Are Cavities Having An Effect On Your Smile?

Cavities can pose a threat to your oral health, but can they also make trouble for your smile? Poor oral health can hurt your appearance, as your teeth can become worn, discolored, and generally less attractive. Past restorations have also been trouble for your appearance, because they could be a conspicuous presence among your teeth. Fortunately, with access to modern restorative dental care, your smile can look good after cavity treatment. This is made possible by the life-like materials used to construct dental crowns and dental fillings. As reassuring as it can be to learn that your smile will look great after treatment, you can also be glad to know these restorations are capable of staying secure for many years.

Different Levels Of Decay Can Require Different Treatments

Your dentist will adjust their approach to your cavity treatment to fit your needs. The severity and amount of decay can make a difference between your needing a dental filling, or a dental crown. Fortunately, both can match your natural tooth’s appearance. Thanks to the CEREC technology available to your dentist, crowns, like fillings, can be ready in a single appointment. It should also be noted that if your cavity is serious enough to cause internal problems for a tooth, a root canal treatment will be needed.

How Will My Smile Look After I Undergo Restorative Dental Work?

Your smile should not see any negative change brought on by your restorative dental work. Our practice is proud to use modern dental materials that combine support with esthetic value. In fact, the material used to construct dental fillings is used for some exclusively cosmetic dental work.
