Broken Tooth or Chipped Tooth
At Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we see a lot of patients with broken or chipped teeth. And our trained and experienced dentist, along with our friendly staff, knows how to handle this type of situation.
We are able to use restorative and cosmetic procedures to repair damaged teeth. The right treatment for you will depend on how badly your tooth is damaged. But you do have options, and advancements today mean you don’t have to live with unattractive teeth.
Composite bonding is away to repair chipped, cracked, decayed, discolored, misshapen, and gapped teeth. Composite bonding can last up to 10 years. During the procedure, anesthesia won’t be required unless bonding is being used for cavities. Our dentist will roughen your tooth and put on a conditioning liquid. Putty will be applied, molded, and smoothed. Then, an ultraviolet light is used to harden the composite. When the tooth bonding has dried, it will be shaped and polished to match the rest of the tooth. Veneers
Veneers are covers for a tooth. At our dentist office, we use porcelain veneers because they provide the most attractive and realistic results possible. The veneer is bonded to the front of the tooth, transforming the tooth’s appearance. With good care, veneers can last up to 30 years, so you won’t have to worry about getting it replaced regularly.You can have veneers placed on one tooth or a few. And it’s up to you how you want your veneer to look.
This cosmetic treatment is truly a wonderful option for many people. But, if you grind your teeth, veneers may not be recommended for you because you will wear them down.
