Restorative Dentistry – Sherman, TX
Customized, Natural Dental Restorations For a Functional Smile
It is our goal to save your natural teeth and help you avoid possible tooth extraction. Although we have much experience repairing and rebuilding smiles of all types, we do aim to avoid these situations if at all possible. However, when tooth decay or damage causes a tooth to decline, we can use tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and even one-visit dental restorations to rebuild and enhance a person’s smile. Call us today to find out if you require restorative dentistry from our Sherman, TX dentist and find out if you’re a candidate.

- Dental Insurance Welcome
- Natural-Looking Materials Used
Also known as a “cap,” a dental crown is custom-made with the help of trusted lab technicians. After capturing impressions of your altered tooth, we can apply a temporary restoration while your fabricated one is fabricated. But before this personalized and fully customizable crown is put into place, our team must clear out any decayed or damaged areas first. When finished, the crown will rest atop the vulnerable tooth, allowing you to regain functionality and a more natural-looking appearance.
When a cavity forms but does not penetrate further than the tooth enamel, we may be able to treat it with a tooth-colored filling. Made up of composite resin that is color-matched to the shade of your tooth, it is highly malleable and allows you to keep more of your natural tooth structure, unlike traditional amalgam. With tooth-colored fillings, you can expect to enjoy a beautifully blended approach that is durable and reliable.
CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns
A normal dental crown takes several weeks to create and put into place. But what if you discovered there was a quicker way to get your smile back on track? There is with CEREC same-day crowns. Using specialized CEREC technology, we can clean your problem tooth, capture three-dimensional images of the tooth, make digital adjustments, and fabricate the crown in just one visit. While you wait, your crown will be created using an in-house milling unit, and once it is finished, we will secure it into place. This not only eliminates the need for a temporary, but it also reduces your wait time, which is why many patients prefer CEREC dental crowns.
