Restorative dental work is necessary when a cavity affects your tooth, or when a dental injury does permanent harm to your enamel. Our Riverside, CA dentist’s office can do more than just respond to these issues. We provide ongoing preventive services to make them less likely to occur, and to make sure they are promptly caught and treated when they do develop. Unfortunately, not everyone stays consistent with preventive services. In fact, some will not see their dentist again until they feel that something might really be wrong with their oral health. If you find yourself in this position, you may learn that a dental crown is going to be needed in order to properly restore your tooth and oral health.
Is It Time To See Your Dentist About A Possible Problem?
If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity issues, you could have a cavity that has grown serious. As time passes, decay continues to spread and worsen, leading to serious harm to your enamel. That can lead to harm that requires more than just a dental filling, the initial treatment approach for someone with dental decay. A crown requires more preparatory work, but the greater coverage provides more protection. We actually offer different types of crowns at our practice. In addition to providing partial crowns known as inlays and onlays, we can supply a full crown that completely envelops your tooth above the gum line.
Receiving A Custom Dental Crown
We will examine you carefully to determine if you need a partial or full dental crown. Because they cover smaller areas, inlays and onlays require less preparatory work. With that said, a full crown supplies an important degree of protection when you need to do something about a more severe cavity, or when you have physical dental damage. These restorations can be specially made to match your enamel, which can preserve the way you look when you smile.
The Value Of Your Regular Dental Exams
If you want to avoid problems with your oral health, make more trips to the dentist. If you do not do so already, you should come in for a routine exam every six months. By sticking to this schedule, you lower your risk for dental decay. If a cavity does form between appointments, we can catch it when it only requires a dental filling.
