As part of your cavity treatment, your Corona, CA dentist will place a restoration to keep your tooth safe. The type of restoration you receive will depend on how much protection needs to be provided for your tooth. Many times, patients will receive care in time to qualify for treatment with dental fillings. These restorations are more conservative, as they only cover a limited portion of your tooth structure in order to provide the protection needed. Our office can place a dental filling that effectively mimics healthy enamel, so this work will not alter your smile even if the filling is set in a conspicuous location! When necessary, we are prepared to offer more advanced services to ensure that your procedure fully addresses your needs.

Why You Need A Dental Restoration To Complete Cavity Treatment

While cavity treatment stops the spread of decay and takes care of bacteria that are responsible for damaging your enamel, that damage will be permanent. In order to protect your tooth, a dental filling or dental crown will be put in place. Both of these options are capable of helping you enjoy meaningful protection; the choice of which to use is made after evaluating your tooth. If you need more significant support, we can use a dental crown to make sure that you have enough coverage, and that you can still bite and chew without difficulty. However, when a cavity is caught in time, a conservative and lifelike dental filling can provide enough support while only covering the area where your cavity formed!

What You Can Expect From A Filling Placed At Our Practice

A filling placed at our dental office will provide long-term protection for your tooth while only requiring minimal changes. The composite resin material that we use is applied after the decayed area is carefully treated and removed. After that application, the substance both hardens and becomes permanently affixed to the tooth structure. Because the resin material bonds to your enamel, it can create a remarkably strong hold, one that ensures that your tooth will remain protected against structural damage as well as infection.

What If You Need More Than The Protection A Filling Offers?

Based on our review of your tooth after a cavity has formed, we will determine if you need more than just a filling. With both partial crowns and full crowns available to care for teeth, we can provide protection when more functional support is needed. We are also able to help if we find that an infection has developed and a tooth is in need of root canal therapy.
