What if I Do Nothing?
While ignoring a minor dental problem might seem like the more budget-friendly option, in the long run, this will end up costing a patient much more. The teeth aren’t able to heal themselves like other parts of the body, so decay inevitably spreads, and weakened enamel will continue to crack and break. This can lead to more pain and even lost teeth, both of which can be prevented by seeking out restorative care as early as possible. Whatever a patient ends up needing, it will be much more affordable than having to replace a tooth!
Dental crowns are the cornerstone of restorative dentistry because they have so many applications. They are shaped to look and function just like natural teeth, and they work by literally fitting over a damaged tooth. With one, our team can fix a large cavity, put a broken tooth back together, strengthen a root canal-treated tooth, and even enhance a cosmetically imperfect tooth. Crowns can even be used to replace missing teeth when paired with dental implants.
Tooth-colored fillings enable our team to repair minor cavities without altering the appearance of a tooth, unlike a traditional silver filling. They are made of a composite resin material that can be shaded to match a patient’s enamel so the restoration itself seamlessly blends into the smile. Only you and your dentist will be able to tell where it is! Plus, because they are metal-free, tooth-colored fillings also don’t cause additional sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
