With timely care, we can restore the tooth so that you have no oral health issues and feel good about your smile!
Did A Hard Halloween Candy Leave You With Chipped Or Cracked Enamel?
One bite into a piece of hard candy can leave you with a dental injury that requires attention from a professional. As hard as your enamel might be, the wrong angle and degree of force can leave you with a chip or crack, or even more serious damage, the will need to be evaluated and treated. Fortunately, our practice is prepared to handle this kind of problem. It may call for restorative dental work, but in some cases an injury can be resolved through cosmetic treatment that is more conservative. We should note that in the event the damage is serious, or if you find yourself with significant discomfort, we can make sure you are seen promptly, as we offer emergency dental services.
Arranging Treatment For Your Vulnerable Tooth
After you come in for care, we will look at your tooth to see what kind of support you require. A less severe injury can be addressed through cosmetic dental work. Cosmetic care can hide chips and cracks while making changes that let you maintain confidence in how you look. We can provide coverage with a porcelain veneer, or we can explore the advantages to dental bonding and contouring work. When more protection is needed, a partial crown or full crown can be used to take care of you.
