When your teeth need restoration, we can choose from several different types, including fillings, inlays and onlays. Restorations seal out bacteria and restore the shape of the tooth. The type we recommend depends on how strong the tooth is and how much tooth structure has been lost.
If you are thinking of delaying treatment, you should know that tooth decay will never go away on its own. It grows slowly while it’s still in the hard enamel, but if decay is allowed to reach the softer inner dentin, it grows much more quickly, allowing bacteria to infect the pulp chamber. If this happens, you’ll need root canal therapy to save the tooth. That’s why we recommend treating the tooth as soon as possible.
