If you’re interested in knowing more about dental care, our dentist, Dr. Ned Todorov, is more than happy to help you. Today, he will be happy to teach you about some of the common restorative dental treatments available. The more you know about dental care, the more you can know about your smile. The treatments he would like to teach you about include:

-Dental fillings: Dental fillings are traditionally used to treat cavities and damaged teeth. There are two types of fillings that are the most often used. Those are amalgam and composite fillings. The amalgam fillings are silver and are made of various metals while composite fillings match the color of your teeth and are made of a special dental resin.

-Dental crowns: Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the entire tooth up to the gumline. They basically replace the tooth enamel and restore the tooth’s function and health. They are custom made for your tooth and they provide natural-looking results.

-Dental bridges: Dental bridges replace your missing teeth without the need for surgery. They are made of two dental crowns and one or more false teeth. The crowns surround the false teeth and anchor the bridge to the remaining natural teeth in the mouth.
