After a dental injury, you may feel that your once-confident smile will never be the same. While some dental injuries can have little effect on your oral health, their impact on your appearance can be significant. Your Rochester, MN dentist can provide meaningful improvements through cosmetic dentistry. Teeth that have become chipped and cracked can often be treated with minimal effect on surrounding enamel. We can discuss improving the way you look through the placement of porcelain veneers, or through tooth bonding treatment. For individuals who have questions about their options for care, we provide complimentary cosmetic consultations that can offer important information.
Cracked Enamel Can Be A Problem, Even If Your Tooth Is Still Healthy
While a minor chip or crack might not hurt your oral health, that relatively modest change to your tooth structure can be a big problem for your smile. You can be embarrassed to reveal a tooth that is visibly cracked, or misshapen due to chipping. Cosmetic dental work makes it possible for us to restore your appearance while minimizing any changes to your healthy tooth structure.
We Offer Modern Cosmetic Procedures For Dental Damage
- A tooth bonding treatment can lead to meaningful smile improvements without the use of a custom restoration. Composite resin material can be carefully applied in order to hide trauma, or to improve the shape or color of your enamel. This produces results while doing little to affect your tooth structure, and it can ensure your smile quality is restored after just one visit!
- Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells that your dentist bonds to the front of a tooth. The veneer created to support your tooth will be carefully designed to be a good match for the color of your smile, and designed to make sure your tooth appears natural. Once in position, veneers are able to help improve the color, shape, and overall condition of teeth. Veneers are often used to help patients who are trying to see significant smile improvements with minimal work on their tooth structure.
What Happens If I Need More Than Cosmetic Treatment For My Tooth?
You should have a dental injury examined, even if you feel confident that your tooth is still in good condition. Unaddressed trauma can leave you with problems that affect your dental function, and you may be vulnerable to an infection or further damage. If your dentist finds it appropriate, a dental crown can be used to restore the tooth. Our practice uses technology to produce one-visit crowns, so the process of restoring your tooth can be surprisingly convenient!
