Treating Tooth Decay Without Causing Cosmetic Changes

If you have to arrange treatment for tooth decay, will you have to accept that your smile is going to change? Many people worry that a dental filling or dental crown in the wrong space will negatively affect the way they look. What you should know is that our practice is able to provide restorations that actually imitate healthy tooth structure. As a result, you can have a tooth treated for decay without seeing its appearance change! Our Redmond, OR dentist’s office relies on dental fillings and dental crowns that imitate enamel while providing long-term protection for teeth. Because we use CEREC technology to produce same day crowns, we can actually have your work done in less time, too, even if you are dealing with an advanced cavity.

A Lifelike Dental Restoration Can Protect A Tooth Without Changing The Way It Looks

It is necessary to place a dental filling or dental crown on a tooth when a cavity has formed. This is required because the damage from decay will be permanent, even if the cavity was caught in its early stages. Metal restorations can do a good job keeping teeth safe, but they can stand out when you smile and speak, and that can make people feel self-conscious about the way they look after treatment. After placing a custom restoration that imitates healthy enamel, we can take care of your tooth while also making sure that you remain comfortable with the way you look.

What Type Of Restoration Will You Need?

The approach we take to caring for your cavity will vary depending on how severe that cavity is at the time of treatment. If the problem is promptly addressed, we will be able to care for the tooth with a custom, tooth-colored filling. This restoration will bond directly to your tooth while also matching the way it looks. For cavities that are more serious, we will have to use dental crowns. Crowns are necessary when root canal therapy is performed, or when a cavity is simply too large to be addressed with only a filling.

Enjoy The Convenience Of Same Day Crowns

With the technology we utilize at our office to create dental crowns, we can address advanced tooth decay in less time than other practices may need. CEREC dental crowns are created in our office – the process of creating one will see us produce a lifelike restoration after digitally measuring your tooth and designing your crown. Once in place, your lifelike CEREC crown can provide support that allows you to bite, chew, and speak without discomfort.
