When you experience a dental emergency, what should you expect from your dentist’s office? One thing you should look for is prompt attention and care. Your dentist can address the situation, and help you deal with active discomfort. They can also survey the harm you have suffered, and take action to prevent complications. Of course, many concerns around dental emergencies can focus on the effect on your appearance. Will your dentist be able to restore your appearance, or just your health? You can be glad to know that restorative dental work after an emergency can have the effect of helping you recover your smile. If you need to do something about milder damages that do not demand restorative work, cosmetic dental work can be beneficial to you.
Restorative Care That Also Addresses Issues With Your Appearance
Dental injuries will often require the placement of dental crowns, as your injured teeth may be in need of support and protection, particularly if they are chipped or cracked. The CEREC restorations that your dentist can provide will be ready in the course of a single appointment, so you are not left waiting for that protection. Because CEREC technology produces ceramic crowns, your smile will also benefit, as these crowns can look like natural teeth, and avoid unwanted attention.
What Happens If An Injury Causes Me To Lose Teeth?
Unfortunately, some dental injuries will leave teeth beyond the point of saving, even if prompt attention is given to your smile. While your dentist may not be able to save your teeth after an emergency event, they can provide life-like prosthetics that will help you preserve your smile. With dental implants to hold a prosthetic restoration in place, you can enjoy a level of stability that makes biting, chewing, and talking more comfortable. Implants are also often recommended because you will be able to keep up with the health of your jawbone – deterioration of the bone will take place after tooth loss without implant support.
