Chipping can affect your smile even if the damage to your enamel is not serious enough to call for restorative dental work. Your teeth may start to look chipped because of gradual wear and tear, or after an injury causes permanent damage. If the harm to your smile is not serious enough for restorative treatment, you can talk to your Mansfield, TX dentist about care with porcelain veneers. Veneers only occupy limited portions of teeth. When they are in place, they are still effective at hiding chips, cracks, and other problems that might affect a tooth’s shape or general appearance.
Even Minor Chipping Can Hurt Your Smile
All it takes is mild damage to affect the shape of a tooth. When that occurs, you can find yourself staring at a smile that appears asymmetrical, or fixating on the “minor” damage that seems to now dominate your appearance. If your smile is hurt in this way, you can find solutions when you discuss cosmetic dentistry. One approach we take to restoring the look of damaged or misshapen teeth is to restore them with porcelain veneers. With these custom shells, we can make exciting changes while only making small changes to your tooth structure.
What Veneers Do To Improve The Way You Look
With a little preparatory work, your dentist can make space for custom porcelain veneers to be affixed to the fronts of your teeth. The custom veneers that you receive will be carefully crafted so that they hide flaws that affect your teeth while still preserving your smile’s natural look. The porcelain material is strong enough to hold up against years of biting and chewing, despite the slim size of these restorations.
What Else Can Be Done To Address Chipped Teeth?
We can also arrange a dental bonding procedure to address chips and other minor flaws. Bonding procedures do not require the creation and placement of restorations, making this a shorter and less involved treatment option. Your dentist will check on the condition of a tooth before moving forward with a cosmetic procedure. If the damage is too serious for cosmetic work, we can still restore your smile with a custom dental crown.
