Dental injuries need to be properly and promptly treated if you want to avoid potential complications. Fortunately, the right procedure can ensure that you have no complications after harm affects you. At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we can recommend both restorative and cosmetic services to patients who have chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth. For those who experience more conservative issues, we can recommend cosmetic treatment to carefully respond to damage while only making minimal changes to your tooth structure. If you need to address a problem with your oral health, we can advise you on your options for restorative dental work, which may need to include endodontic treatment to address internal damage.
What To Do If You Experience A Tooth Injury
It can be hard to remain calm and collected when your tooth is aching after a physical injury, and when you see how it has been affected by damage. With that said, doing so is easier when you remember that dental treatment is available. When you set up an appointment to address the trouble with your smile, we can set up a time to evaluate the damage and see what kind of care you should receive. It may be necessary to provide more advanced treatment, but there are times when injuries can be addressed through conservative cosmetic procedures.
Restoring Your Smile Through Cosmetic Treatment
If an injury is not serious enough to compromise your oral health or make biting and chewing difficult, we can look at your options for cosmetic dentistry. This ensures that more of your natural enamel is preserved, and that your smile is restored with a more conservative treatment. With the option of tooth bonding work available to you, it is possible to see the results you want without the need for placing a permanent restoration. We can also recommend care with a porcelain veneer, a thin dental restoration that covers the front of a tooth but leaves the surrounding structure unchanged.
Addressing Oral Health Issues Created By Physical Trauma
Physical injuries that are more severe can lead to internal problems, which is something we can address through root canal treatment. To make sure that you have the support needed for your tooth after treatment, we can provide a custom dental crown that will offer lasting protection.
