Any change to a tooth’s shape can draw unwanted attention as well as negatively affect your smile symmetry. This is why a small chip, one that is not serious enough to call for restorative dental work, can still be a source of real unhappiness. Fortunately, with the right cosmetic dental treatment, your Rochester, MN dentist can restore the appearance of your tooth and renew your confidence in your smile! We can make the right changes to the way your tooth looks by performing tooth bonding treatment, or by arranging the placement of a porcelain veneer. Both of these services rely on limited changes to your tooth to produce long-term improvements!
Are You Tired Of Letting Your Chipped Tooth Compromise Your Smile?
Even if you have no issues biting and chewing after your injury, you should take problems with a chipped tooth seriously. A review can tell you if the problem is truly just a cosmetic concern, or if there is more to worry about than just the way you look. For superficial damages, we can arrange treatment to restore your smile in as little as one appointment, so you can regain confidence in the way you look in a shorter time than you anticipate!
Understanding Your Options For Cosmetic Treatment
There are two cosmetic treatments we can recommend for patients who experience chipped teeth. One option is to restore a tooth with a custom veneer. Veneers are slender restorations that we can use to restore the look of a damaged, misshapen, or discolored tooth. The veneer only covers the front portion of your tooth structure, so minimal changes are required to provide your improvements. We can also carefully modify your tooth with a tooth bonding procedure. This is a process that does not require a custom restoration – instead, a composite material is used to change the appearance of your enamel. The biocompatible substance we use to make lifelike dental fillings is also used to perform tooth bonding.
Your Tooth Can Be Restored With An Attractive Same-Day Crown
So what will happen if an injury does affect your ability to bite and chew? To make sure you have no long-term issues to worry about, we can restore the tooth with a custom dental crown. Crowns provide more coverage, and are strong enough to absorb the pressure you place on them when you are biting and chewing. Because we have CEREC technology at our practice, we can actually have your restoration ready for you in a single appointment!
