For many years now, silver fillings have been used to restore decayed teeth. Over time, teeth tend to crack as a result of the expansion and contraction of the silver when exposed to the hot and cold liquids we drink. These fractures start off small and are difficult to detect. Eventually, the fractures go deeper and cause temperature and pressure sensitivity when biting, or cause large portions of the tooth to break off. In many instances, a root canal procedure becomes necessary to resolve the symptoms. Additionally, it becomes more difficult and costly to restore the tooth.

A more preventative approach is to replace silver fillings with new composite fillings or porcelain-bonded restorations before cracking occurs. This usually prevents further deterioration of the tooth. Dental composites chemically adhere to the tooth and bind it together restoring strength and integrity. Composites are typically as strong as the original tooth and can be formulated to match your tooth color. You’ll be pleased with how natural they feel alongside your original teeth.

I'll be the first to admit.... I hate going to the dentist. But Dr. Crane and his staff are phenomenal!!!!! Melissa was the best dental assistant, she made sure I felt comfortable and at ease. My teeth are in horrible condition and they gave me hope and did not make me feel judged like other places have in the past.

Dr. Scott Crane is wonderful and very knowledgeable. His hygienists are really good too. They have digital x-rays, and up to date equipment . The staff in the front office are pleasant, and do a great job with billing and the likes. I like going there, I highly recommend them.

I am fearful about going to the dentist. I put off the visit as long as I could, then Dr. Crane and Dental Care of Sumner were recommended to me. The first visit I was extremely nervous, however, the office staff, Hygienists and Dr. Crane, are all kind, professional and friendly. Everyone in the practice does what they can do to make the patient comfortable, informed and at ease. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Crane to anyone fearful of going to a dentist. Clean, friendly, kind and on time for appointments.
