Restoring Chipped Teeth
Restoring Chipped and Worn Out Teeth
Teeth are bound to chip now and then. Some of the chips are so small that you can’t feel or detect them. Chips are a concern because they cause the teeth to stain and wear out rapidly. Chipped and worn out teeth tend to break and decay more easily. Teeth grinding causes teeth to wear out. Since small chips usually go unnoticed, you should visit a dentist regularly for checkups. A professional will be able to identify even the smallest chips and offer a solution before the damage becomes extensive.Treatment for chipped and worn out teeth will be determined by how extensive the damage is.
Dental Filling And Bonding
If the chip is small, then it can be easily repaired with a filling. Bonding is done using tooth colored composite resin material. The material blends in well with the teeth and thus can be used to correct worn out front teeth. The original shape and length of the tooth can be achieved by applying composite resin.
Bonding to fix worn out and chipped teeth can be completed in a single appointment. The results are long lasting as long as you practice proper oral hygiene. After a bonding session, you will achieve a livelier, healthier smile.
Dental Caps And Crowns
If the chip is extensive, then the dentist may recommend a cap or crown to protect the tooth. Crowns and caps are custom made to resemble the tooth. They cover the damaged parts thus improving the appearance of the tooth. Crowns are made from different materials and each has its own benefits. Some of the materials used include porcelain, metal, resin and ceramic. Metal crowns have the advantage of being strong. Resin and porcelain crowns appear most identical to the natural teeth.
Before the crown is fixed, the dentist will first perform x-rays to check for any damage in the surrounding bone and tissues. They will then chip off parts of the tooth to create room for the crown. With advances in technology, crowns can be made and fitted on the same day.Depending on the extent of the damage, the dentist may recommend a root canal before the crown is put over the tooth.
How Will Dental Veneers Improve The Appearance of The Teeth?
Dental veneers can be used for front teeth that are chipped or worn out. Porcelain veneers Barrie will improve the appearance of the teeth by restoring their original natural glow. The veneer covers the surface of the tooth replacing the chipped off parts.
How Is Dental Veneer Fitted?
Before dental veneers are fitted, part of the enamel will be scrapped off. An impression is then made and sent to the laboratory to make a veneer that will fit perfectly on the tooth. Once the veneer is ready, it is then fitted using special cement like material.
Fixing chipped and worn out teeth early enough will keep your teeth and gums healthy and give you that beautiful smile that will last a lifetime. Talk to a dentist to identify your dental needs and come up with a plan to ensure that your teeth stay forever healthy.
