When a tooth is so worn or decayed that it’s on the brink of needing to be extracted, Dr. Kakkar can often save it using a dental crown. Once he places this tooth-shaped cap, an at-risk tooth will be shielded from sustaining even more damage. As a result, crowned teeth often go on to last for several decades longer than they would have otherwise. Dr. Kakkar can provide zirconia or porcelain crowns that are just as durable as metal ones but don’t look obvious in your smile.
Dentists have traditionally used metal amalgam fillings to repair tooth decay. Thanks to tooth-colored fillings, you can now have your cavity treated without modifying the tooth’s appearance. Tooth-colored fillings are made from composite resin, which Dr. Kakkar can shade so that it perfectly matches the rest of your grin. In the end, onlookers shouldn’t be able to tell that your tooth had a cavity to begin with.
