Have you noticed sensitivity or even discomfort, lately, when trying to enjoy a meal or even a beverage? Were you recently involved in an accident that left one or several of your teeth chipped, cracked, or even missing? Did your last visit to the dentist involve the diagnosis of a cavity or even an infection? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your smile is likely in need of restorative dentistry. Fortunately, what you may not realize is that a dentist can help improve the feel, function and even the look of your smile. So if you suspect there is a dental problem affecting your oral health, or if you have already been told you need restorative treatment, now is a great time to talk with your dentist about the effective and even beautiful ways that treatment could help your smile!
Dental Cavities Are Incredibly Common; Fortunately Fillings Can Help!
Dental cavities caused by acidic erosion that is the result of bacteria buildup, are incredibly common. Some studies indicate that as many as 90 percent of adults will deal with dental decay! Fortunately, when a cavity is detected early, minimally invasive restorative treatment is often sufficient for eliminating any discomfort when chewing, and also protecting the tooth against infection or worsening wear.
Perhaps best of all, modern dental fillings can be made of a composite resin material that is designed to closely match a patient’s natural teeth, that way you can smile both comfortably and confidently after restorative treatment.
