The path to a fully healthy smile may involve restorative dental work for more than one tooth. People who go too long without a dental exam may develop several cavities, all of which must be treated to stop your oral health from worsening. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we are ready to take on the needs of patients with more than one tooth affected by decay. During an initial evaluation, we can identify which cavities are most serious and make their treatment a priority to prevent them from growing worse. The dental fillings and dental crowns that we provide you can imitate healthy tooth structure, so your treatments can occur without changing your appearance.

Every Cavity Is A Cause For Concern

Even if it has just formed, a cavity is a cause for concern. Decay can be prevented with good daily hygiene habits and smart dieting. While your enamel can recover from small amounts of damage, cavities do irreversible harm to your smile. Once they form, they will continue growing and doing more damage to your enamel. Eventually, the damage is serious enough to cause infections that lead to pain and sensitivity, and put you at risk for losing teeth!

Addressing Advanced Dental Decay

When we make plans to address several cavities that affect a patient’s smile, we will note which teeth are in the worst condition. Identifying and treating these teeth first can limit your risk for complications and put a stop to active discomfort. When needed, we will provide root canal therapy for teeth experiencing internal problems.

Will My Treatments Affect My Appearance?

You may worry that your smile will change after work to address decay is completed. What you can find instead is that your dentist is ready to restore teeth with fillings and crowns that mimic the appearance of healthy enamel! Both of these restorations are still able to protect teeth enough to let you bite and chew without difficulties. The decision to place a filling or crown will be based on the amount of damage done by a cavity. Simply put, some cavities are too large to address with fillings, because these restorations are not able to provide enough support.
