Making Sure Your Tooth Has Enough Protection After A Cavity

Our teeth suffer permanent damage from cavities. When decay becomes serious enough for you to need dental work to repair the problem, your tooth will need to receive the appropriate restoration. Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office is prepared to offer important support, while also making sure the look of your smile does not become flawed because of a conspicuous filling or crown. You can look forward to receiving a modern, discreet dental filling that is affixed directly to your enamel after a cavity procedure, or a custom dental crown. In addition to providing attractive restorations, your dentist can also offer greater convenience, as our practice can provide crowns that are ready in just one appointment!

Why Is Support After A Cavity So Important?

While your dental enamel can recover from minor amounts of decay, the formation of a cavity leads to more damage than your tooth can naturally repair on its own. With a restoration, you protect your tooth against future infections by covering up an area exposed by that damage. You also enjoy more support for your tooth, so your bite function is not changed.

Providing The Right Restoration To Address Tooth Decay

The right solution to your dental troubles will depend on how serious your cavity has become. If your cavity is caught during a regular exam, and it is not yet serious enough to cause you discomfort, a dental filling can be supportive enough to fully address your needs. Unfortunately, this is not always the approach that can be taken. If too much time passes without treatment for decay, your dentist can find it necessary to perform a root canal treatment to stop an infection. Once this is done, a dental crown can be created and placed over your tooth.

Modern Restorations Can Be Surprisingly Convenient, And Attractive!

Modern dental fillings and dental crowns offer exciting benefits for patients – when placed, they can avoid detection, and may even improve the look of a tooth. A lifelike dental crown can imitate a tooth, while also taking its biting and chewing pressures. For added convenience, our practice uses CEREC technology to produce custom ceramic crowns that are ready to be placed in one day! This means you are not stuck waiting on a lab to create your restoration.
