Treatment should happen as soon as possible when you have a cavity. By putting off restorative dental work, you allow that cavity time to keep growing, which means you will lose more of your healthy tooth structure and make it more likely an infection will form before your treatment. One reason people delay treatment is because they worry about what cavity treatment will involve, and how it might affect the way they look. At our Irving, TX dentist’s office, we are ready to restore a tooth affected by decay with a lifelike dental filling or dental crown. Because we use restorations that imitate healthy tooth structure, we can protect your oral health while also ensuring you remain confident in your smile!

Why Cavity Treatment Includes The Placement Of A Restoration

Before your treatment for tooth decay is complete, your dentist will place either a dental filling or dental crown on it to protect it. This is a required part of treatment because cavities cause permanent damage. Without the support of your restoration, you would be at risk for developing new problems while also having a harder time biting and chewing! It can be unpleasant to learn that you need a permanent restoration, particularly when the cavity being treated is in an area that is hard to hide. Fortunately, there are restorations available that can match the color and general look of healthy enamel!

We Provide Restorations That Imitate Healthy Enamel

When placing a dental filling or dental crown, we can take care to work on your tooth structure without changing its appearance. A filling or crown that is being placed on your tooth can blend in well enough to avoid detection, so you will not lose confidence in the way you look after restorative dental work is done. Whether you need a filling, a partial dental crown, or a full crown, we can discuss the benefits of treatment using restorations that imitate your enamel. In addition to providing cosmetic support, these restorations can still ensure you are able to bite and chew without problems.

Our Same-Day Crowns Are Convenient And Attractive

At many other dental practices, at least two appointments must be scheduled when plans are made to place a dental crown. This is because these other offices rely on third party labs to make personalized restorations for their patients. Our office has CEREC technology on hand, allowing us to digitally measure a tooth, design a restoration using those measurements, and have a dental crown ready to place on the tooth in just one appointment!
