Receiving Life-Like Restorations After Cavity Treatment
Posted November 22, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
When you discover you need restorative dental care for tooth decay, you may feel a rush of anxious thoughts. How will a cavity impact your overall oral health? What will decay mean for your smile? When your dentist sets out to restore your tooth, their goal will be to fully address your concerns. Your cavity will be completely excised, so that it no longer poses a threat to your tooth. If you have suffered internal issues because of an advanced cavity, you can require a root canal, which will protect the tooth’s living tissue. Once decay is addressed, your dentist will provide a dental filling or dental crown. These restorations can be made to match your surrounding teeth, so they will not disrupt your appearance.
Dental fillings made from composite resin are able to blend with your tooth, so they do not affect how it looks. This means you can feel confident that your smile is not negatively impacted by the presence of a restoration. Composite resin is also popular because it can form bond to your tooth, and will be less likely to shift when exposed to heat or cold.
With a porcelain dental crown in place, your smile can look completely natural, despite the presence of your restoration. This material is able to match the color and texture of natural teeth. In fact, a crown placed over an unsightly or unhealthy tooth can actually lead to an overall improvement in how you look!
