In the event that you need cavity treatment, it can be reassuring to know that your Omaha, NE dentist is prepared to fully restore your smile. We can provide both dental fillings and dental crowns to make sure you have the right support. A filling is your more conservative treatment option, as it only affects the limited area where decay has become a problem. With a dental crown, we can completely cover your tooth to provide lasting bite support as well as a defense against future infections. Both options can lead to coverage without changing your smile. Because we have CEREC technology, we can have your attractive dental crown ready in just one appointment!
What Does It Take To Fully Restore A Tooth Affected By Decay?
The type of care that you receive after a cavity is treated will depend on how much harm that cavity did to your tooth. When we can, we can provide a more conservative treatment with a filling that only covers the area where decayed tissues had to be treated. Once applied, the resin material we use will adhere to the surrounding enamel. A custom crown that we provide at our practice can match your tooth structure as well. We have the technology we need to place crowns that we produce in the office, which can make care more convenient and reduce the time that it takes to complete.
Receiving A Lifelike Dental Filling To Protect Your Smile
A lifelike dental filling is put in place after a cavity is taken care of by your dentist. Once the decayed tissues are removed, we can apply the composite resin material we use to protect teeth. This substance is a good cosmetic match for your smile, and it can bond directly to the tooth structure so that you have lasting protection.
Planning Treatment With Custom Dental Crowns
If you have a larger cavity, or if you have one that demands root canal therapy, you can receive a dental crown. With CEREC technology, we have the means to digitally measure teeth, create digital designs of restorations, and produce them with in-office milling machines. Because these are made from ceramic, we can supply a treatment that preserves your smile as it protects your oral health.
