When injury has occurred to the smile, it can sometimes result in chipped teeth. Garland, Texas area patients who visit Kings Dental can work with Dr. Vidya Suri to learn more about solutions used to enhance the smile.
Repairing chipped teeth can be done in one of two ways. The first method is with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings custom made to cover the fronts of the natural teeth. By doing this, they provide coverage to disguise the imperfections and make the smile look beautiful again. Porcelain veneers are best for the teeth near the front of the mouth, as they cannot withstand the biting and chewing forces in the back of the mouth. These teeth may be better suited for the placement of dental crowns in the event of breakage.
Another option for the repair of chipped teeth is composite resin bonding. Composite resin is a material that is applied to a tooth, shaped into place, hardened with a specialized light, and then sculpted and polished to match the shape and size of the existing teeth. Dr. Vidya Suri provides composite resin bonding (sometimes known as dental bonding) during the same appointment as the initial consultation. Many patients choose this option to address chipped teeth because it is more affordable and faster. However, it does not last as long as porcelain veneers and this should be taken into consideration.
Both composite resin bonding and porcelain veneers are readily available through Kings Dental. We offer these and many other cosmetic treatments to enhance the smile. Many of our cosmetic services can be combined to give patients the opportunity to dramatically improve their smiles!
We strive to empower you, to make well-informed decisions about your oral health through individual consultation.Request an Appointment
