Unfortunately, there is not a way for your tooth to repair itself when a cavity forms. In fact, decay will only continue to spread, and make your condition worse, until your dentist intervenes. As part of your restorative dental care, you will receive a filling or crown to address the dental material lost to decay. Both of these restorations can be made with life-like materials, so they will not create a disruption that impacts how you look. In addition to being of high esthetic quality, modern fillings and crowns are remarkably durable, meaning they can protect your tooth for years without issue.
Modern Dental Fillings Can Provide A Good Visual Match With Your Tooth
Dental fillings made from composite resin offer cosmetic benefits because they can resemble your natural dental enamel. However, this is not the only advantage that they can claim over metal fillings. This material will bond with your tooth, improving the stability of your restoration. This prevents the formation of small spaces between a filling and your tooth. Once your filling is placed, your tooth will enjoy protection from future infections, and structural support.
Using CEREC Technology To Provide Single Day Crowns
Because your dentist has access to CEREC technology, you will be able to receive a life-like dental crown in just one appointment! These crowns are made with dental ceramic, which can be used to construct restorations that closely mimic natural teeth. Same day crowns also eliminate any concern that your vulnerable tooth might have to go without important protection. Once placed, a CEREC restoration will be able to offer ample protection for many years, while keeping your smile looking great.
