When you find out how much harm a cavity can do when it is not treated, you can understand why patients are told to schedule restorative dental work as soon as possible. However, you may worry that bringing cavity concerns to the wrong dentist will mean treatment that ultimately changes your smile for the worse. Can you have problems with dental decay treated without receiving a conspicuous or unattractive metal dental filling or dental crown? Our Upton, MA dentist’s office relies on restorations that imitate healthy tooth structure when we address issues with cavities. Because of this, we can restore a problem tooth and still preserve your appearance!
We Use Lifelike Restorations To Restore Teeth!
The dental fillings and dental crowns that we use to restore teeth after cavities are addressed can match the color and texture of healthy enamel. Because of this, they can be put in place without hurting your smile and making you self-conscious about the way you look! These restorations are still capable of providing functional support. This is important, because it means you can still bite and chew without worrying that your filling or crown will be damaged or come loose.
Restoring Your Tooth Structure After A Cavity By Placing A Filling
Dental fillings are the first treatment option recommended for patients with cavities. Dental fillings only cover the space where decay has formed. The resin substance we use to create custom fillings actually bonds to your enamel to provide a stable hold. In addition to looking more like healthy enamel, these fillings can prevent space from opening between the restoration and your tooth, which prevents bacteria from gathering and causing new problems for you.
Arranging Treatment With A Same-Day Dental Crown
We use CEREC technology at our practice to create dental crowns that are ready to cap your problem tooth in just a single appointment. We rely on digital technology to both carefully measure your tooth and design a restoration that will provide a secure fit. After this is done, we will produce a ceramic restoration that can imitate the tooth being restored. Dental crowns are only used for treatment when cavities grow too large to make dental fillings appropriate. Crowns can also be used to restore teeth when they have been chipped, cracked, or broken, and the damage is too serious for a cosmetic dental procedure to be effective.
