A Cavity Can Be Treated Without Altering Your Smile

If a cavity forms, there will be permanent damage to your enamel. Even if the problem is caught early, something will have to be done about the spread of decay that has affected your tooth. Patients who learn they need restorative dental work can worry that treatment might permanently change their appearance. How will you hide the evidence of treatment when you smile and speak? You can actually find that with the right restoration, your smile will not appear changed. Patients who visit Sunny Smiles for restorative dental work can receive dental fillings and dental crowns that imitate healthy enamel. Because of this, they can have a tooth restored without seeing the appearance of that tooth change.

Cavities Do Permanent Damage To Your Tooth Structure – We Can Help

When you effectively prevent dental problems like cavities from occurring, you make sure your teeth remain free of permanent damage that will require a dental filling or crown. Unfortunately, a cavity’s effect on your tooth is permanent. In order to keep that tooth stable and free of potential future infections, a restoration must remain in place for the life of the tooth. While your goal should be to avoid all troubles with decay, you should know that the treatment options we provide can take care of teeth without changing the way you look.

Your Tooth Can Be Restored With A Discreet Filling

During a routine dental exam, a cavity that is not large enough to cause discomfort can be spotted. Once the issue is identified, we can take care of the tooth by removing infected tissues and putting a dental filling in place. We rely on a biocompatible resin substance to create patients’ dental fillings. This material bonds to the enamel after being applied. Once that application occurs, it can stay in position and offer protection without standing apart from your enamel.

Arranging Treatment For An Advanced Cavity

When a cavity keeps growing, it will eventually cause an infection by allowing bacteria to enter your pulp and begin attacking the nerves inside. To fight this problem effectively, your dentist will have to perform root canal treatment. Once bacteria and infected tissues are all removed from the pulp, it can be safely sealed. At this point, a restoration is needed to make sure that the tooth stays safe. A dental crown made from porcelain or zirconia can do this job effectively while doing an impressive job imitating the appearance of a healthy tooth!
