RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY – NEW BRAUNFELS, TX
PROTECTING WEAKENED TEETH
The enamel protecting your teeth is stronger than bone; it can be difficult to imagine it ever breaking or wearing down. Of course, the simple truth is that over time normal wear and tear, acid attacks, and dental injuries can end up doing a number on the teeth. If Dr. Albrecht finds signs of an injury or damage that could eventually compromise the strength and stability of your smile, he’ll help you find a way to restore the tooth so that you can continue to use it normally in your everyday life. In the event that you notice a problem with your tooth, call us right away to start exploring your options.
After harmful bacteria have been removed from a cavity, a filling is necessary to maintain the tooth’s integrity. This will also stop additional bacteria from reaching the pulp. You might be worried that a filling won’t look natural inside your mouth, but at New Braunfels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we take full advantage of modern dental materials such as composite resin to create fillings that look like a natural part of your smile.
Dental crowns serve a variety of functions, from holding a weakened tooth together to hiding cosmetic flaws. We can customize your crown to help it blend in with the rest of your mouth. The material we use mimics the color of enamel as well as the way it reflects the light; that means that once the crown has been attached most people won’t even be able to tell that you’ve had dental work performed in the first place.
