You probably know that there are a number of things you should do if you’re interested in keeping your pearly whites strong. Luckily, there are many things you need to do to keep your teeth strong, but did you know that dealing with tooth decay is one of them? If you don’t, it could spread quickly and lead to a number of issues. Luckily, crowns and fillings could help treat cavities, but did you know that these treatments could be more useful in different circumstances.

Of course, you could need a crown or a filling to treat tooth decay, but do you know which you may need? If you have a small, or a relatively small cavity, our team will probably recommend a filling. Fillings are useful because they’re relatively inexpensive and because they’re designed to look and feel like your other teeth.

If your decay is serious enough, we may not be able to treat it with a filling. In these instances, we could suggest a crown. These crowns can also be useful because they’re made to look like your natural teeth. These crowns are often placed after a number of treatments in order to protect your teeth. For example, we’ll place a crown after you’ve had root canal therapy to stop future decay.

To learn more about the either of these treatments, we invite you to give Henry K. Danziger DDS a call at 203.729.0563. Dr. Henry Danziger and our entire team will gladly address any of your concerns and help you decide on the best treatments for you. We’re excited to receive your call soon.
