Once you notice the telltale signs of a cavity, you should contact our team in Charlotte, NC to take care of it. The sooner you act the easier your treatment is on your smile and your wallet.
Here are your options.
Dental fillings do two things. They fill in the part of your tooth that has been damaged by decay, and they provide protection against further damage. At our office, you also can get another benefit. Our composite fillings can be made to match the color of your tooth. This way, your filling blends in with the rest of your smile.
If a cavity grows large, a filling may not be sufficient to repair the damage to your tooth. A dental crown is used to cap the tooth to restore its appearance and your ability to bite and chew with that tooth. Since we make our crowns in-house, we can ensure that they are the highest quality for you.
If the decay goes too deep, it can lead to a tooth infection. In addition to causing painful toothaches, this can put your tooth at risk. A root canal is how we remove the infected tissue, fill your tooth with a special material to support it, and then cap it with a crown.
