How A Chipped Or Cracked Tooth Is Restored

Once a tooth is chipped or cracked, it can be difficult to hide this flaw. This can leave you with an embarrassing issue that hurts the quality of your smile, and it can also create problems for your oral health. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can recommend services that will help you resolve this issue while taking care to minimize the overall changes to your enamel. One option is to perform cosmetic dental work that carefully reshapes and restores the appearance of your tooth. When appropriate, we can also recommend that you receive a dental crown to provide protection.

Reaching Out To Arrange Treatment For A Dental Injury

If you fail to take a tooth injury seriously, there are complications that you can experience over time that make treatment more difficult. The damage can worsen, or your tooth can become infected. The good news is that with prompt care, you can put an end to your discomfort and make sure your smile is more attractive. In some cases, treatment can be completed in just one visit while still providing lasting support for your tooth and smile.

Planning Cosmetic Work To Restore The Appearance Of A Chipped Or Cracked Tooth

Depending on the severity of your injury, we can provide recommendations for cosmetic dental work. Both tooth bonding treatment and porcelain veneers help with problems concerning chips, cracks, and other minor damages. A bonding procedure makes it possible for us to restore the tooth’s appearance without a permanent restoration. It also makes a one-visit treatment possible. With a porcelain veneer, we can provide long-term support by carefully reshaping and restoring a tooth with a thin, durable restoration that covers the front surface of the tooth.

Arranging Restorative Treatment With A Dental Crown

If your tooth needs more support after an injury, we can provide a custom dental crown to keep it safe. The crown is carefully made to cover a tooth above the gum line, which provides protection as well as support for your bite. We take care to prepare your tooth and carefully measure it so that your restoration will stay secure. Because options for lifelike restorations are available, we can provide stability and support while preserving your appearance.
