Once your tooth is chipped, you can find yourself incapable of showing off a truly confident smile. Even a small injury can significantly affect the way you look, and it can also become a potential problem for your oral health. At our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office, we can offer long-term solutions for physical injuries and other cosmetic issues. A conservative treatment option can be more effective than you think possible, which means you can have results in less time, and with fewer changes, than you think possible. You can also find that your dentist is prepared to help if you need to do something about physical damage that creates problems for your dental well-being.
What Can You Do To Restore And Protect A Chipped Tooth?
Enamel is a remarkably strong substance. This is fortunate, because it ensures we can bite and chew through many different foods without issue. Unfortunately, when damage is done to a tooth, it can leave a permanent chip or crack that affects how we look. When this harm is significant enough, it can also create problems for our oral health! Be careful not to assume that a chip is “only” a cosmetic issue. Even if you have no immediate problems, the harm can weaken your enamel and make further harm more likely to occur. After a review, we can let you know if you might benefit more from cosmetic dental work or a restorative treatment.
Improving Your Smile By Hiding A Chip Or Crack In Your Enamel
After a cosmetic procedure, you can find it hard to notice any changes in your smile, as the chip in your tooth can be carefully covered. We can perform dental bonding treatment to treat this damage, which means we can have the work done in just one appointment, and we can make changes without a permanent restoration. We also have the option of crafting and placing a porcelain veneer. This kind of restoration only covers a limited portion of your tooth structure, so it involves less work than care to secure a crown. Before recommending either procedure, we will check your tooth closely to see if you can qualify for one of these services or if you should have restorative treatment.
