Many people deal with tooth decay in one form or another. However, what a lot of people don’t understand is the wealth of restoration options that exist for anyone dealing with tooth decay. Today, we’ll look at a few of the options Dr. Szilard Zombor offers to his patients to help them fix the effect of tooth decay.
One of the most common ways to fix tooth decay is by using dental fillings to fix cavities. These fillings are now available in tooth-colored materials, so the silver shine of amalgam fillings are no longer your only option.
If you’ve had severe decay, or a cracked tooth, there’s a chance you may need a crown. This is simply a porcelain cap that fits over your affected tooth, effectively giving it a new “crown,” or biting surface. Crowns are very popular, and are a simple procedure.
Dental implants are another popular option for people who have such advanced tooth decay that preventative or stopgap measures won’t cut it. Implants are simply titanium posts inserted into your gums where your old tooth used to be. The posts are then topped with a crown that matches the shape, size, and color of the real teeth in your mouth. Implants are so popular because they look so real.
