Do you go out of your way to make sure no one can see your chipped tooth when you smile or speak? Are you worried that a recent dental injury has permanently altered your smile? Do you feel frustrated about “minor” damage that seems to draw more than its fair share of attention? Any injury that chips, cracks, or otherwise harms a tooth should be taken seriously. A problem can be more serious than you initially expect, which means your tooth’s health and appearance can worsen without the appropriate care. With that said, it is often possible to quickly and discreetly fix chips and other forms of harm with conservative cosmetic dental work. Sunny Smiles can meet with you and provide treatment options based on the condition of your tooth. If you qualify for tooth bonding and contouring work, we can have your smile and tooth restored in as little as one appointment!
Why You Should Feel Concerned About A Chipped Tooth
A chipped tooth can negatively affect your smile and oral health. If you do nothing about this problem, its condition may worsen in time, leading to more trouble and the need for more involved restorative dental work. Even if you are confident that the matter is only cosmetic, make a visit to your dentist a priority. Once the tooth is studied, you can learn if the matter really does require nothing more than cosmetic treatment, or if you might require restorative dental work to prevent further difficulties.
Scheduling Cosmetic Treatment To Restore Your Smile
Cosmetic procedures address embarrassing dental flaws while only requiring conservative changes to your tooth structure. The tooth bonding and contouring process can change a tooth’s appearance in as little as one appointment, as we will not have to make or place a permanent restoration. Instead, your dentist will contour the tooth to improve its shape, then use a composite resin material to hide damage and generally improve its appearance. We also have the option of restoring a chipped tooth with a custom dental veneer. Veneers only cover a tooth’s front surface. This requires less preparatory work and fewer modifications overall than the placement of a dental crown. However, a crown may be necessary for properly restoring teeth in some situations.
You May Need A Dental Crown For Your Tooth
Is your tooth in danger of suffering more damage? You should still feel confident in your ability to bite and chew with a tooth after an injury. If there is a potential risk for the enamel to break further, or for an infection to develop, restorative dentistry can help! A dental crown will provide bite support as well as cosmetic improvement. Once the custom crown is fitted on the tooth, it can provide long-term protection.
