In situations where a patient requires restorative dental work, our Columbia, TN dentist's office will tend to trouble while focusing on preserving a person's appearance and oral health. When your tooth needs more than just a dental filling, we can supply a custom crown to provide coverage and bite support. These restorations are often used during cavity treatments, but they can also serve you well if you need work done for a dental injury. With that said, some issues with damaged or misshapen teeth can be treated with more conservative cosmetic procedures.
Bring Concerns About An Unhealthy Or Vulnerable Tooth To Your Dentist
If you think that something may be wrong with your oral health because of a tooth that is damaged, misshapen, sensitive, or in pain, you should let your dentist know. If you put off treatment when you suspect that something is wrong, the problem can grow worse. Ignoring a possible infection can lead to a harmful spread of bacteria, and may leave the tooth in such poor condition that it must be extracted to restore your oral health.
Receiving A Custom Dental Crown
We take care to place custom dental crowns that are capable of supplying protection and support for your tooth, and for your dental function, for many years. The process of restoring a tooth with a crown can take two appointments. During your first visit, we can take the necessary steps to prepare your tooth for treatment and gather measurements to use for the creation of your appliance. When you return, you can have your custom crown permanently secured. This process can take place after advanced cavity treatment, or so that you can more comfortably bite and chew with a flawed tooth.
Could You Move Forward With Cosmetic Work To Restore A Tooth?
When you have a problem with physical damage, or when a tooth is a poor fit for your smile due to its shape and size, we may be able to help with a more conservative cosmetic procedure. Treatment with porcelain veneers can brighten teeth, hide any chips or cracks in their structure, and even make positive changes to their shape and size so that your smile is more attractive. With veneers, it is only necessary to modify the front surfaces of teeth, which reduces the amount of required preparatory work.
