Restoring A Chipped Tooth’s Appearance

man with restored smileIf you chip your tooth, your smile can undergo a dramatic change. Even if the damage is only superficial, it can be distracting enough to create serious concerns over the way you look. The good news is that addressing the problem can ultimately take less time, and less dental work, than you anticipate! Our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office can evaluate your physical damage and determine what kind of care might be appropriate. One way to restore a chipped tooth is to move forward with a tooth bonding treatment. This approach does not require a permanent restoration, which makes care more conservative than you might expect.

A Conservative Procedure Can Restore The Appearance Of A Chipped Tooth

What will it ultimately take to restore your chipped tooth? The “right” procedure can depend on what condition your tooth is in, and whether there are concerns about its health and ability to absorb bite pressure. With that said, we may be able to move forward with treatment that minimizes changes to your enamel and avoids the use of permanent restorations. Through tooth bonding and contouring treatment, we can carefully correct issues after physical damage to make sure that your tooth once again fits in with your smile.

What To Expect During Tooth Bonding Treatment

Tooth bonding and contouring services can make many changes to a person’s appearance. The procedure can improve the shape and size of teeth, and when necessary the bonding process can hide damage or restore enamel color. The contouring process can even out a jagged tooth and correct flaws in its shape. The bonding process covers harm to your enamel, as well as problems with its color. It also helps by adding to a tooth’s size, closing a gap, or evening out a tooth that is noticeably chipped.

What If My Tooth Needs More Than Just Cosmetic Support?

If you need to do more than just improve your appearance after a dental injury, we can discuss treatment with a lifelike dental crown. Although crowns are often thought of as a form of cavity treatment, they also help to resolve problems with physical trauma. We can take care to provide a crown that fits in with your smile, which can lead to benefits for your smile as well as your dental function and oral health.
