At our Shrewsbury, MA dental practice, we are proud of the work we do to help our patients avoid oral health troubles like gum disease and tooth decay. Through careful evaluations and detailed teeth cleanings, we can stop oral bacteria from creating problems that call for restorative dental work. If you do find yourself in need of treatment, our practice can make sure the matter is fully dealt with, and we can supply you with a lifelike filling or crown that blends in with your smile. Because we are able to craft and place attractive, tooth-colored restorations, we can see to it that your oral health work does not have a negative effect on your appearance!
Modern Restorations Can Imitate Healthy Tooth Enamel
The dental fillings and dental crowns that our practice provides to patients are capable of imitating your tooth structure, so you do not have to worry that your recent work will bring unwanted attention. Once placed, a filling or crown can blend in well enough to effectively remain hidden. Fortunately, these materials are still strong enough to provide important functional support, so you can continue biting and chewing with a restored tooth.
What Can I Expect During My Restorative Treatment?
The first step in treating a cavity requires the complete removal of decay. If your cavity is severe enough that your tooth has become infected, this step can call for a root canal procedure. Once the procedure is completed, your dentist will move forward with placing your restoration. For larger cavities, it can be necessary to craft a dental crown to completely cover a tooth. Our E4D technology gives us everything we need to have your crown designed, produced, and put on your tooth in just a single appointment, meaning you can avoid a delay in treatment that other practices may require. If your tooth can be restored with a dental filling, we use a tooth-colored resin material that can bond with your enamel, and “fill” the space left by decay.
We Can Also Help You Avoid Future Dental Troubles!
Our practice is here to do more than just treat cavities! If you schedule routine dental care with us, we can provide you with regular evaluations and dental cleanings that protect you from decay. These visits also allow us to look for problems with gingivitis, or talk to you about problems with teeth grinding that may be hurting your teeth.
