Dr. Buck offers tooth-colored fillings to provide patients with discreet care. As the name suggests, tooth-colored fillings blend in with your smile for practically invisible results. What’s more, tooth-colored fillings are more supportive of your tooth’s natural structure, making them a more conservative choice.
A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, your all-porcelain crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment. We use porcelain crowns to maintain a fully white smile. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long-lasting. These benefits make them popular with dentists as well as patients.
Our teeth have multiple layers - three to be exact. The outer layer offers protection from harmful bacteria and plaque. Beneath this layer is sensitive dentin, and at the very center is a chamber that contains the components commonly referred to as the tooth’s “nerve.” While most dental problems involve the top two layers, there are times—because of a deep cavity or an injury—when an infection can develop inside this third layer, prompting the need for a procedure known as a root canal.
During a root canal, Dr. Buck will clean out the diseased canals at the heart of your tooth, removing all traces of infection. Then we’ll fill your tooth with a safe, biocompatible substance known as gutta-percha and cap it with a custom-made crown.
Removing a natural tooth is always a last resort. Before we recommend an extraction, we’ll consider whether any other treatments are available. Typically, we will only have to remove teeth if they’re so badly damaged or decayed that they can’t be salvaged through other means. We will keep you as comfortable as possible during the extraction process, and we’ll make sure that you’re informed about what the best options for filling in the gap in your smile are.
