Do You Need a Modern Dental Restoration?

Have you postponed a visit to the dentist, because you are worried about how your smile will look or feel following restoration. If it has been several years since you last received restorative dentistry, you could be concerned that you will end up with a smile filled with metal, or even discomfort associated with metal fillings and crowns that conduct high levels of heat. The good news is that

modern restorations are designed to be both comfortable and natural-looking, allowing for confidence when smiling and comfort when chewing. So, if you suspect your smile could be in need of dental treatment, there’s no reason to fear. Restoration could actually help improve your smile functionally and cosmetically.

What Can a Modern Restoration Do?

Quick detection of problems, either through regular checkups or restorative consultations, help to prevent problems from worsening over time, to the point of requiring extensive treatment.

If your smile is decayed due to a cavity, a simple filling is usually sufficient for preventing further erosion and pain. Modern fillings are made from a composite resin material that bonds tightly with the teeth, and also helps to create a great barrier against further exposure to bacteria. These tooth-colored fillings are also sculpted to look natural, allowing for confidence when smiling.

Modern crowns can be made from a number of materials, including metal and zirconia, but many patients choose porcelain because of its natural appearance and comfort. Porcelain crowns are so similar to natural teeth that they can be cared for just as the teeth are, with daily brushing and flossing, and with persistent care they can last more than a decade.
