What if I Do Nothing?
Repairing teeth is about more than just restoring their appearance; don’t assume that it’s okay to leave a tooth alone just because no one else can see it when you smile. If the enamel has become cracked, the damage could get even worse if you don’t get a crown to protect the tooth. Furthermore, fractures can increase the chances of decay or infection because bacteria can enter the tooth through the crack and begin attacking the soft inner portion.
In order to repair a damaged tooth, we can place a special “cap” called a crown that can restore it to its original shape and size. Crowns are extremely versatile; they can hold a broken tooth together and protect the enamel from further injury, but they can also be used as a component for a dental bridge or implant meant to fill in the gaps in your smile. We can create crowns out of a ceramic that can be colored to blend in with the rest of the smile.
Nervous about how a metal filling will look in your mouth? Our dental office can fill in cavities using a tooth-colored blend of plastic resins and silica filters. The material mimics a natural tooth’s translucency and wear-resistance. You’ll be able to bite and chew normally again, and you won’t have to worry about the filling affecting your appearance. As another benefit, composite resin fillings don’t require any undercutting of the tooth’s structure; they bond directly to the enamel, making them a much more conservative option compared to metal fillings.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Have all your teeth been damaged at once due to a blow to the mouth? Have they all become worn down as a result of constant grinding and clenching at night? Are they all suffering the consequences of poor oral hygiene? No matter the reason, if your smile has suffered from extensive damage, we can rebuild it with a full mouth reconstruction. This process might involve the placement of crowns and fillings, but it can include other treatments as well; it mainly depends on your unique needs.
