Cosmetic flaws that hurt your smile can develop gradually, or occur as the result of an injury. With that said, some problems occur naturally, as a person can have teeth that are simply not a good shape or size for their smile. These flaws can affect the symmetry of your smile, they can interfere with the way teeth align, and they may even produce problems for your bite function. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, patients who are bothered by these problems can find that a cosmetic dental procedure offers exciting benefits. With minimal amounts of preparatory work, teeth that are the wrong shape or size can be restored, which can lead to a dramatic smile improvement.
One Undersized Or Misshapen Tooth Can Be A Big Problem For Your Smile
All it takes is one tooth that seems out of place to hurt your smile. Do you feel that a misshapen or small tooth is drawing unwanted attention? Does that single flaw effectively stop you from showing off a symmetrical smile? If so, you may remain self-conscious until you have work done to positively change your appearance. At a free cosmetic consultation, we can review what your options are for treatment. Through just one procedure, you can address an issue that has long made you self-conscious. If your tooth creates problems for your bite function and alignment, we can discuss the benefits of using a tooth-colored dental crown to provide care.
Learn What Your Options For Cosmetic Treatment Are
To change a tooth’s shape and size, we can recommend placing a porcelain veneer, or we can make plans to perform a tooth bonding treatment. Tooth bonding can change a tooth’s shape or size without using a restoration. What we do instead is apply a composite material to the tooth’s surface, which hides flaws and makes the tooth a better match for its neighbors. With a porcelain veneer, a tooth’s flaws can be hidden behind a slim restoration that is affixed to its front.
Should Your Undersized Tooth Be Capped With A Crown?
Is a dental crown necessary for restoring your tooth’s shape and size? By putting a dental crown over it instead of performing another cosmetic treatment, we can make sure that a vulnerable or undersized tooth gives more support to your bite. With the CEREC technology in our office, we can actually produce your crown in one day. This technology lets us digitally measure your tooth, design the restoration, and produce it in our in-office milling machine.
