Restorative dentistry is called for when an oral health issue has to be addressed through professional treatment. This work is often done to address problems with dental decay, though it can also be needed if a tooth has experienced a physical injury. While the goal of treatment is to restore your oral health, this work can actually have benefits for your smile. A tooth that has become infected by decay can see unwelcome changes in its color, while a physical injury can negatively change a tooth’s shape and general appearance. At our Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office, we can recommend restorative treatment with a tooth filling or crown that closely matches the look of your healthy enamel so that your smile is preserved.
A Serious Cavity Can Cause Real Problems For Your Smile
A cavity that is not treated in time will cause a tooth to become infected. This occurs when bacteria finally work their way through your enamel and dentin, and begin to attack the tissues housed in that tooth’s pulp. In addition to being painful, an infection can cause a change in your tooth’s color, and it may lead to unsightly swelling. Until treatment is provided, this problem will grow increasingly serious, and it can ultimately lead to you losing your tooth!
Scheduling Restorative Work For A Problem Tooth
If you have a tooth that shows signs of infection, or if you are dealing with an injury that leaves a tooth chipped or cracked, we can bring you in for treatment to address the matter properly. For a serious tooth problem, it may be necessary to perform root canal therapy. Once this procedure is complete, we can make sure that your tooth is completely restored by placing a crown over it. A custom dental crown made to imitate the look of your healthy enamel can give you back your confidence in your smile while also giving you functional support. That means that in addition to improving how you look, your crown can give you a renewed sense of confidence in your bite!
We Can Restore Your Smile If You Have Lost A Tooth
Few oral health problems affect your dental function and appearance like tooth loss. If you have already lost a tooth, or if an unhealthy tooth has to be extracted, we can work to restore your smile with a custom prosthetic appliance. Our treatment approaches include work with dental implants. Implants provide lasting support for restorations, making them more comfortable throughout the day as well as effective at handling bite pressure.
