What If I Do Nothing?
Your natural teeth are protected by strong enamel; however, if the enamel becomes damaged through decay or an injury, the sensitive interior becomes exposed to harmful bacteria. Not only can this cause pain, but it can lead to more invasive infections. It’s safer for your smile and your health to repair broken or decayed teeth to protect you from problems in the future.
In addition, once your teeth are compromised, they may not be able to function as well as they did before, and they certainly don’t look as attractive. Luckily, we offer options that enable teeth to look and work as if nothing happened.
When an injury or infection has taken hold of most of the top of the tooth, a dental crown can be used to bring back a tooth’s strength, function, and beauty. When we place it on top of the weakened tooth, the dental crown protects the vulnerable interior and keeps bacteria from further damaging the tooth.
A small cavity shouldn’t need extensive repair to make the tooth whole again. With old-fashioned amalgam fillings, extra tooth structure had to be removed, but composite resin fillings bond directly to the tooth, allowing more enamel to be preserved. Plus, unlike metal fillings, this composite material can easily be colored to match the surrounding enamel shade, making it fit in perfectly with the natural tooth. As a result, no one will be able to tell that a cavity was ever there to begin with.
