If you have a cavity, you will experience permanent damage to your enamel. This can be an unfortunate reality, but it does not have to mean the permanent loss of confidence in your smile. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can recommend restorative services that protect teeth affected by decay and also preserve the way they look. Whether you need a dental filling for a smaller cavity or a crown for one that does more harm to your enamel, you can look forward to a service that prioritizes the preservation of your health as well as your appearance. Remember that we can also provide important preventive care to help you avoid future difficulties with decay.
Will Cavity Treatment Lead To Unwanted Smile Changes?
If you have problems with tooth decay that stay untreated, you can experience unwelcome changes in your health and appearance. In addition to being painful, a severe cavity can cause swelling around a tooth and change its color. Eventually, the problem can create such severe trouble for a tooth that it cannot be saved, which means you find yourself in need of prosthetic treatment to save your complete smile. The good news is that while a cavity can have significant consequences for your smile, restorative treatment can preserve the way you look and also provide functional support. Based on the condition of your tooth at the time of your appointment, we can discuss the different options for care that are available to you.
Placing A Conservative Filling To Restore Your Tooth
A cavity that is caught in time can be addressed with a dental filling. This conservative restoration only covers the area where decay damaged your enamel. Because we only need to cover this limited space, you preserve the remaining healthy structure. A special resin material we use to provide fillings is able to bond to your enamel and match how it looks. As a result, your procedure can lead to long-term protection and sustained bite support while not hurting how you look!
Using A Same-Day Crown To Complete Dental Work
While other dental practices can ask that patients book two separate appointments to have dental crowns put in place, our office provides CEREC crowns that are ready in just one visit! We have the means to digitally measure a tooth, design its restoration, and produce it at our practice. Once prepared, the ceramic crown is secured over the vulnerable tooth to provide functional and cosmetic support.
