Taking Care Of An Unflattering Chipped Tooth

The shock and discomfort of chipping your tooth can occur almost immediately after the damage takes place. Unfortunately, the lasting effects of that damage can last considerably longer – because your tooth structure will not repair itself on its own, the change to your smile is permanent without treatment. Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office is prepared to help you do something about this damage. With modern cosmetic dental work, you can make an injured tooth appear fully intact, and in good health. You can find that the treatment you need is easier to complete than you expect, and you can see lasting results! It should be noted that in the event that the damage is more serious than you first suspect, it may take a dental restoration to properly address the issue.

One Damaged Tooth Can Spoil Your Smile!

It can be frustrating to see just how much one injured tooth can do to your smile. If the problem is hard to hide when you smile and speak, you can be understandably concerned that your appearance has dramatically changed. The inability of your tooth to heal itself means that the issue will continue to be a concern for your smile until you finally see your dentist.

Reviewing Your Cosmetic Dental Treatment Options

As you and your dentist consult about your cosmetic dental issue, you can find that you have options when it comes to repairing your smile. With a custom porcelain veneer, you can hide the damage to your tooth behind a durable restoration that can stay in great shape. Veneers are effective against many cosmetic concerns, including injuries. You can also discuss a bonding treatment to restore the way your tooth looks. Rather than rely on a restoration, this procedure will see your dentist carefully address your tooth’s shape by applying a special resin material.

What If Your Tooth Needs More Than Just Cosmetic Treatment?

How can you be sure that a chip in your tooth is only an esthetic concern? If you falsely assume that your tooth is still in good condition, you can be unhappily surprised when that damage grows worse, and affects your oral health. Having your dentist review a dental injury when one occurs can protect you against this problem. Because our office can produce dental crowns in one visit, a more serious form of damage can be addressed in as little as one appointment.
