RESTORE DAMAGED TEETH
When you come for a dental exam, the dentist checks your fillings and may suggest that you replace any loose or broken ones. The dentist will also look for signs of decay, such as brown or black spots, and might use X-rays to take a closer look at problem spots. If you have a cavity, the dentist might keep an eye on it or fill it right away. If a large cavity is not filled, it can get bigger and cause pain.
Composite fillings are very aesthetic restorations since they are available in natural shades matching tooth colors. In some cases, cavity preparation could become very large for usual fillings and Dr. Kaushal will recommend an inlay or an onlay (partial crown), restorations designed to replace more tooth structure. Those restorations are made in a dental laboratory after the dentist has taken an impression of the preparation. The final placement of inlay or onlay will be made during a second visit.
