OUR COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES
We custom-make crowns (or caps) for your teeth to cover the entire tooth down to the gums. At Star Smiles, we use crowns to protect teeth that have damage or decay, or if they have had a root canal. Crowns are created from porcelain or porcelain fused with metal. They are made in a laboratory to fit perfectly and match your surrounding teeth.
Amalgam is a metal alloy created from several metals that are extremely strong. These can withstand a lot of intense biting or chewing. Amalgam fillings are most useful for filling molars where there will be a lot of biting, and where the silver color will not be as noticeable as it would be in the front of the mouth. This metal material is usually less expensive than composite fillings and is stronger.
