Restorative Dentistry Louisville
Repairing Damaged & Decayed Teeth
Cavities and dental trauma are among the most common issues that we treat at Hurstbourne Dental Care. However, instead of offering noticeable metal restorations that can lead to heightened tooth sensitivity as well as extensive alteration of your existing tooth structure, we use biocompatible materials. Whether you’re battling decay or have a previously treated or damaged tooth that needs additional support, our Louisville dental team can craft you a customized restorative dentistry solution to strengthen and preserve it.

Dental crowns are small, cap-like structures that can be secured on top of the biting surface of teeth to rebuild and protect them. We typically recommend them to correct severely misshapen teeth, fix large cavities, and fortify teeth with large dental fillings. Once your tooth has been prepared to fit under the crown, we’ll adhere it to the tooth structure so it can provide you with long-term support.
Decay can erode teeth, making the sensitive inner collection of nerves and soft tissues more vulnerable to infection and pain. To stop a cavity from spreading, we can seal the damage off with a tooth-colored filling. These are made from a biocompatible composite resin that’s shaded to match the color of a tooth’s existing enamel. Due to its ability to fuse with enamel, less alteration of the tooth is necessary compared to a traditional metal filling.
