Once a cavity forms, will you have to say goodbye to the smile you once knew? Decay’s effect on your tooth structure is not reversible, meaning the tissues lost to damage will not be replaced through natural healing. However, what you can do is receive a durable restoration that protects the structure and also provides cosmetic support. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can provide treatment options for cavities and other problems that negatively impact you. With a lifelike composite resin material, we can actually place dental fillings that blend in with surrounding enamel and go unnoticed. This treatment approach and care with lifelike crowns can ensure that your appearance is not hurt by decay even when that decay forms in a more conspicuous area.

Restorative Dental Work Can Protect Your Tooth And Preserve Your Smile

Restorative dental treatments resolve problems with decay and physical trauma that affect our tooth structure. The longer it takes you to do something about a cavity, the more harm you will ultimately experience, but even one that is caught early will leave some irreversible damage. Your care will involve both the removal of decayed tissues to stop the spread of harm and the restoration of the tooth with a filling or crown. The one we use will be based on what state your tooth is in. A filling requires less preparatory work and lets you preserve more of the structure, while a crown provides protection when too much harm has occurred for a filling to be put in place.

Planning Treatment With A Dental Filling

It is important that the area of decay be fully treated so that you do not have to worry about lingering consequences from a cavity. After we provide this service, we will apply a composite resin material at the site of the problem. The application process leads to protection as the resin hardens, covering the vulnerable space. When that hardening completes, your tooth is kept safe against the accumulation of bacteria in the same area, and you have the functional protection that you require to prevent issues with biting and chewing.
