When you have an aching tooth, or if one sustains damage, then you need a restoration. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing a tooth to severe decay or infection! Instead, we could save the tooth with a respiration that looks natural and blends with the smile. In today’s blog, your Riverside, CA, dental practice talks about our lifelike dental restorations.
When You Need a Restoration
Our teeth are coated in tooth enamel, the hardest substance in the human body. This protective layer keeps harmful bacteria at bay and limits the risk of damage to the teeth. But when the enamel becomes compromised, this could increase the risk of tooth decay and dental infection, even threatening tooth stability. A cavity could endanger the tooth, as could an infected, worn-down, or damaged tooth. When you damage a tooth, see us right away for an emergency visit. If you have persistent pain in a tooth, schedule an appointment to see if you have a cavity that needs attention. Our team can place restorations that not only safeguards the tooth and restores lost structure, but that offers a lifelike appearance as well.
A dental filling is used to treat tooth decay, and placement only takes one visit. Our team will administer a local numbing agent to the tooth and then remove decay. We clean the tooth and apply the prepared filling material, a metal-free composite resin that we color match to blend with the tooth. This is applied in several layers and the tooth is sculpted and molded as we cure the composite resin beneath a light. The final step is to polish the tooth. The procedure only takes one visit, and can prevent infection from occurring, while also offering a lifelike appearance.
A dental crown is a restoration that covers the visible portion of a tooth, and can handle more severe cases of tooth decay, or even completes a root canal for an infected tooth. We could use them to address damaged teeth or improve bite balance too. They even aid in tooth replacement by securing a bridge in place and completing a single tooth dental implant. Each one is custom-made from materials like ceramic or zirconia, which we can color match to blend with your smile!
