When Should You Consider Dental Restoration?

Posted on 10/31/2023 by Weo Admin

Whether teeth damage results from genetic imperfections, infections, or injury, a dentist may recommend dental veneers, crowns, or fillings.

These procedures help to fix the damage while saving the natural tooth. In severe cases, a professional may recommend replacing the damaged tooth. Procedures such as dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures can help to fill in gaps after tooth extraction. Learn 3 signs that indicate it is time for dental restoration:

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is a common reason for dental restoration. Tooth decay can cause discomfort and infections. However, this oral issue does not always signify tooth extraction. When noticed earlier, a dentist can treat tooth decay using crowns or fillings. However, severe cases may require extensive procedures such as root canals.


Enamel erosion is common due to the daily consumption of acidic and sugary items. It can also happen with age or lifestyle factors such as smoking and poor oral hygiene. Erosion is troublesome as it can cause pain and alter one's oral health and bite. When you experience enamel loss, a dentist can restore your teeth with bonding and crown, depending on the extent of the issue.

Uneven Teeth

Uneven teeth can affect your bite and smile. In severe cases, you might experience speaking challenges and jaw disorders. When some teeth are shorter than others or slightly pushed forward, dental restoration may help.

In these cases, dental veneers, crowns, or composite bonding may help to make the teeth even. In severe cases, braces and aligners may help. Do you want to improve your smile and quality of life with dental restorations? Contact us, and our team will suggest an effective option based on your case.
