DENTAL METAL – FREE FILLINGS
A filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and so forth. In just one appointment, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed, cleaned, and filled.
Composite or tooth-colored fillings can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. There are further options aesthetically suited for use in the front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
The procedure is usually completed in one appointment. In preparing your tooth for the filling, the doctor will remove all decay, and thoroughly clean your tooth. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication may be applied for your protection. After preparation, the composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished.
At the conclusion of your treatment, you will be given care instructions and advice from your doctor. It is normal to feel sensitivity to your filling when the treatment is first performed, but your doctor’s instructions will let you know how to manage any short-term sensitivity, and how to maintain restored oral health. Please call our dental office to schedule your next dental appointment and receive the restorative treatment you need for a healthy, pain-free smile.
Teeth Veneers FAQ
Porcelain veneers are very strong and resilient. You will be able to eat and bite normally. However, just as with your natural tooth, you should always avoid biting on hard foods or ice, for example. You should also avoid harmful practices such as opening packages or bottles with your teeth. Taking care of your veneers will avoid cracks or damages.
Not only are veneers strong, but they are also very durable. They could last 10 to 20 years, depending on your oral care, your bite, and the quality of the work in your mouth, among other factors. Keeping good oral hygiene and steady dental checkups will absolutely help your veneers last longer.
Depending on the amount of veneers you need, anesthesia may be used during the preparation of your teeth. Many patients prefer the usual local anesthesia to feel comfortable during the treatment considering that a thin part of your tooth surface needs to be removed. But your dentist will always take into account your needs and preferences.
For veneers to fit perfectly over your worn or damaged tooth, a very thin layer of tooth enamel must be removed. Because of this, the process is irreversible..
Your dental insurance company may allow coverage of cosmetic procedures if, for example, the procedure is part of a reconstructive surgery. However, most dental plans do not usually provide benefits for cosmetic procedures as they are considered optional aesthetic treatments. But you should always ask what procedures your dental insurance covers.
If you grind your teeth at night, chances are that you will damage your teeth whether you have veneers or not. To avoid damaging or breaking the veneers, your dentist will recommend to wear a protective bite guard to lessen the pressure on your veneers while you sleep.
