Restorative Dentistry



Tooth enamel is different from bone; it’s more rigid and durable, but it has no living tissue and can’t regrow once lost. A natural process called remineralization can make up for little bits of enamel lost during the day. Still, you’ll need a dental restoration such as a filling or a crown for extensive damage due to decay or trauma. If you’ve been looking to fix your smile, schedule a consultation to discuss restorative dentistry in North Dallas, TX, with Dr. Le today.

Did you know? A dental crown restores the strength of a decayed tooth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

We can remove decay from your tooth, but something needs to be done about the enamel that has been lost. We can fill small to mid-size cavities with a tooth-colored composite resin. Unlike gold or metal amalgam, composite resin can be shaded so that it matches the color of the tooth, helping it blend in perfectly to restore your smile’s appearance in addition to reversing the damage that it has already suffered.

Dental Crowns

A filling isn't always enough to hold a damaged tooth together; severe dental injuries require a dental crown. We can make this type of restoration out of porcelain to closely imitate a natural tooth. These crowns are very durable, so you can expect one to last for about 5 to 15 years. Other materials can be used to make a crown, but we usually suggest all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns for aesthetic benefits. LEARN MORE ABOUT DENTAL CROWNS

Dental Bridges

A fixed dental bridge is suitable for patients looking to replace a single tooth or a few adjacent teeth. It uses the teeth on either side of the gap – also called abutment teeth – for support. This prevents the remaining teeth from drifting out of place and upsetting the balance of your natural bite. Just like individual crowns, dental bridges are typically made from porcelain and can be shaded so that they closely resemble your natural teeth.


If you’re missing 1-4 consecutive teeth on the same side or front of your mouth, then you may qualify as a candidate. Patients who can’t use implants for missing space will also get great results from this procedure. You’ll also need to have healthy gums because inflammation and recession can affect the fit and appearance of the bridge. All periodontal issues would have to be treated before starting a dental bridge treatment.

Yes. Tooth-colored fillings are made up of custom mixed resin composite. The composite mixture is personalized to blend in as your tooth’s color. This results in a bonded filling that looks natural.

Most patients schedule more than one visit to get proper care instructions, and their treatment plan starts.

  • The First Visit

We examine and prep the tooth getting the crown. To identify tooth decay, infections, or pulp injury, we take an x-ray of your tooth. If a root canal treatment is necessary, we begin the procedure before the dental crown treatment. Patients with healthy teeth and gums continue getting the crown, and then the dentist files the tooth on the top and sides. If you have severe damage or decay, we use a filling solution to enhance the tooth’s structure. After reshaping, a paste is used to mold the tooth. The mold includes the teeth above and below the tooth od treatment because it ensures the crown is customized to your bite’s measurements. The mold is provided to a dental laboratory and is ready within two to three weeks. While the permanent crown is being produced, you’ll wear a temporary crown.

  • The Second Visit

You’ll get a fitting of the crown and get it examined to ensure it properly fits your tooth. A numbing ointment is put on the tooth of treatment to maximize your comfort, and the crown is cemented. The procedure only takes 15 minutes or less to complete.

With proper care, dental crowns can last five to fifteen years. The resilient material prevents wear and tear on the crown. Since crowns aren’t indestructible, we can provide you with a replacement if it chips.
