Is It Time To Have An Old Filling Or Crown Replaced?

Dental restorations provide dependable support for vulnerable teeth, and they can make sure you have the necessary protection for many years. Unfortunately, there is no shortage of pressure placed on teeth from biting and chewing. Over time, a dental filling or dental crown may start to wear down. This degradation can be sped up if you practice poor dental habits, or if you tend to grind your teeth, placing extra pressure on your restoration. Your dentist can supply you with a new filling or crown, to replace one that is no longer effectively supporting you. Modern restorations offer great support, and they can blend in with your smile.

How Can I Tell If My Restoration Needs To Be Replaced?

If you feel that you have a filling or crown that has become loose, or one that you no longer trust to handle biting and chewing pressures, it may be time to seek a replacement. Any restoration you have should allow you to practice normal dental function. With that said, a secure restoration is also responsible for keeping a vulnerable tooth free from an infection risk. Leaving the problem unaddressed, and simply working around your filling or crown when you eat, will not put a stop to your potential troubles.

Modern Dental Restorations Can Protect Your Tooth While Also Looking Great

Dental fillings made from composite resin are able to blend in with your enamel, and they can actually bond directly to your teeth, for an amazing degree of support. If you need to replace earlier dental work with a new crown, you can have that restoration in less time thanks to E4D technology, which can produce your crown in just one appointment!
