Tooth injuries can leave you frustrated by your inability to comfortably bite and chew, by the loss of your confident smile, and by the possibility you need involved dental work. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we are prepared to help you by responding to the problem and putting cosmetic and oral health concerns behind you. We recognize just how upsetting physical harm to your smile can be, and we can make your care a priority. While we do so, we still need to take care of all of our patients by upholding certain in-office changes that we have made to keep our location safe from potential coronavirus risks. We can work with you to bring you in safely and responsibly so that we can offer timely support after an injury.
Will I Have To Wait To Receive Treatment For A Tooth Injury?
While we can meet with patients on short notice, we are upholding certain new practices so that we can continue to make our space safe for all of our patients and team members. In response to the risks posed by coronavirus, we have updated our approach to scheduling, and changed the way we welcome and bring in people in need of care. We have also added additional sanitation stations, and introduced technology to help purify the air and lower risks for illness.
Restoring A Physically Damaged Tooth
The type of care that you undergo will be determined by the state of your tooth when you come in for care. Because cosmetic dental work is more conservative than restorative treatment, we will recommend it when possible to preserve more of your healthy tooth structure. It is important for us to gauge the effect physical trauma has had on your oral health, bite function, and smile. If cosmetic work is not supportive enough, we can provide more protection in the form of a dental crown.
Will I Look Different After Treatment?
Even if your injury calls for restorative dental work with a custom crown, we can take care to protect your smile and oral health when you see us. For a visible front tooth, we can provide a custom porcelain or zirconia crown. These materials closely imitate healthy enamel, which means a restoration made from them can protect you without making a change to your appearance!
