Scheduling Cosmetic Work For A Chipped Tooth

Even if your chipped tooth is not in serious pain, and even if you feel like you can still put pressure on it, you can feel uncomfortable with the damage to your enamel. Until you act, you can feel as though your smile is no longer one you want to show up, which can be a big blow to your overall confidence. Our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office is prepared to help you if you need cosmetic dental work because of enamel damage. We may be able to restore the appearance of your tooth in just one visit when we perform a cosmetic bonding and contouring treatment to hide damage.

Does Your Chipped Tooth Make You Self-Conscious?

It can be difficult to maintain confidence in your smile if you chip your tooth. The visible effect of this problem can draw unwanted attention, and throw off your overall facial symmetry in a way that embarrasses you. Even if you feel that you can still bite and chew without working around the damage, it can be awkward to feel the difference in your tooth’s shape when you do so. Cosmetic dental work can give you back your comfort with, and confidence in, the way you look. By arranging a tooth bonding and contouring treatment, you can put this problem behind you after just one visit!

Arranging Cosmetic Treatment For A Chipped Tooth

Tooth bonding and contouring work will change your appearance by reshaping your enamel and covering a chipped space with a composite resin substance that will harden after application. When you come in for treatment, we can take care to study your tooth and determine how we can effectively restore your appearance while minimizing changes to your enamel. We may discuss the placement of a porcelain veneer instead of treatment via bonding and contouring. In some cases, we may even determine that a dental crown is needed.

We Can Evaluate Your Tooth To Make Sure You Enjoy The Right Treatment

It is important that your tooth be fully restored, as physical damage can leave you vulnerable to oral health issues that can worsen over time. To provide cosmetic support and functional protection, we can recommend treatment with a dental crown. A crown is carefully designed to fit over your tooth and keep it covered above your gum line. It can also provide bite support, so you will not have to worry about further harm to your enamel.
