Cosmetic Crowns

Dental crowns are a versatile, durable and practical restoration that help protect fractured, cracked and weak teeth from further damage. In days gone by, if a tooth broke or became weak, it was extracted. But thanks to modern dental care techniques, customized crowns at Smile Nuvo help preserve natural teeth and prevent the need for extraction. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, ceramic, metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal. While metal is very strong, it is not aesthetically pleasing. Even porcelain covered metal crowns tend to have an unsightly gray line at the gum line. However, new advances in dental technology have allowed cosmetic dentists the ability to create long lasting restorations resulting in a much more natural look. At Smile Nuvo, Dr. Elannan uses the latest techniques in conjunction with porcelain and composite materials to restore functionality of teeth and consistently strives to make restored teeth look completely natural.


Cavities, being one of the most common dental problems, are created when bacteria erode the dental enamel. To treat the cavity, the bacteria must be cleaned out before the cavity is filled. In the past, dental cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, which is a mixture of different metals such as silver or mercury. Now, we know that amalgam fillings do not completely bond with teeth and also that mercury can be dangerous to your health.

At Smile Nuvo, we are focused on providing patients with top-of-the-line solutions to meet their dental needs resulting in a beautiful, healthy smile. For this reason, composite resin fillings are the most common type of filling material used in our office. A composite (tooth-colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is damaged by decay or small cracks. The decayed or cracked portion of the tooth is removed and materials called composite resin fillings are used, designed to match the color of your teeth. It’s a great option for work done on your front teeth or other teeth visible when you smile.
