Our Elmhurst Dentist Shares Information About Modern Restorations

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Mar 16, 2021

As dental technology continues to advance, it is only becoming easier for patients to achieve their aesthetic and restorative dentistry goals. Our Elmhurst restorative dentists have compiled this information about state-of-the-art crowns to catch you up on some of the innovations in this area. Let’s get started!

Kiss Amalgam Goodbye

You may remember that amalgam fillings used to be the go-to dental material when it came to repairing and restoring teeth. Now, however, our team uses metal-free materials like porcelain and composite resin to transform smiles. Both resin and porcelain resin deliver natural-looking, long-lasting, and aesthetically pleasing results.

Upgrades In Porcelain

Porcelain has long been an ideal material for restorative treatment. Not only does it look like natural enamel, it is also strong enough to hold up to daily wear and tear. Modern porcelain is even better than its predecessor, because it is stronger and thus more durable. Thanks to the natural strength of porcelain, our team is able to craft restorations that are less obtrusive than older iterations.

Personalization Possibilities

Our team is able to fine-tune and customize your crowns, down to the smallest detail. We actually use your natural teeth as guides for the size, shape, color, and angularity of the restoration we’re crafting.

If you think that your smile would benefit from a restoration or crown, please do not hesitate to contact our Elmhurst dentists for more information or to schedule a consultation. We are here to help you!
