Quiz: What Will My Cavity Treatment Involve?


routine dental exam that you have a cavity that needs to be treated, or if you suspect something is wrong because of a persistent toothache, you may wonder what to expect from your Columbia, TN dentist. Different cavity treatments will call for different approaches to care. With that said, you can count on a modern care in an environment that is calming and supportive, no matter how involved your restorative dental treatment might be. In addition to providing you with the treatment you need to fully return your tooth to good health, your dentist will provide you with a dental filling or dental crown that fits in with your smile.

Questions:

True Or False: Every cavity, no matter how small it might be, makes it necessary to place a crown on your tooth.

True Or False: Your dentist has to remove all infected tissue from a tooth to put a stop to your cavity.

True Or False: You can receive a filling or crown made from modern materials that mimic the appearance of dental enamel.

Answers:

False! When a dental filling is capable of offering support to your tooth, your dentist will use this type of restoration. Instead of completely covering your tooth above the gum line, as a dental crown would, a filling will only take up the space where your cavity was removed.

True! To stop a cavity’s spread, your dentist will remove all decayed tissue from your tooth. Because this damage is permanent, a restoration must be placed.

True! Dental fillings are made from a biocompatible composite resin material that bonds with your tooth. Modern dental crowns produced via CEREC technology are made from a life-like dental ceramic. CEREC technology also makes it possible to have your dental crown ready in just one appointment!
