Adult teeth may need cosmetic or restorative treatment for a variety of reasons. Decay is at the top of the list. Fractured teeth are also common. And, unfortunately, sometimes old restorations require replacement. We do this restorative work for you so you can have greater quality of life.
At times, we may recommend that you have a cavity treated. If more than a short time passes (2-3 weeks), your cavity will almost always grow larger and more painful. If it does, it usually requires more work to restore. This adds time and expense to the restoration – and is always more expensive. In extreme cases, we may even need to remove your tooth and replace it with an implant or other type of false tooth. Don’t wait in pain! Get your cavity treated as soon as possible.
We do this restorative work for you so you can have greater quality of life.
If you develop a cavity, it should be treated right away. If restoration is called for, our goal is to eradicate decay, restore functionality, and eliminate pain. There are several materials we can choose from in order to fully restore your tooth.
In some cases, you may have a cavity before you even experience pain. In fact, the optimal time to treat or restore a cavity is before it causes pain. Doing so makes the process easier and less expensive in the long run by reducing the complexity of the treatment.
