While the human body is capable of healing many areas on its own, that is not the case for your tooth enamel. As a result, teeth that are damaged by tooth decay or trauma experience a much higher risk of more damage if the patient doesn’t seek treatment. A tooth that may have only needed a dental filling at first could end up requiring a crown, for example. Minor tooth decay can result in the need for root canal therapy, and so on. Addressing the issue ahead of time is always the best next step to take if your tooth is damaged. Not only do you protect your oral health, but you also save money in the long-term!
Dental crowns are some of the most common restorations provided in dentistry to date. Also known as caps, dental crowns are designed to fit over the top of existing teeth damaged by decay or trauma. They are custom-made to seal the damaged tooth from bacteria, therefore preventing them from developing future decay without needing an extraction or root canal therapy. The crown can be fabricated from high-quality dental porcelain, ensuring that it blends in well with the rest of your smile.
For teeth with minor damage, tooth-colored fillings offer a highly aesthetic benefit compared to dark-colored silver fillings of the past. Those who may have received silver fillings in the past are well-aware of their tendency to reflect light, making them more visible than you’d prefer. Since tooth-colored fillings are made from composite resin, their color can be custom-shaded to match your existing teeth exactly. They’re also more flexible compared to silver fillings, making them easier to place inside of damaged teeth. The result is a long-lasting and natural-looking restoration!
