Tooth decay issues, while serious, aren’t “tooth-ending” problems. Thanks to the huge advances in dental technology, our team here at Dr. Shur Dental in Lynnwood, Washington, can offer you a ton of different options to restore any of your teeth that have been affected by tooth decay.

Let’s look at what just a few of those options are.

Fillings

One of the most common ways to fix tooth decay is by using dental fillings to fix cavities. These fillings are now available in tooth-colored materials, so the silver shine of amalgam fillings are no longer your only option.

Crowns

If you’ve had severe decay, or a cracked tooth, there’s a chance you may need a crown. This is simply a porcelain cap that fits over your affected tooth, effectively giving it a new “crown,” or biting surface. Crowns are very popular, and are a simple procedure.

Implants

Dental implants are another popular option for people who have such advanced tooth decay that preventative or stopgap measures won’t cut it. Implants are simply titanium posts inserted into your gums where your old tooth used to be. The posts are then topped with a crown that matches the shape, size, and color of the real teeth in your mouth. Implants are so popular because they look so real.

The bottom line is that if you do have some tooth decay, or other tooth problems, you don’t need to worry too much because we’ll be able to take care of you and your needs. To schedule an appointment to get your decay fixed, call us today at 425-741-2030.
