Restoring A Chipped Tooth That Makes You Self-Conscious

Your smile can change in a significant way after a seemingly “minor” dental injury. If you have a single chip in a tooth that people can see, you can have a difficult time maintaining confidence in the way you look. While it would be hard to imaging someone feeling happy about enamel damage, many people are hesitant to start discussing cosmetic dental work with their dentist. What you should know is that our Rochester, MN dental office offers free cosmetic consultations to learn about services that can restore your tooth and smile. You may be surprised to find out how much a conservative treatment can do for you – we may be able to improve your appearance in just one appointment!

Even Minor Chipping Can Hurt Your Smile In A Significant Way

A smile that used to look symmetrical and healthy can look awkward and unattractive when just one tooth is altered. When people see a visible chip in your tooth structure, they can find your smile less attractive, and they can make negative assumptions about your dental health. Even if this damage is not serious enough to change your appearance in a meaningful way, it can make you unhappy to the point where you prefer to hide your smile from view! When you look into cosmetic dental work, you can learn about conservative procedures that will restore your tooth’s appearance while only requiring minimal changes.

Arranging Cosmetic Treatment For A Chipped Tooth

We offer more than one procedure for someone who wants to do something about a chipped tooth. One procedure we can recommend for someone with a dental injury is tooth bonding treatment. With a composite resin substance, we can positively change the shape, size, and color of a tooth that currently looks out of place. We can also make these changes by capping teeth with porcelain veneers. Veneers are custom-made shells that cover up flaws and give a person renewed confidence in the way that they look.

What If My Tooth Needs More Than Just Cosmetic Support?

Is your tooth still in good shape? Are you as comfortable biting and chewing after your injury as you were before? It may be necessary for us to restore your chipped tooth with a dental crown if there are concerns about its well-being. The good news is that we use CEREC technology to make crowns that imitate healthy tooth structure in just one appointment!
