Your tooth hurts, and it looks like it suffered some damage. Dental injuries can be upsetting because they can be particularly painful, and because they can cause big problems for your smile. If you find yourself with a chipped tooth, or one that has visible cracks, know that your New York, NY dentist’s office is ready to help. In many cases, a chipped tooth can have its appearance restored through cosmetic dental care. If your dental injury is more serious, and your tooth needs more support, a lifelike dental crown can be made in our in-house dental lab

Using Cosmetic Dental Work To Cover Up Chips And Cracks

Cosmetic treatment can discreetly hide chips, cracks, and other superficial flaws that result from an injury. When your tooth’s shape is altered, a bonding and contouring treatment can be performed to cover that unhappy change. Contouring work can even out a tooth, and hide a small chip. By applying a special resin material to its surface, your dentist can hide flaws. In addition to restoring a chipped tooth, this can be done to hide cracks, and even restore the color of your tooth if it changes after trauma. Porcelain veneers can also be constructed for this purpose. Once placed, a custom veneer can hide any signs your tooth was injured, and give you back your confident, attractive smile.

Recognizing The Difference One Cosmetic Procedure Can Make For Your Smile

One cosmetic procedure can help you make big changes to the way you look. You and your dentist can plan a procedure to make sure your smile seems even, healthy, and bright. Many people who want to enjoy a dramatic smile improvement can arrange the placement of porcelain veneers over unsightly teeth, which can effectively result in a smile makeover.

What If My Tooth Is Seriously Injured?

Minor tooth injuries can be dealt with through cosmetic dental work. However, this approach can be less appropriate when there is a concern that your tooth structure might be in jeopardy. A single-visit crown can cover your tooth, offering protection against further harm. You can also look forward to cosmetic support, as this custom restoration can help you improve your smile!
