Has it been weeks or months since you were last able to enjoy a meal without dental discomfort? Have you become accustomed to hiding your smile during photo ops, because of visible damage to your teeth, such as chips, cracks or even jagged edges caused by years of wear or subconscious teeth grinding? If you are not feeling confident showing your smile, or are experiencing sensitivity or discomfort, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn of the many ways that restorative dentistry could help.
Could Your Teeth Actually Look Better Too?
Many people still think of noticeable metal fillings and crowns, when they think of restorative dentistry. In fact, it is this very thought that causes many people to shy away from seeking restoration after a dental problem like a cavity or even a crack. Fortunately, modern restorative dentistry actually includes a number of treatment options designed to help seamlessly restore the smile, so patients can smile both comfortably and confidently, again.
From tooth-colored fillings to porcelain and zirconia crowns, restorative dentists can now fit patients with restorations that will not be easily spotted, or uncomfortable during meals.
So if you are someone that has postponed smile-saving restorative treatment, out of fear what it will mean for your smile, now is a great time to talk with your dentist about the many seamless options for improving your smile.
Compelling Reasons to Seek Restorative Treatment Quickly
Just keep in mind that the sooner you seek restoration, the more likely a simple treatment like a filling or crown will be able to effectively address the issue and restore your oral health. The longer you wait, the more likely more invasive measures, such as root canal treatment, will become necessary. So don’t postpone a dental visit, if you suspect you have a dental problem. Instead schedule an appointment as quickly as possible.
