Reviewing Treatment Options For A Chipped Tooth

If you feel like your smile has never been the same since chipping your tooth, you can be eager to have the damage restored. At our Rochester, MN dental practice, we can perform cosmetic dental treatment to give a person back the smile by addressing a dental injury. We can talk with you during a free cosmetic consultation about your options for correcting the appearance of a chipped tooth. The right procedure can preserve your tooth’s natural look while improving its shape and color. You can also find that big changes are possible, even as your dentist minimizes the change to your tooth structure.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Correct The Shape Of A Chipped Tooth

Cosmetic dental work can target certain problems that you might have with a tooth, or several teeth. A chipped tooth can be restored so that it looks the way it did before being injured. The right treatment can also hide cracks in your enamel, add size to a small tooth, or correct any issues with discoloration. Because the materials used in cosmetic work closely match the appearance of your natural teeth, you will not have to worry about your treatment leaving a lasting difference between your restored tooth and its neighbors!

Moving Forward With A Cosmetic Treatment

After meeting with your dentist for a consultation to discuss your smile trouble, you can arrange a procedure to improve your appearance. You can have a chipped tooth restored through dental bonding work – during the procedure, your dentist will improve your appearance by applying lifelike composite resin to the surface of your tooth. This material can be shaped in order to hide a chip, cover up stains or blemishes, and even to close a gap between teeth. You can also look forward to a significant smile improvement thanks to the placement of a porcelain veneer. Veneers are custom shells that are affixed to the front of teeth. By covering this area, they can improve your smile by completely hiding the flaws that affect an unsightly tooth. Custom veneers are designed to be slim so that they require minimal work on your tooth structure. They can retain their appearance over many years, as the porcelain material used to create them is remarkably durable.

Using A Dental Crown To Restore A Chipped Tooth

If the damage to your tooth is more than just a cosmetic problem, a chip or crack can call for restorative dental work. Does this mean you will not have the opportunity to restore its appearance? You can be relieved to know that our practice has technology at our location that allows us to produce a dental crown made from lifelike ceramic, meaning you can enjoy functional protection as well as cosmetic improvement from your restorative work!
