Responding To Cavities With Lifelike Fillings

There are different problems that can affect a person’s smile, and they can require different kinds of care. Cavities may be one of the most commonly known oral health threats, but that familiarity should not make you feel unafraid of one’s formation. After all, the decay that occurs when a cavity forms is permanent. To address this irreversible damage to your tooth structure, our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can provide a durable, lifelike dental filling. Fillings are a conservative approach to restorative care, as they provide the protection that you need while leaving the surrounding healthy tooth structure intact. To provide discreet fillings for patients of our practice, we use a composite resin material that can both bond to your enamel and match its look.

Can A Lifelike Filling Provide The Protection That Your Tooth Needs?

Dental fillings are often capable of protecting teeth that are in need of treatment because of dental decay. The restorative procedure that we move forward with will be based on the state of your tooth at the time you are evaluated. It is possible for there to be so much damage that you need to have a dental crown put in place. However, when you are consistent about dental exams, you are more likely to have a problem found in time to be eligible for care with a filling. Because your routine visits also help to protect your smile, they lower your risk for having any problems that require restorative treatment!

Placing Your Custom Restoration

After your dentist confirms that you only require a dental filling to restore your tooth, we can move forward with care. The infected area will be treated, and decayed material will be carefully removed. After the area is properly tended to, we can safely apply the filling. The resin substance will harden and bond to your enamel after being applied in a liquid form. When putting a filling in place, we take care to apply it carefully so that it does not appear out of place or feel intrusive.

What We Can Do For You If A Filling Does Not Provide Enough Support

In the event that you are not a good candidate for treatment with a dental filling, you can receive the support you need from a dental crown. We can make the process of receiving a crown easier and shorter with our in-office technology, as we have everything we need to design, create, and place the restoration in just one appointment!
