Inviting and Cozy
Amalgam fillings are strong and can last a long time, but they also leave a very noticeable gray mark on the tooth and can increase its sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Tooth-colored fillings are highly preferred nowadays because they are just as strong as amalgam but can be shaded to match the color of a tooth so perfectly that it looks just like a natural part of the mouth. It also doesn’t expand and contract in response to temperature changes, and there’s no sensitivity to worry about.
A dental crown can serve a few different functions. It can restore the shape of a tooth that has been damaged, or it can serve as protection for weakened enamel so that it doesn’t break while you’re biting and chewing. The versatility of crowns makes them a great option for treating all kinds of dental problems, and they can be made from different materials based on the situation. It will take at least two appointments to place a dental crown, but this is necessary to ensure that the final result is the best possible fit.
Root Canal Therapy
A cracked or chipped tooth could be vulnerable to infection. The only way to treat infected dental pulp is to have it removed via root canal therapy before the damage can spread any further. While it’s common to experience severe pain before the infection is treated, patients find that the root canal process itself involves little to no discomfort, and it puts a stop to the pain they were already experiencing. The tooth is repaired with a crown afterward.
