Are you embarrassed by visible damage to one or several of your teeth? Worse, have you spent much of 2016 frustrated by sensitivity or discomfort, caused by a dental problem, like a cavity or trauma? There are a number of reasons people might require restorative dentistry. Yet many postpone dental visits for fear of how treatment will feel, or what their smiles will look like following the restoration. Fortunately, modern restorative dentistry provides a number of comfortable and confidence-inducing ways to address dental problems. So if you want to spend 2017 enjoying great oral health, and a beautiful smile, schedule a consultation to find out how restorative treatment could help!
Choose a Modern Restoration
One way to improve your confidence is by choosing a restoration that is both effective protection against worsening dental problems, and also esthetically pleasing. For instance, while fillings were once primarily made from metal amalgam, they can now be made of a more natural-looking composite resin, which is actually crafted by the dentist to blend nearly seamlessly within the smile.
Even better, this material conducts less heat and requires less space than metal, allowing for increased confidence and more preservation of the healthy portions of a tooth.
For more extensive problems, like chips or cracks, which can easily worsen with the wear of chewing, the dentist may recommend a porcelain dental crown. Fortunately these too now come in natural-looking materials, like dental porcelain, which is actually incredibly similar to natural tooth enamel. Because of this, in fact, porcelain crowns can be cared for the same way natural teeth can, allowing for increased convenience along with the esthetic benefits that come with choosing a beautiful restoration.
