Damaged teeth will not heal on their own like a cut on your arm or the common cold. If you don’t pursue restorative treatment, that damaged tooth will break down further. Eventually, the tooth will be so damaged that more comprehensive treatment will be needed to restore its function. The sooner you get your tooth restored, whether it’s via a crown, filling or other restoration, the sooner you can rest knowing that your smile and your oral health are in proper condition. At Texas Dentistry, you can expect all of these services and more, so don’t wait to schedule an appointment for restorative dentistry in Mesquite!
Tooth-colored fillings do not use any metal materials to restore teeth, which cannot be said for traditional silver amalgam dental fillings. Not only do tooth-colored fillings work to restore your smile’s appearance, but they offer additional relief to patients dealing with tooth sensitivity, which is a common issue for those with amalgam fillings. Since tooth-colored fillings use durable composite resin to restore teeth, you don’t have to sacrifice durability just to maintain your smile’s natural look. Once we’ve cleared away all decay and molded the resin, we’ll harden it using a special curing light and send you on your way!
Do you have severe tooth decay? Is your current filling taking up more than two-thirds of your overall tooth? If so, a dental crown may be more appropriate for restoring your tooth. Not only do dental crowns prevent future damage to your natural tooth, but they also seal your tooth from oral bacteria. This reduces the risk of infection and makes your smile look truly complete. Additionally, having a dental crown reduces the risk of neighboring teeth shifting into the open space left behind.
Our dental office wants to get your tooth restored the same day that you need it. Whether it’s a natural-looking, high-quality crown, inlay, onlay, or filling, we’ll take every step possible to get it done in a single visit. This way, your damaged tooth will remain protected while we create your permanent crown. We work closely with dental labs to ensure that your new restoration is made in as little time as possible.
