Has a cavity formed since your last dental appointment? If it has, our Redmond, OR dentist’s office is prepared to help you by performing the appropriate restorative dental work. Cavity treatment should not be delayed. When it is, a tooth experiences more damage from spreading decay, which means more permanent damage to your enamel. In order to deal with the harm that has already occurred, it is necessary to place a permanent restoration. It is often possible to care for a tooth with a custom dental filling. Patients who come to us for cavity treatment receive dental fillings that are made to match the look of healthy tooth enamel. This choice of material ensures we can protect your tooth while also preserving the way you look!
Tooth Fillings Have An Important Job To Do
It is important that your dental filling is stable and strong enough to stay in place and support your tooth after cavity treatment. Without that protection, you are vulnerable to an infection or more physical harm. A filling will remain in the space where a cavity formed. When it is present, it will keep the space where decayed tissues were removed healthy. It will also provide structural support, which means you should not have issues biting and chewing after cavity treatment!
Receiving Your Custom Dental Filling
A dental filling is placed after your tooth’s cavity is removed, and the space where it formed is effectively cleaned. Lifelike fillings are administered in the site of the cavity. Once applied, the substance will harden to close the opening that has formed. We can make sure that in addition to staying secure, the material matches your natural tooth color and stays undetected.
We Can Also Take Care Of Advanced Cavities With Custom Crowns
If a tooth is damaged by a larger cavity or physical injury, a filling may not do enough to preserve your oral health. In a situation like this, we will rely on a dental crown instead of a filling. This larger restoration protects a tooth by surrounding it; more preparatory work is needed, but this treatment can keep the tooth safe after more serious damage occurs. Crowns at our practice can be placed in just one visit, making treatment convenient even for those with advanced cavities!
