Making An Uneven Tooth A Better Fit In Your Smile

It is possible for one tooth to be flawed to the point of undermining your smile. This could be a natural consequence, as your tooth could simply be misshapen as a result of flawed development. You could also experience cosmetic issues because of dental damage. Of course, you may be more interested in a solution to this problem than its cause. Fortunately, your Rochester, MN dentist’s office is ready to offer cosmetic dental care that can help you. The right procedure can help a flawed tooth fit in better with its surroundings, improving on the overall quality of your smile.

A Misshapen Or Damaged Tooth Can Have A Frustrating Effect On Your Appearance

Ideally, your smile will be bright, symmetrical, and in good condition. Unfortunately, a single problem tooth can attract more attention than you want, and throw off your appearance. This might be a problem for you after an injury, as your tooth may change shape after being chipped. You could also have a tooth that developed abnormally, and stands out for its shape or size.

How Long Will It Take My Dentist To Finish My Cosmetic Work?

It may take as little as one appointment for your dentist to solve a problem with your flawed tooth. To hide damages, and make adjustments to the size of a tooth, a dental bonding treatment can be performed. This process will see your dentist apply a resin material carefully over your enamel. This material can bond with your outer tooth structure, and imitate it to cover up flaws. In some cases, veneers can be placed over the course of a single visit, but if you have a lab-made restoration, you can arrange for care over the course of two appointments.

What Your Dentist Can Do If Your Tooth Needs More Than Just Cosmetic Support

There are ways to make changes to a flawed tooth while performing minimal work on your tooth structure. The placement of Lumineers or Durathins can require little to no removal of your tooth structure. With that said, if your tooth needs more than just esthetic improvement, it may be better to have a dental crown placed. Your dentist can have your crown created in one visit – once it is secured over your tooth, you can rely on important structural support in addition to cosmetic improvements.
