Are you worried that the discomfort you’ve been experiencing, particularly during meals, could be due to an undiagnosed dental issue, like a cavity? If so, what has you most concerned? Is it fear that treatment will be uncomfortable, or that the restoration will be easily spotted, and therefore embarrassing. In either case, there is great news. Modern dental restorations, like fillings and crowns, are designed to feel and look natural. So if you want to enjoy renewed comfort, as well as confidence in your smile, then you should talk to your dentist about how restorative dentistry could be precisely what your smile needs.
Why Is Restoration So Important?
Restorative dentistry is used in order to prevent dental issues from worsening over time, and particularly with wear. Restorative treatment is crucial to protecting oral health when a cavity or other issue has developed, because the teeth are naturally strong. Yet they are not able to regenerate the way some other parts of the body can. In other words, unlike the skin which can heal itself from minor injuries, restorative dentistry is required when the teeth have become damaged.
What Restoration Is Right for You?
Fortunately, while restorations were once made of metal, they can now be made of more natural-looking and often more comfortable materials. Fillings and dental crowns are two minimally invasive forms of restoration that can help to protect decayed or otherwise fragile teeth against infection and worsening oral health threats.
Dental fillings can be made of a composite resin material that bonds tightly with the teeth, helping to create a seal against bacteria exposure, and dental crowns can be made of porcelain, carefully crafted to look natural.
