Once your tooth is chipped, you can find yourself stuck with a conspicuous flaw that hurts the overall quality of your smile. Depending on just how severe the damage is, you may need to look into more than just cosmetic treatment to address this issue. At our Katy, TX dentist’s office, we help people with different concerns about dental damage. When it is appropriate to do so, we can advise you on conservative cosmetic treatment options that can improve your smile while making minimal changes to your enamel. If the damage affects your oral health and your appearance, we can recommend that you receive a custom dental crown.
Are Your Tired Of Feeling Embarrassed Over Your Chipped Tooth?
Your chipped tooth can make you unhappy with the way you look. The flaw in your appearance can draw attention you prefer not to receive, and it can make your smile asymmetrical. Even if the damage is not severe, its visibility can be a big concern. The good news is that the right treatment can take less time, and less work, than you realize. We may be able to take care of you after just one appointment if we find that you are a good candidate for tooth bonding and contouring treatment. However, if you need more than just cosmetic support, we can recommend that you use a custom dental crown to provide protection.
Cosmetic Treatments That Can Improve Your Appearance
Cosmetic dental work makes changes to your appearance through less involved care. Tooth bonding and contouring work does not call for treatment with permanent restorations, which can shorten the time needed for your care. We also provide porcelain veneers, which cover the front surfaces of teeth. Veneers only require two appointments to put in place. The restorations that we use are carefully designed to cover flaws that have made you self-conscious without making teeth look unnatural.
Why You Might Need A Crown To Protect Your Chipped Tooth
With a dental crown, we can protect your tooth without making a change to your smile. The benefit to using a crown instead of a cosmetic restoration is that it can actually improve your bite function. Because of this, you can bite and chew more easily, and not worrying about any further damage to your enamel. We can make a custom crown that effectively imitates your tooth structure and preserves the way you look.
