Hopefully, your recent visits to the dentist’s office did not include restorative dental work of any kind. After all, these services are only provided when patients have active oral health issues that have to be addressed. If you do find yourself with dental trouble, you should know that your Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office can provide services that fully resolve problems without changing the way a patient looks. We can take care of you if you simply need a filling for a recently-formed cavity, or if you require more involved services for problems with dental injuries or advanced cavity issues.
When Is It Necessary To Arrange Restorative Treatment?
It will not be necessary to undergo restorative treatment unless you have a cavity or physical problem with a tooth. Many patients will go to repeated dental exams without being told that they need additional services. With that said, when a problem is discovered, it should be promptly addressed. If that care is not provided, your tooth’s health will continue to worsen. This will lead to problems that call for more involved treatment. Our practice can work with you to make sure that every procedure is minimally invasive, and to see to it that you receive a restoration that preserves your appearance as well as your ability to bite, chew, and speak comfortably.
Restorative Treatments That Call For Dental Fillings
A cavity can be caught early, limiting the damage it does to your enamel, but even this small amount of harm will have to be addressed with a restoration of some kind. A patient with less decay can often have work done with a dental filling, which only covers the space where the enamel became damaged. A composite filling that we place can match the appearance of your tooth structure, and it will become permanently bonded to the surrounding enamel to provide a remarkable kind of stability. Because we do not have to create a custom restoration to protect your tooth, this is work that we can typically finish in just one appointment.
Using A Dental Crown To Protect A Tooth After Cavity Treatment Or Injury
Dental crowns provide more coverage for teeth that are damaged or hurt by decay. Because of this, they call for more preparatory work, and the need to custom-make them to ensure they fit calls for two appointments to complete treatment. The good news is that dental crowns provide an important degree of support, and can give us the ability to save a tooth that is badly hurt and vulnerable to being lost.
