Cosmetic smile problems are not always a consequence of dental damage, or discoloration. Sometimes, a person’s appearance will be affected by a tooth – or teeth – with an unusual shape or size. An undersized tooth can be particularly frustrating. The smaller size can create the appearance of a gap between teeth. This problem can also lead to unwanted attention, as it can interfere with the symmetry of your appearance. With a dental bonding treatment, your dentist may be able to make valuable esthetic changes over the course of a single appointment! It should be noted that if your undersized tooth interferes with your bite function, the right approach may be to place a dental crown over it.
How A Single Dental Appointment Can End With Great Cosmetic Improvements
A dental bonding treatment makes it possible to make cosmetic improvements without waiting for a lab-made cosmetic restoration. What your dentist will do is apply composite resin, which is also used to make dental fillings, to your tooth. That application process can address issues with a tooth’s shape, color, and size. A bonding treatment can make your undersized tooth match its neighbors, and you can have your desired change after just one visit!
Can A Poorly Sized Tooth Interfere With Your Ability To Bite And Chew?
If you have to adjust your biting and chewing habits around an undersized tooth, the right approach may be restorative dental care. Fortunately, your dentist has E4D technology in the office, so the placement of a dental crown can occur in just one appointment. Once a crown is set in position, you can enjoy a real improvement to your appearance, while also finding it easier to bite and chew.
