Restorative Dentistry – Dallas, TX
Repairing Teeth with Lifelike Crowns and Fillings
Teeth may look like bones, but they’re actually very different. The enamel protecting them doesn’t contain any living cells; that means once it’s broken, it’s broken for good. As such, you’ll need Dr. Brumbaugh’s help if you want to return a damaged or decayed tooth back to its full size and strength with restorative dentistry in Dallas, TX. Don’t worry about having a highly visible piece of metal in your mouth afterwards; our restorations are made out of beautiful tooth-colored materials that can be shaded to look just like the real thing! Call us today to schedule a consultation if you have a tooth that has been weakened or injured.

Crowns are extremely versatile and can be used for many different reasons. Naturally, they can hold damaged teeth together and help protect them from fractures and decay in the future. They’re also an invaluable component for forms of tooth replacement such as dental bridges and implants. We favor ceramic materials to make crowns since they very closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth, right down to their normal color and the way they reflect natural light.
The enhanced strength and durability of composite resin restorations gives us the ability to repair damage to teeth caused by decay or fracture. These composites can even be used on back teeth, where they must withstand extreme forces that result from chewing.
The esthetics of some of the newer hybrid composite/ceramic materials mimic the appearance of natural teeth. These materials allow a conservative treatment option for patients wanting cosmetic bonding on front teeth allowing correction of tooth shade, length, and shape.
CEREC One-Visit Dental Restorations
Would you rather not wait for weeks to receive a dental crown? Thanks to the CEREC system, you can enjoy a much more efficient restoration process. First, we prepare your teeth to receive a crown. The next step is to scan your mouth and send the information to a special milling machine in our dental office, which will create a crown out of a block of ceramic right then and there. In other words, we can design and place your crown over the course of a single day!
