Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions for Chipped and Cracked Teeth
- Posted on: Apr 28 2015
Chipped and cracked teeth are common dental conditions. Not only do these issues mar an otherwise beautiful smile, but they can result in serious oral health issues down the road if they aren’t fixed. For these reasons, it’s crucial that you take the steps necessary to repair chipped or cracked teeth as soon as possible.
Dr. Heather Fleschler offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions to repair chipped and cracked teeth. These treatments will not only restore full health and function to your teeth, but help you achieve a dazzling, beautiful smile.
Small chips can be corrected with dental bonding. This treatment is performed by applying a composite bonding material to the surface of your tooth in layers in order to cover the chip and sculpt your tooth into a beautiful shape. This material is then hardened using a special ultraviolet light.
For more serious chips or cracks, Dr. Fleschler typically recommends a dental crown to cover your tooth and protect the chipped or cracked area from suffering additional damage or decay. Dr. Fleschler uses dental crowns made from the finest quality dental porcelain, ensuring a beautiful result that blends in seamlessly with your smile.
If the chip or crack occurs on one of your front teeth, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. This cosmetic dentistry restoration consists of thin shells of dental porcelain that get bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Your porcelain veneers procedure can help you achieve beautiful results while protecting your damaged tooth.
