like leaking that leads to infections. When you need to treat a cavity at Wauwatosa Dental Arts, you can expect to receive the most advanced and effective treatment with a tooth-colored filling.
