What isn’t a closely-guarded secret in regard to restorative dentistry is the purpose it serves.
Everyone knows that we face a host of dental problems throughout a lifetime that will need some sort of restorative treatment to preserve the health of your smile.
What’s not as well-known, however, is that keeping your teeth healthy doesn’t have to come at a cosmetic price.
Well, as long as you trust the right dentist to do the work!
Here are two examples of how Dr. Hurcomb and our team at Tulip Tree Dental Care in South Bend, IN can use restorative dentistry to protect, and even replace, decayed, damaged, or missing teeth while maintaining the cosmetic appeal of your smile!
*Hide Evidence Of Past Cavities With Tooth-Colored Fillings*
The downside of treating cavities, at least in the past, was that you probably had no choice but to rely on a dark, metal filling.
While this would’ve effectively protected your oral health at the time, you would’ve had to deal with a visible reminder of the cavity.
Well, you and everyone else who noticed the dark filling when you smiled, laughed, or spoke to them, most likely.
But fortunately, restorative dentistry isn’t what it used to be!
At Tulip Tree Dental Care, we can treat decayed teeth with tooth-colored fillings so you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for better oral health!
After cleaning and removing the decayed portion of the tooth, we fill the cavity with a composite resin and then shape it to preserve the shape and look of your tooth. That way your restorative treatment is seamless, keeping your dental problem hidden from view so you, and everyone else, will only notice your healthy, beautiful smile!
*Repair & Replace Teeth With Natural-Looking Dental Crowns*
As time goes on, you’ll notice that just like other aspects of your appearance, your teeth can also give away your age.
That’s because after years of use, your teeth can change color, become worn, chipped, or cracked.
These dental problems can arise no matter how well you’ve taken care of your teeth over the years. And of course, it’s important to treat them as they happen to keep your oral health on track.
But along with keeping your teeth strong and safe, repairing or replacing damaged or missing teeth with natural-looking dental crowns gives offers a great cosmetic advantage!
Just as we work to make sure your dental crowns and bridges are durable and lasting, we want them to look and feel just like real teeth. It’s important to us that they feel comfortable and that your confidence is intact because of how great your smile looks.
