Chipped and broken teeth may be an issue for patients who have experience trauma to the smile. The adult teeth are permanent, so when they are broken in such a way, it is essential that patients work with a dental professional to seek restoration. Chipped teeth may be repaired in a number of ways depending on the size of the chip, the tooth that is chipped, and the patient’s budget.
Teeth that are exposed to strong chewing and biting forces may become greatly weakened due to breakage of the natural tooth structure. This is when Dr. Vidya Suri may suggest a solution such as a dental crown. This is made of porcelain and bonded over the tooth to cover it completely. It is extremely effective in providing an extra layer of strength and protection to a natural tooth.
Another solution is porcelain veneers. Also known as tooth veneers or dental veneers, these restorations are facings. The facings are custom-made for patients to blend with the existing teeth in shape, size, and color. They are a great way to cover not only the appearance of chipped teeth but gaps between teeth, permanent staining, and even minor misalignment.
The team of Kings Dental is proud to provide all of these options for our patients. We encourage you to take the time to learn about these solutions and work with a dental professional to determine which is best for you. Contact the team of Kings Dental with a phone call to (214) 703-6900.
