Were you involved in an injury or accident, recently? Did you suffer trauma to your smile? If so, have you delayed visiting the dentist because you can’t see or feel any problems? Have you actually ignored several troubling dental symptoms over the years, because of fear what restorative treatment might do to the look of your smile? While it might be tempting to ignore symptoms of dental problems, in hopes that the issues will simply go away on their own, or lessen with time, this is very unlikely given that teeth lack the ability to repair themselves in the effective way the skin, and other parts of the body, generally can. That is precisely why restorative dentistry is so necessary, and why prompt treatment can be extremely beneficial to the smile. Fortunately, modern restorations can be beautiful as well as comfortable, so there really is no need to fear restorative dentistry. In fact, it could actually help you smile more comfortably and confidently!
Suffering from a Chip, Crack or Cavity?
Do you suspect that you could be struggling with a cavity, or have you even noticed a chip, crack or other dental problem? If so, these are clear indicators that you need to schedule a dental visit. Cavities, for instance, frequently require dental fillings to help halt the acidic erosion, and to restore the smile’s comfort. These can be made to look natural and bond tightly with teeth, for great protection. That said, for severe cavities, but also chips, cracks, and other damage, a crown is often the best solution. That is because dental crowns are made of sturdy materials, which are crafted to withstand the pressure that is created during chewing. In fact, porcelain crowns are designed to match teeth nearly seamlessly, allowing for confidence as one smiles, as well as comfort while he or she speaks and chews.
