Addressing Problems With A Chipped Tooth

If you chip your tooth, you can find yourself stuck with a visible flaw that you would prefer to hide. The right approach to hiding that flaw can vary. Some situations call for restorative dental work, as the enamel damage can put your tooth at serious risk. However, it is possible that you can move forward with a more conservative cosmetic procedure to hide the damage and improve your appearance. Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office provides different services that can correct problems with enamel damage. We even provide complimentary cosmetic consultations that let you learn more about how different services can help you!

Are You Embarrassed By A Chipped Tooth?

A chip in your tooth can draw more unwanted attention than you are comfortable with, and it can create potential concerns around your oral health. Your immediate response may be to try and simply hide the chip from view. This can lead to frustration and discomfort, but it can also mean you are ignoring a problem that will worsen in time. Rather than try to manage the embarrassment and hide the problem on your own, you should let your dentist take a look at the tooth in question and see what you can do about the damage.

Using Cosmetic Treatment To Improve Your Smile

Physical damage is something that many people hide through cosmetic dental work. At a consultation, you can learn about the different solutions to this problem. Tooth bonding treatment can provide a swift solution – because this approach does not require a restoration, it can be completed in as little as one visit. We also have the option of hiding a visible chip with a custom porcelain veneer. Veneers take longer to create and place, but they are a more durable solution.

Capping A Tooth With A Custom Dental Crown

In situations where we have to worry about your oral health as well as your appearance, we can provide a custom dental crown that offers important support over time. You can bite and chew without difficulty, and you can show off an attractive smile. Our office provides restorations that are ready in just one appointment. CEREC technology lets us digitally measure and design the crown before we produce it with an in-office milling machine.
