When your dentist provides cavity care, their goals are to remove all decay from your tooth, and make sure that tooth has the support it needs to function after treatment. In many instances, a tooth can be repaired with a dental filling after a cavity treatment. Your dentist will supply the filling material after all decayed material has been safely removed. Once it is secure and in place, your filling can offer support, and can do so without disrupting your appearance. You should know that this is the most conservative of the restorative dental treatment procedures that can be performed when you are dealing with decay. A more advanced cavity can make a root canal treatment necessary, and can require a dental crown for your tooth.

Composite Resin Fillings Offer Support That Is Dependable And Discreet

Your dentist offers composite resin fillings, as composite resin provides both durability and a cosmetically pleasing appearance. This substance can match the appearance of your enamel, and can be treated to match its color, so it will not stand out. You also gain the additional benefit of composite resin being able to bond directly to your tooth. This provides it with serious security, and prevents the creation of space between your tooth and the filling.

Make Sure Restorative Dental Needs Are Promptly Addressed

Having your dental needs met sooner than later when you need restorative care means saving more of your tooth from harm. It also means lowering the risk of needing a root canal treatment. A root canal does important work to take care of advanced cavities, but it can be avoided if you seek your treatment in time. If you have a root canal, you should anticipate having a dental crown, and not a filling, to restore your tooth.
