If you want to make sure your smile is in good shape, you should be combining smart daily care with regular dental exams. Unfortunately, even people who are generally able to stay on top of their smile needs can learn that they have a cavity during a routine checkup. This might lead to some concerns:  What will it take to restore your tooth? Will this change your smile? Your New York, NY dentist can make sure that a cavity’s threat is completely addressed. In addition to removing decay, and making sure your tooth is healthy, your dentist will place a durable and lifelike restoration. While your goal should always be to avoid cavities, you can enjoy the reassurance that comes with knowing you have access to modern restorative dental care if you ever need it.

Dealing With Tooth Decay And Dental Damage

Tooth decay’s effect is irreversible, meaning you will not have healthy dental material grow to replace what was lost to a cavity. However, you can count on your dentist to remove all infected material, and address what you lost with a dental filling or dental crown. Both of these restorations can be an ideal match for your surrounding teeth, which means your smile can continue to look normal after treatment.

Regaining Your Complete Smile After Tooth Loss

If you need to replace a missing tooth, you can enjoy the advantages that come with a permanent prosthetic restoration. A dental bridge uses crowns to remain secure, and will not require oral surgery. With a dental implant-supported prosthetic, you can enjoy greater stability for your restoration, and your neighboring teeth. You can also avoid problems with jawbone deterioration.
