Keeping up with daily smile care efforts will help you avoid the permanent damage that a cavity can cause. Between daily brushing and flossing, smart dieting, and regular preventive dental care, many patients are able to keep their teeth safe from this harm. Unfortunately, cavities are still common threats, and you may find yourself in need of treatment at least one time in your life. At our Prairie Village, KS dental practice, we can provide restorative dental work that addresses your oral health needs, but also allows you to maintain your appearance. Our modern dental fillings are capable of matching the look of your enamel, and they bond directly to your tooth structure to provide incredible support.
A Modern Dental Filling Can Match Your Tooth Structure
If you have received a metal filling in the past, or if you have observed someone else’s restoration, you can be well aware of how conspicuous these restorations can be. At our office, we use a composite resin material to restore teeth with decay issues. This substance looks like healthy tooth enamel, so it will not attract unwanted attention. Its biocompatible nature offers an added benefit – your filling can bond directly to your tooth structure, which can ensure that it stays in place.
Having Your Tooth Restored
Restorative dental work starts with an effort to remove your cavity, and ensure your tooth is no longer in danger for worsening damage. Once this is done, it will be restored with a filling or crown, depending on how much support is called for. Dental fillings are used for smaller cavities that pose less of a threat to your tooth structure. If your cavity grew too large to make a filling appropriate, a dental crown will be put over the tooth to make sure it is not at risk for future problems. At regular dental exams, your dentist can identify cavity troubles early, so you can avoid troubles with more advanced decay.
Preventing Future Cavities
In addition to taking care of any cavities you might have, our practice can work with you to keep your teeth safe against harm in the future! Every routine dental appointment you attend provides a cleaning, and a careful evaluation. The goal with these efforts is to keep you informed about your smile, and to make sure that you have the kind of preventive support that keeps plaque and tartar from doing harm to your oral health.
