Depending on the extent of decay, we offer a range of restorative options to help maintain a healthy mouth. For smaller cavities, we perform routine composite (tooth-colored) restorations. Teeth that have more extensive decay, either porcelain inlays, on-lays or full coverage porcelain crowns may be deemed necessary.
If there is any nerve involvement or tooth infection is present, a root canal will have to be performed, which involves the removal of the nerve from the tooth canal. Dr. Patel will thoroughly explain what is necessary and why during your initial as well as any subsequent visits.
