When was the last time you sat down and enjoyed a nice and juicy steak, or even a crisp, fresh apple for that matter? If you have been avoiding some of your favorite foods because of dental discomfort, it’s time you put an end to that sensitivity. Restorative treatment could likely help to improve your smile’s comfort, and allow you to get back to enjoying all your favorite foods, without pesky sensitivity getting in the way. So why keep postponing a restorative dental appointment that could actually help improve your smile?
Enjoy Improved Comfort
One of the many benefits of modern dental restorations is that most are designed with both comfort and cosmetic confidence in mind. For instance, a tooth-colored dental filling can help to prevent further erosion and even infection, after a cavity has developed. These fillings are also made of a composite resin material, which bonds tightly with teeth creating a great seal against bacteria.
Dental crowns can also be made to improve comfort and the overall appearance of the smile. Crowns can be made of metal, but many dentists recommend porcelain crowns, instead. That is because they conduct less heat than metal, making them more comfortable for many patients. They are also more natural looking.
Confidence Can Be Restored Too
If you do want to enjoy confidence when smiling, and comfort when chewing, then talk to your dentist about these nearly seamless restorative options. They can be used to protect teeth that have become chipped, cracked, or otherwise impacted by trauma or decay. Porcelain crowns can even be used as part of a dental prostheses to help address tooth loss.
