Addressing A Cavity With An Appearance-Friendly Restoration

Oct 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Restorative Dentistry

A cavity will do permanent damage to your tooth, but this does not signal the end of your smile as you know it. Because your dentist uses restorations made with modern, appearance-friendly materials, you can see a dental crown or dental filling provide discreet, important support to a tooth. By providing a natural-looking dental filling, your dentist can support your vulnerable tooth without creating a disruption to its appearance. In addition to being ready in just a single visit, E4D crowns are made with ceramic, and will closely match the look of the tooth being treated.

Your Tooth Will Need Permanent Protection After You Suffer A Cavity

A cavity creates damage on a tooth that is not going to go away on its own. Unfortunately, this means that the protection you need must stay in place permanently. Fortunately, appearance-friendly restorative work can still provide enduring protection. Your filling or crown will hold up admirably for many years, as long as you exercise smart preventive dental habits in between dental appointments.

Have Your Cavity Treated Sooner If You Want To Limit Damage To Your Tooth

A prompt trip to the dentist’s office can make the difference between needing a dental filling, and a dental crown. There is no way for you to slow down the spread of decay when a cavity has formed on a tooth. If you leave too much time for it to grow, it can do more damage than a filling will be able to fix. A crown is able to cover all of your tooth above your gum line, and provide enough support to make it useful in biting and chewing.
