People often think of cavities when they think about dental restorations. But some people need other work done on their teeth. Sometimes, they have sports injuries, and sometimes they have fallen and experienced trauma to their mouths.
Normally, if it is possible to fix the tooth in a single visit, then we will try to do just that for our patients. It is quite often however that we give our patients temporary solutions while we take the time necessary to fabricate a permanent solution for their problem.
When a tooth is chipped or broken, it can cause pain and discomfort. It also makes it hard to eat or chew. Sometimes when there is enough healthy tooth left, we can put a temporary filling on the tooth until we are able to make a crown or another type of repair. Temporary fillings are not intended to be long-term solutions, but they help while we work on something more permanent.
Permanent restorations are things like crowns, caps, permanent fillings and various types of dentures. These types of restorations usually need more than one visit. We make impressions with a type of material to ensure that you get the right color and fit. When they are ready, you will have a beautiful smile without any pain or discomfort.
