Restoring Chipped Teeth Through Cosmetic Dentistry

Our Katy, TX dental practice offers multiple cosmetic dental services, and we are prepared to take on many different issues with a person’s current appearance. While smile issues are often the result of naturally occurring factors, or issues with accumulated teeth stains, cosmetic dentistry can be effective when you suffer dental damage. People who have experienced issues with chronic teeth grinding, suffered a dental injury, or simply show signs of excess wear and tear can feel embarrassed by chipped teeth. We can determine the best approach for restoring your appearance, and deliver care that minimizes changes to your tooth structure, and your overall treatment time.

Tooth Enamel Can Become Worn Or Chipped Over Time

Chipping, as well as general wear and tear, can occur as you continue to bite and chew food over the years. This may be due to an issue with poor dental health, but in some cases, individuals have enamel that is naturally less resistant to harm. While general wear and tear can create some concerns about the shape of your teeth, and the quality of your smile, chipping can create distracting disruptions that you are eager to address. While this is a form of damage, the problem is often not serious enough to require restorative dental work.

Correcting The Look Of Chipped Teeth

Through cosmetic dental care, we can restore the appearance of chipped teeth while minimizing the amount of work that must be done to your enamel. Your dentist may correct the shape of a tooth through contouring. Contouring involves a careful removal of material to even out a tooth’s shape or size. Chips can also be hidden through dental bonding work, where composite resin material is applied to the surface of a tooth. This work is often combined to deliver optimal results, which can be reached in just one appointment. You can also look into having porcelain veneers put on teeth. While this can take longer to complete, the procedure provides you with durable shells that can have lasting benefits for your smile.

Your Cosmetic Procedure Can Lead To All Of Your Desired Improvements

At our practice, we are prepared to help you achieve all of your smile goals, even if you feel that your goal might be out of reach. If your oral health and cosmetic issues affect several teeth, we can discuss a smile makeover. In this process, you and your dentist will work out what you want your smile to look it, and arrange the necessary procedures to address all of the flaws that are standing between you and your ideal appearance.
