Are you embarrassed by an outdated dental restoration, or worse, frustrated by the discomfort that is being caused by an old metal filling or crown? Have you recently noticed heightened sensitivity when trying to enjoy your favorite hot beverage? Or, do you wince in pain when trying to enjoy a scoop of your favorite ice cream? Whether you are ready to update an outdated restoration, or concerned you may need restorative dental treatment for a new dental problem, the good news is that there are a number of nearly seamless smile solutions that can help you to smile confidently once again!
Are You Experiencing Dental Discomfort or Other Symptoms?
If you are struggling with discomfort, when trying to enjoy a meal or even a drink, it could be due to a dental cavity. Cavities are the most common dental issue for adults, and unfortunately children as well.
Fortunately, for patients that are diagnosed with dental cavities, dentists can frequently address the decay with dental fillings. These can be completed quickly, and offer esthetic benefits as well, since they can be made of a tooth-colored composite resin and sculpted to match surrounding teeth.
Do You Want to Improve the Look or Feel of Your Restoration?
For existing restorations, if you have grown embarrassed by the look of the filling or crown, or are unhappy with the feel of it, a tooth-colored filling or porcelain crown can make for a more seamless update.
Crowns, in particular, make great ways to update the smile. Porcelain crowns are designed to look natural, and feel comfortable.
