Teeth that appear jagged can look damaged, or stand out when compared to their neighbors. This creates a visual distraction that hurts people’s impression of your smile, leaving you with less confidence in the way you look. Even a small variation is enough to have an unwelcome impact on the way you look. Fortunately, this is a problem that can be addressed through a conservative amount of cosmetic dental work. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can walk you through your options for cosmetic treatment to address this issue. Through tooth bonding treatment, we can actually resolve the problem without the placement of a restoration. This means the work takes less time, and it also means you can have the results you want with minimal changes to your enamel.
One Jagged Tooth Can Stand Out In Your Smile
A tooth that feels out of place in your smile for any reason can make you self-conscious. A jagged tooth can look distinct to others. If the tooth’s shape is affected by damage, it can create a negative impression around your overall oral health. Even if the problem occurred naturally, it can be upsetting to have this glaring issue draw unwanted focus. Fortunately, treatment can hide this flaw and give you a flattering, symmetrical smile that you are more eager to share!
A Conservative Procedure Can Fix A Misshapen Tooth
We can discuss your options for restoring and reshaping a jagged tooth during a cosmetic consultation. One procedure we can recommend is tooth bonding. This approach will see your dentist apply a composite resin substance to your enamel in order to carefully change the way your tooth looks. By doing so, it becomes possible to even out its jagged shape without affixing a restoration. Another treatment option is to cover the tooth with a porcelain veneer. While this does require more preparatory work than the bonding procedure, veneers provide greater durability, which means it will be easier to provide lasting changes to the way you look.
What We Can Do If Your Jagged Tooth Interferes With Your Bite Function
If the shape or size of your tooth affects more than just the way you look, we may find that a dental crown is the appropriate treatment. By covering the tooth with a custom crown, we can make it easier for you to bite and chew so that you can apply pressure to it without concern. Thanks to the CEREC technology in our office, we can restore the tooth with a custom crown that is ready in just one appointment!
