Why Dental Restorations Are Necessary
You can never predict when an accident will happen. Whether it is a car wreck, sports injury, playing with the kids, or falling at work – teeth are often the victim of daily accidents. When this happens it is important to fix the tooth right away before infection sets in and makes the tooth and surrounding tissue painful.
When A Tooth Becomes Infected
Restorations are also needed after a tooth becomes infected. When a patient gets a cavity, or a root canal is necessary, Dr. Beecroft can restore it so that the tooth can continue to function without needing to be removed. This is far better for your overall oral health since keeping your natural teeth is the best option in the long run.
Types Of Restorations
At First Class Dental Care we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all-solution, but offer customized treatment plans based on the needs of each patient. This means the restoration that works for your spouse is not necessarily the treatment we will recommend for you.
At First Class Dental Care we use tooth-colored fillings as a way to restore teeth that have had cavities. Once the decayed area of the tooth has been removed a filling is necessary to replace the missing enamel. Traditionally, this was done using silver amalgam but now we can complete dental restorations using materials that look natural so that when you smile, no one can tell that you had cavities. Read on to see how long fillings last.
