Superficial cuts in the skin subside without a trace, infections are wiped out with antibiotics, broken bones mend, and inflamed tissues abate. Our teeth, unfortunately, can’t regenerate. Decay can be halted in its progress, but scientists are still years away from actual enamel regeneration. That’s why the team at Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry strongly emphasizes preventative and restorative dentistry in Davidson.
Stark Reality of Dental Health
The healthiest mouths have all teeth intact and free of current or former cavities. But how many smiles can boast such an admirable record? Very few. The stark reality is that most men and women get one or more cavities over the course of their lifetime. In fact, most men and women in North Carolina probably don’t even know someone who has never had a cavity. Tooth decay is second only to the common cold as the most frequent health trouble in childhood. When we reach middle age, many of us have even had a root canal or two. Depending on the size of the cavity, after cleaning and preparing the tooth, Doctor Coleman can fill it, place a crown, or perform a root canal, usually followed by a crown.
Restorative Dentistry in Davidson Has Come a Long Way
Modern restorations have many advantages compared to those in the past. There are stronger and more natural-looking materials. Many of our patients at Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry who have not had a filling for a while, are not aware that white fillings are available. You can even replace old amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings and give your mouth a smile makeover!
As we said before, when a tooth is by injury or decay, it is never exactly the way it was before. But now, with modern fillings and crowns, restorative dentistry in Davidson can help you regain strength and beauty. For more information, call us or visit us online!
