There are different reasons why people grow unhappy with their smile. While some of those problems are the result of gradually worsening issues, such as the buildup of enamel stains or worsening wear and tear, one unlucky moment that results in a chipped or cracked tooth can give you a near-immediate problem with your appearance. At our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office, we can provide solutions for you based on the state of a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or otherwise harmed. When appropriate, we can recommend dental bonding work, as this provides a conservative, convenient solution to the problem, one that we can complete in as little as one visit to our office!

A Discreet Cosmetic Treatment Can Restore Your Smile

Dental injuries can cause significant worry, but they can also be addressed in surprisingly conservative ways. For those who qualify, we can use dental bonding treatment to have the matter resolved after just one appointment! This service does not require the creation or placement of a permanent dental restoration. Instead, a composite resin substance that is biocompatible can be applied directly to the tooth structure. Upon that application, the material will harden, providing a natural look and coverage that can hide a chip or crack.

How Dental Bonding Treatment Affects Your Appearance

Your dentist will carefully evaluate your tooth to make sure dental bonding is an appropriate response to your damage. Once this is confirmed, we can move forward with treatment. The resin substance will be carefully applied in order to hide flaws like physical damage, and we will take care to ensure that your tooth has the right color and overall look to fit in with your smile and appear natural. To expedite the hardening process, we can use a special curing light to stimulate the resin material.

What Else Can Your Dentist Do To Make Your Smile More Attractive?

There are different ways in which we can help a person’s smile look more attractive. Porcelain veneers can require more time and preparatory work, but they can offer up a more durable treatment solution when we take on dental injuries and other problems. They are custom-made shells that are thin enough to require only minor corrections to the tooth structure before they are placed. We can also determine if the tooth’s structural damage requires more functional support, which we can provide in the form of a custom, lifelike dental crown.
