When it comes to caring for you smile, Dr. Aiello often recommends a partial or full-coverage restoration for teeth suffering from damage that a simple filling can no longer fix. At our Township office, we offer three different types of options that take fillings a step further:
- Full Coverage Crowns
In preparing your tooth for the restoration, some tooth recontouring and shaping may have occurred, which can result in temporary nerve sensitivity. You may also have experienced some mild gum abrasion during your treatment. This minimal discomfort can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain reducers. Any sensitivity should gradually diminish on its own.
Tap Your Teeth Together
Once your procedure is completed, we’ll check your natural bite to be sure that it’s comfortable. If at any time after your treatment your bite feels a little off, come in and see us. We’ll recheck your smile and adjust your restoration to make sure you’re biting comfortably.
Watch What You Eat
Healthy Oral Habits
Even with a full-coverage crown, tooth decay can form at the edge of your new restoration. Prevent future problems by brushing and flossing regularly and by visiting Dr. Aiello every 6 months, for a professional cleaning and exam.
We want your healthy smile to last as long as possible. With the right preventive care techniques – it can. Call our Clinton Township dentist today to schedule your next check-up with us.
