Fillings are necessary when you do have a cavity, even a small one. Doing so keeps the cavity from growing and putting you at risk for an infection, pain, and eventual root canal therapy. If a tooth becomes severely decayed, or is cracked or chipped, our dentist in Deerfield will place a crown (or cap) on top of the tooth to strengthen it. This is vital to avoid losing the tooth entirely, and also to stop bacteria from getting inside and an infection setting in. Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, to cover a tooth that is discolored, crooked, or misshapen.
Speaking of cosmetic needs, our dentist in Deerfield is pleased to offer veneers, which are thin shells placed over the fronts of your teeth that give you a greatly enhanced smile. They handle many of the same concerns as crowns do, but also are great for dealing with gaps between your teeth that are too wide. Teeth whitening, both in our office and a handy take-home option, are perfect if you would prefer the convenience of doing it at your own pace. Our whitening methods are both effective and safe, unlike store-bought products that can contain abrasive ingredients that lead to your tooth enamel becoming damaged. Bridges and dentures are done to replace missing teeth. They have stood the test of time as efficient and trustworthy ways to fill that empty space and restore your full smile. Or if you would like to take advantage of the most advanced tooth replacement today, choose implants. Contact our Deerfield dental office to schedule an appointment.
