Chipped, cracked or broken teeth can be a concern for most people. It makes people conscious of their smiles and affects the aesthetics of the smile. But dental treatments have made it easy to transform the smile through various treatments. A few of the most preferred treatments for various dental problems have been listed below.
Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They’re custom-designed to the exact shape, size, and color you need.
Veneers can be perfect for those who want to cover imperfections on their front teeth.
Dental bonding can fix many common imperfections on your teeth. It is a cosmetic procedure that uses a dental composite material, called resin, to cover any discolored, chipped, or misaligned teeth. The resin is shaped and molded onto the tooth to cover imperfections and create a new tooth surface. Dental bonding is a fast and affordable cosmetic procedure that takes only one appointment to complete.
Dental crowns are permanent caps that cover up every tooth, right down to the gum line. Crowns can be tinted to match the shade of your natural teeth. (You don’t want it to stand out, right?)
There are two main types of crowns:
1. Metal crowns: Metal crowns are silver in color. They’re sometimes used in back teeth.
2. Porcelain fused to metal crowns: These crowns are silver on the inside, but the exterior is hard tooth-colored porcelain. These crowns are a good choice for front or back teeth.
Dental bridges are an option for covering any imperfections on your teeth. A dental bridge is a dental appliance that can replace one or more missing teeth. It’s held in place by attaching to existing teeth. These teeth, called abutments, are usually the neighboring teeth on either side of the gap.
Dental bridges are cemented into place permanently. A dental bridge can restore the appearance and function of your teeth and mouth. Bridges are custom made to match your existing teeth, so they’re considered the most natural-looking option.
Orthodontics can correct several imperfections in your teeth. These imperfections may include:
- Impacted tooth
- Extra tooth
- Missing tooth
- Misplaced tooth
Gum contouring is also called gum reshaping. Our dentists may recommend gum contouring to help even out your gum line if you have an uneven gum line. Our dentists use the tools such as spacers, to gradually reshape your gums without invasive surgery.
