Sometimes, despite our best efforts, teeth can still become damaged, decayed, or even incomplete over time. At Del Rey Dental, patients of all ages can find the kind, dedicated support they need in these trying situations from a team that truly cares. Dr. Tadros will be happy to review your available restorative options and help you determine the best path forward for rebuilding your smile’s strength and appearance in lasting ways.

What Happens if I Do Nothing?
While it’s certainly the easiest option to do nothing when dental injuries first strike, Dr. Tadros does encourage patients to seek out our team’s guidance, even if the issue in question seems relatively small or “not that bad.” Your teeth, unlike many other parts of your body, don’t have the ability to heal naturally from physical injuries and breakage – instead, these problems are only likely to worsen over time and may even turn into dental emergencies later down the road. By addressing the damage as early as possible, our team can save your family valuable time, money, and headaches!
Dental crowns are a highly common and versatile style of dental restoration. Also known as “caps,” they’re designed to cover whatever remains of a natural tooth that’s experienced a serious injury, advanced tooth decay, cosmetic imperfections, weakened structure, or other significant problems that need Dr. Tadros’ professional intervention. Once the crown is securely in place, it will both preserve what remains of the natural structure while also replenishing the tooth’s original shape, appearance, and ability to function.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Now, there are image-friendly alternatives to restoring teeth with dark-colored metals like silver and gold! At Del Rey Dental, we primarily recommend LAVA™ Zirconia for a highly customized and aesthetically pleasing result that also provides the reliable durability patients need to live life to the fullest. This proven material can be turned into lasting dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and more here in East Dallas.
