Worried that you could be in need of restorative dental treatment? If so, what is causing you the most concern? Is it what your dental restoration will look like once completed, or what it will feel like? Many people, especially those who haven’t had restorative work completed in a long time, worry about how they will feel following treatment. They may even be envisioning large metal crowns or fillings that will be easily spotted. Fortunately, modern dental restorations are designed to both look and feel natural, allowing patients to enjoy healthy and beautiful smiles after their restorative work has been completed.
Sensitivity and Discomfort Are Common Signs of Dental Troubles
If you are experiencing dental sensitivity, much less pain, don’t delay a trip to the dentist. Prompt restorative treatment can help to reduce the risk of developing a painful tooth infection, the kind that might require root canal therapy or even extraction. When issues are caught and treated early, minimally invasive treatment is usually sufficient for restoring comfort and protecting damaged teeth.
Enjoy Restored Comfort with a Modern Restoration
Modern restorative options mean you can get back to enjoying meals, and smiling confidently, after treatment. For instance, instead of metal dental fillings dentists now regularly recommend composite resin fillings. This material looks natural, and conducts less heat than metal, making it more comfortable for many patients, particularly those who suffer from metal sensitivities or allergies.
Porcelain crowns are another seamless option, and one that provides long-lasting protection. That’s because dental-grade porcelain is strong and also stain resistant, making it an excellent cosmetic and functional choice!
