Fortunately, there are a number of wonderful ways a restorative dentist can help treat these and other dental issues, leaving you with a beautiful smile that functions as it should. So if you’re concerned that you may require restorative treatment, don’t worry. Instead talk to your dentist about the many seamless smile solutions now available!

Pay Attention to Changes In Your Smile

The first thing you should do, when trying to determine if restorative dentistry is necessary, is pay close attention to changes in your smile, both those that are visible and those that have affected your dental comfort.

Many people try to dismiss tooth sensitivity, irritated and even bleeding gums, and changes in the teeth’s color, believing them to be normal. However, while these issues may be common, it does not mean they indicate that a smile is healthy.

On the contrary, changes in sensitivity are common warning signs of a cavity, bleeding gums a symptom of gingivitis (the first stage of gum disease), and changes in the teeth’s color could indicate a cavity or intrinsic damage as the result of a trauma to the mouth.

If you notice these or other changes in your smile, it is bets to schedule a dental appointment. This is particularly important if it has been more than six months since your last dental checkup!
