Restoring Your Smile By Treating Your Injured Tooth

A tooth injury can take away confidence in your smile and put your oral health at risk. While the threat to your dental health should be taken seriously, our Rochester, MN dentist’s office recognizes that the cosmetic effects of trauma can also be hard to tolerate. Fortunately, we are able to provide services that can give you back your full confidence in your smile. The severity of your injury will influence how we approach your treatment. For relatively minor problems, we can provide solutions in the form of cosmetic dentistry. However, if the damage is more significant, we may need to use a dental crown to make sure that your tooth is safe.

Have You Tried To Ignore Problems With Your Injured Tooth?

If you are trying to ignore a problem with your injured tooth, you can start to suffer the negative effects of your choice. That can come in the form of more physical damage to your tooth, which can change the way your dentist has to restore it. You can also develop complications because of an infection, which can form when a tooth is cracked. Infections lead to persistent pain, as well as the risk of losing your tooth!

Cosmetic Treatment May Be Enough To Address Enamel Damage

If the damage to your tooth does not affect your oral health, or limit your ability to apply bite pressure, you can move forward with a cosmetic dental procedure to address visible damage. A chip or crack can be hidden through a tooth bonding procedure, which relies on the composite resin substance used to make dental fillings that discreetly address cavities. There is also the option of restoring a tooth with a custom dental veneer. A veneer is made from a durable porcelain material that can hold up against years of friction from biting and chewing. It is a thin shell, one that only has to cover the front surface of a tooth to make positive changes to your appearance.

We Can Restore Your Tooth With A Same-Day Crown

Because we have CEREC technology at our office, we are able to act quickly and give patients custom dental crowns in just one day! This technology lets us digitally measure a tooth, use the gathered measurements to design the restoration, then produce it in our in-office milling machine! After doing this, it can be placed over the tooth to provide permanent protection. This affords us the ability to quickly respond to tooth damage and to restore your smile!
