Has it been weeks or even months since you were actually able to enjoy a coffee break with your coworkers, or dessert after dinner? If so, is it because of an increasing sensitivity when you try to enjoy anything hot, cold or even sweet? Tooth sensitivity is often the result of decay, the kind that creates dental caries, or as they are most commonly called, cavities. These are so common, in fact, that some studies report that nearly 90 percent of the adults in America will struggle with dental decay. Fortunately, if you are one of them, a seamless smile restoration like a modern dental filling could help to protect your tooth from further erosion, and just as importantly, restore your comfort!
Don’t Ignore those Symptoms of Tooth Decay!
It is important that you pay attention to changes in your smile, particularly potential warning signs that your teeth could be suffering from cavities. That’s because, while the teeth are strong, they do not have the ability to repair themselves when damaged. Instead, dental issues are only likely to worsen over time, if unaddressed. This can create a need for more extensive treatment, as well as lead to increasing discomfort and even pain.
Enjoy a Natural-looking Restoration
When you are diagnosed with a dental problem, whether it be a cavity, chip, or even an infection, the restorative dentist can help to restore your oral health, often through minimally invasive treatment, particularly if the issue is diagnosed and treated promptly.
In the case of cavities, this often means using modern dental fillings to help restore the smile. These fillings are made of a composite resin material, rather than metal. The resin creates a tight seal, while also providing obvious cosmetic benefits.
