There are different answers to the question of how a cavity should be treated, as there are different degrees of harm that need to be addressed, and also because there are different restorations that can be used to protect teeth after they are treated. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we provide care with dental fillings that are made with a composite resin material, which means we can offer conservative treatment that minimizes permanent changes to your tooth structure and also preserves the way you look! This is work that we can complete in as little as one appointment, so you will have little time to wait to see the right results from restorative care!

How Will Your Tooth Remain Safe After It Is Damaged By A Cavity?

If your tooth is damaged by a cavity, you will need to have a restoration placed. Unfortunately, we do not heal naturally and replace the portion of our enamel that we lose when a cavity forms. This is why restorative dental work ends with the placement of a filling or crown. The good news is that fillings can be placed that imitate healthy enamel. In just one appointment, we can have one ready that keeps your tooth safe without altering how it looks.

Placing Your Custom Dental Filling After Dealing With Decay

The composite material we use for our fillings is able to adhere directly to your enamel thanks to its biocompatible nature. The material will be carefully administered after we take care to remove decayed tissues from the tooth structure. After being applied, the substance will harden and create a remarkably strong bond. Because this is work we can complete in just one appointment, you will not have to go through a frustrating delay before you have the protection you require!

Why You Might Require A Crown Instead Of A Filling

Not everyone receives the same kind of treatment for dental decay, as some patients need the additional support of a crown instead of a filling. We can use both full crowns and partial crowns when providing services. We will base the decision of how to treat you on the state of your smile at the time you come in for care.
