A cavity results when oral bacteria cause continued damage to your enamel, eventually causing damage that requires restorative dental work. This is something that you can consistently prevent through smart daily oral hygiene habits, and by attending regular dental exams. While our Riverside, CA dentist’s office is certainly ready to help you fight problems with tooth decay, you should know that we are also prepared to help you recover from a physical dental injury. If you have chipped, cracked, or otherwise broken a tooth, we can help you by restoring it. We are even able to act quickly and provide care if the situation is a dental emergency!
We Can Provide Treatment If Your Tooth Is Chipped Or Cracked
A chipped or cracked tooth can be unsightly, and it can be a concern for your dental health. The approach your dentist takes to treating you can depend on the severity of the damage. If the harm is relatively minor, we may be able to provide improvements through conservative cosmetic dental work. However, if we have concerns about the health of your tooth, we can make plans to restore it with a dental crown.
Can I Have My Tooth Restored Through Cosmetic Work?
If there is a reason to think that your tooth’s health is affected by damage to your enamel, if you have a harder time biting and chewing, or if you are at risk for further damage, a dental crown can be put in place. Cosmetic dental work can be more conservative than restorative dentistry, but the effect of cosmetic work is only esthetic, meaning it is not meant to provide functional protection or support. With that said, there are some cases where visible trauma is not serious enough to require restorative work, so your dentist can move forward with a cosmetic procedure.
Responding To A Dental Emergency
If you have any reason to see your dental injury as an emergency problem, we are here to help! By offering prompt service, we can make sure that your tooth is taken care of in the shortest time possible. Because of this, you can spend less time in pain, and also have a shorter waiting period before your smile is restored.
