Are you concerned that the minimal discomfort you have been feeling, could be due to an undiagnosed dental issue like a cavity? If so, you may already be having difficulty chewing comfortably. Over time, that minor toothache can worsen to the point of extensive pain, if unaddressed, that is. The good news is that modern dental restorations are made to feel comfortable and look natural, allowing you to do more important things than worry about your teeth, like enjoy your meals and smile confidently.
Don’t Ignore the Earliest Warnings of Dental Decay
When it comes to the smile, it’s important to pay attention to any changes that could be warning signs of dental decay. The sooner you seek treatment at signs of trouble, the more likely you are to be able to enjoy a minimally invasive restoration.
When cavities are caught and treated quickly with modern restorative dentistry, for instance, dental fillings can help to protect the teeth against further erosion, and also hide staining caused by the cavity. The filling also helps improve comfort, by eliminating exposure of the interior of the tooth to the bacteria that could cause pain.
Enjoy Improved Comfort and Confidence with a Modern Restoration
Plus, modern restorations can provide cosmetic benefits, too. Tooth-colored fillings, for instance, are made of a composite resin material that not only bonds well with teeth, it can be carefully crafted to look natural and sit nearly seamlessly within the smile. These fillings also conduct less heat than the metal amalgam fillings that were once most common, creating better comfort for most patients, particularly any with metal sensitivities.
