Fillings And Crowns Edmonton
When you have a cavity, you need to visit the dentist as soon as possible. It is best to go to the dentist every six or twelve months so that the dentist can discover any cavities before they worsen. If you suffer from dental pain, you likely need immediate dental care. At South Central Dentistry, we offer complete dental services, including fillings and crowns in Edmonton. We strive to provide comfortable, efficient, and stress-free services to handle all of your dental needs.
Do I Need a Filling and Crown?
When you have a cavity, the dentist will need to clean out the area and install a filling. If the damage is extensive, such as when you need root canal therapy, the dentist will need to place a crown on top of the tooth when he completes the work. The dentist will examine your tooth and review x-rays to determine the best options. The purpose of a filling is to prevent further tooth decay and keep the tooth free from internal bacteria that can damage the tooth. The filling prevents further deterioration and restores the strength and function of the tooth. The dentist uses high-quality materials for fillings and crowns in Edmonton.
Materials for Fillings and Crowns in Edmonton
The dentist has a couple of choices for materials to use in fillings and crowns in Edmonton. The dentist may use composite or amalgam for fillings. Amalgam is a silver-colored material that is a combination of various metals. In the past, amalgam was the most popular choice for fillings. You may prefer a composite dental filling because it is a compound that matches the color of your tooth. Composite fillings are strong and durable and will restore the appearance of your teeth so that your filling is not visible.
Are Fillings Painful?
Some people avoid visiting the dentist because they are afraid of pain. If you are experiencing pain from a decayed tooth, you will immediately enjoy relief when you visit the dentist. The dentist provides pain relief so that you will have a comfortable and stress-free experience. If you prefer, we offer a variety of dental sedation options to make the visit more comfortable. Options include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and IV sedation or a combination. We have training and experience in dental sedation and provide monitoring to ensure your safety throughout the procedure.
