Sometimes, despite your best efforts, cavities just happen. Whether or not you are experiencing pain or discomfort from a cavity, it is extremely important to get your cavity resolved as soon as possible. Cavities (aka tooth decay) never go away on their own. If left untreated, a cavity can lead to further tooth decay and gum disease, and it can eventually cause you to lose one or more of your teeth!
Happily, our experienced dentists in Westbrook, CT, are adept at using dental fillings to resolve your cavity comfortably. A dental filling is a composite resin that our dentist places in your tooth after cleaning out any decay. The filling strengthens your tooth and stops new bacteria from entering it. With fillings from Westbrook Dental, you can say goodbye to cavity pain and say hello to healthy teeth!
When a dental filling isn’t sufficient to repair a tooth damaged by decay or injury, your Westbrook dentist may recommend a crown to restore your tooth’s functionality. A dental crown, as the name suggests, covers the top of your tooth, increasing your tooth’s durability and keeping out food particles and bacteria.
Crowns can be a great option in a number of situations. They can be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is also a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
If you are missing one or more teeth, the best solution may be to fill the gap with a dental bridge. Westbrook Dental is able to provide the care you need when you are ready repair a gap due to a missing tooth. The two teeth on each side of the gap act as anchors, with dental crowns (aka caps) placed on each to hold your new artificial tooth or teeth in place. Dental bridges can a great way to restore your smile without having to undergo a more invasive procedure.
If you are missing too many teeth to restore your smile with a dental bridge, then dentures may provide the solution you need. Dentures are artificial teeth specially made to fit your unique smile. With dentures, your ability to chew can be restored, and you may find talking to be easier. Dentures also improve your appearance, not only by giving you a confident smile, but also by preventing your facial muscles from sagging.
