Oftentimes, a major concern that your dentist wants to address involves problems that impact your oral function. That being said, there is a negative connotation that restorative procedures restore your grin, but in a noticeable manner such as metal caps or metal dental fillings. While this is an option, advances in dental technology make it possible to enjoy the benefits of increased function while also not compromising your grin’s appearance. In today’s blog, your Auburn Hills, MI dentist would like to discuss this notion in depth and how composite resin fillings can address your cavities.
Preserving Your Natural Structures
The last thing that you and your dentist wants is for you to lose a tooth, let alone multiple. In fact, adult tooth loss is a frightening experience because it is permanent and because it is usually indicative of a bigger concern. Problems such as dental decay are caused by harmful bacteria wreaking havoc on your grin, and if the situation remains unchecked, it will only continue to get exponentially worse over time.
To best address situations such as the one above, your dentist recommends attending a routine examination at least once every six months. During that meeting, we can check for any signs of damage, trauma, infection, or decay that may have occurred since the last visit, as well as ensure that minor concerns so not develop into major ones.
In some situations, decay can progress at a rapid rate and a cavity may have formed since the last time you came in. Indeed, we can utilize a composite dental resin to help address your cavity and restore the function of a tooth. During this process, we will take care to clean the affected area thoroughly, then apply a dental composite resin to the open space. From here, we will shape the material to closely mimic the natural textures of your teeth, then harden it with a special light. For more information about this process, contact our team today.
A Seamless Finish
One of the major benefits of composite dental fillings involves the ability to closely match your restoration with that of the color of your teeth. In other words, shade-match technology affords the ability to provide a seamless appearance while also restoring your function. While the latter factor is arguably the most important one to satisfy, there is no reason that you should not be able to love a natural looking finish. Contact our team learn more about this process and how we can help.
