What if I Do Nothing?
Far too often, people think that if broken teeth aren’t currently hurting, there’s no big hurry to repair them. While we respect our patients’ priorities, we do want to encourage you to keep in mind that more extensive dental work may be in your future if doing nothing is your preferred path forward. Dental injuries, unlike other areas of the body, can’t heal themselves over time, allowing for more severe infection and physical harm to set in. Restorative dentistry (such as crowns and fillings) is the best solution available for preserving teeth and helping your smile stay whole and functional.
Dental crowns are often recommended when natural teeth have suffered significant damage or decay. This style of customized restoration has a two-pronged effect, both preserving what remains of the natural structure while also rebuilding and revitalizing its original shape and strength. Dr. Carter is happy to offer top-tier porcelain materials so that your new smile addition blends in beautifully while still functioning at a high level.
Mercury Free Dentistry
When it comes to the health and overall quality of life of his valued patients, Dr. Carter takes absolutely no chances. That’s why our practice has eliminated mercury from all restorative solutions, including amalgam fillings and metal crowns. Instead, we use composite resin and dental porcelain to create lasting improvements that are not only safe, but attractive enough to seamlessly preserve your sense of self-confidence.
When repairing damage caused by tooth decay, composite resin is our ideal material here in Lawrenceville. It comes in several different enamel-like shades that can be matched precisely to your smile’s natural color while also providing plenty of flexibility, allowing for smaller, more conservative fillings that better preserve healthy tooth structure. The lack of metals is also safer, and patients won’t experience excessive sensitivity when eating hot or cold foods.
