Cosmetically Treating Chipped Teeth

A chip in your tooth does not have to be severe to be noticeable. Unfortunately, one small flaw can change the way you look significantly, and that can make you understandably self-conscious. Are you simply stuck with a smile that you are not proud to show off, or is there something you can do to address this problem? Our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office can help you deal with this type of damage. Through the right cosmetic dental procedure, we can take care of your smile by making conservative changes to your tooth structure. What you can find is that your appearance can be dramatically improved in as little as one visit, and without the placement of a permanent restoration.

Chipped, Worn Teeth Can Hurt Your Smile

Whether you chip a tooth after an accident, or just experience minor chipping and other damages as wear and tear worsens, you can feel that your smile is no longer one that you are eager to show off if you have visible damage. An injury does not have to negatively impact your oral health in order to hurt your smile. With that being said, be careful not to assume that a problem is only cosmetic. That “minor” injury can leave you vulnerable to further harm, or to bacterial infection that hurts your oral health.

Restoring Your Smile Through Tooth Bonding Treatment

Through tooth bonding treatment, we can carefully restore a tooth’s shape, size, and condition without permanently affixing a restoration. Instead, we can cover chips and other problems with composite resin, which will harden and permanently adhere to your enamel. After this is done, you can show off a better, more confident smile, one that no longer looks awkward due to visible damage. This takes less time than treatment with porcelain veneers. However, cosmetic treatment with veneers can provide more durable improvements.

Be Careful Not To Ignore A Serious Injury

Are you sure your tooth is still in good health? Ignoring a chip, or any other type of damage, can have consequences at a later date. If you do not do something about the problem, it can worsen, which can change what kind of treatment you need. Too much wear and tear, or the onset of an infection, can make it necessary to perform more involved restorative dental services instead of cosmetic treatment.
