Protect Your Smile By Restoring It

Protect Your Smile By Restoring ItIf you come down with the common cold, you may take some cold medicine to offset the symptoms or drink some hot tea. Ultimately, you will just wait for it to get better. The same goes for a minor scrape on the skin or a bruised elbow. In these instances, your body will usually heal itself. When it comes to your teeth, your smile will need some help with restorative dentistry. The protective layer of enamel on the outside of your teeth does not regenerate or heal like your skin and bones. You get one set of permanent teeth in your smile for your adult life. Restoring a decayed or damaged tooth is essential for your smile’s health. The team at Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of Kansas City, MO is here to help you protect your smile.  (more…)
