Whether doe to an injury or cracks in teeth that worsen over time, a chipped tooth can make you self-conscious about your appearance or even make it uncomfortable to chew and bite normally.
Depending on the size and location of the chip, as well as if there are additional cracks, SmileScapes Dentistry in Alpharetta, Georgia, offers two treatment options to restore your teeth and smile.
Atlanta-Area Treatment Options for Minor Cosmetic Chips in Teeth
SmileScapes Dentistry usually recommends composite bonding for small chips that are not in an area that endures extensive pressure from chewing or biting.
Composite bonding is a very aesthetically discreet way for us to replace the chipped part of your tooth with a material mixed to match your teeth’s natural color. This composite material is then applied directly to your tooth to restore the tooth’s shape and appearance. This is a very quick and easy procedure that will immediately leave you with a beautiful smile.
Restoration of Larger Chips in Teeth Using Porcelain Veneers
For chips that are too large, need to withstand pressure from chewing or biting, or are affected by other cracks in the tooth, SmileScapes may recommend a porcelain veneer to restore the tooth.
SmileScapes will shape and mold the veneer to fit perfectly over your existing tooth, and to match the color of the teeth surrounding it in order to restore the appearance and structural integrity of the tooth that was damaged.
