Sometimes your tooth may not be visibly damage but might be sensitive to temperature, meaning it hurts when something hot or cold touches the tooth. Sensitivity can have many different causes, and in some cases, it can point to decay or unseen damage. We can narrow down the source of your sensitivity once we examine your teeth. We may recommend a crown or filling as a solution based on what we find during our evaluation.
Dental crowns are designed to “cap” off a natural tooth providing it with protection, durability, and lifelike structure. Here at Remmers Dental, we recommend crowns as the ideal solution for a variety of issues including cavities, physical injury, general weakening, and cosmetic concerns. They’re also typically used as the finishing touches for dental implant and root canal procedures. The process for crown placement usually requires two to three appointments. Thankfully, our Louisville, KY practice offers busy patients a much faster solution. With CEREC, we design and place a personalized, tooth-colored crown in just one appointment – no temporary restorations required.
Here in Louisville, KY, our dental team is proud to primarily offer tooth-colored fillings. Made from quality composite resin, this cosmetic-minded solution for cavities can be placed in just one simple appointment. After choosing the perfect shade for your natural smile and removing decay from the tooth, one of our doctors precisely sculpts the filling into place taking care to create a lifelike appearance. Then, a special light hardens the composite resin in place completing the procedure.
Besides the obvious aesthetic component, tooth-colored fillings offer our patients several benefits when compared to traditional amalgam fillings. We don’t have to remove as much of your tooth’s natural structure to accommodate the composite resin, allowing teeth to stay stronger. It also isn’t affected by changes in temperature like amalgam, resulting in more comfort overall.
