If you want to protect the health of your pearly whites, you probably know that there are a number of things you should do. Fortunately, there are several options that can help you meet the needs of your teeth. For example, either a crown or filling could help you, but each may be better for different circumstances.

When your tooth decay has just broken through your enamel, this is when we would recommend using a filling. This filling will help save your natural tooth and will also stop decay from further damaging your teeth. Fillings can also be made to match the color of your teeth to leave your smile looking beautiful.

For example, our team could recommend a crown for tooth decay, however if your tooth decay is not too severe, a filling will probably work. Fillings are a great option because they can save most of your natural tooth. Fillings can also be made to blend beautifully with the natural color of your teeth.

If your tooth decay is severe enough, it may need to be treated with a dental crown instead of a normal filling. These crowns are made to look like your natural teeth. Crowns are also used to protect your teeth and gums from further damage. A crown is most commonly used after root canal therapy and will help prevent future decay.

If you have more concerns about either of these treatments, please don’t hesitate to give York Dental a call at 952-841-0122. Dr. will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you decide on the best treatments for your individual needs. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
