How a Cosmetic Dentist Can Fix Your Chipped or Cracked Teeth

How a Cosmetic Dentist Can Fix Your Chipped or Cracked Teeth from All Smiles Dental Center in San Antonio, TXA cosmetic dentist can help you regain your dental health by fixing your damaged teeth. Dental damage can happen anywhere, at any time. Getting immediate help can prevent complications. Knowing how your dentist can fix your damaged teeth can prepare you for your next appointment. Here are the ways your cosmetic dentist can repair your cracked or chipped teeth.

Dental implants

These restorations do not only cover the damaged teeth. Dental implants replace the dental roots and crowns at the same time. The cosmetic dentist places titanium rods into the jawbone underneath the gums. The rods serve as dental roots and stimulate the jawbone. This allows for the delivery of nutrients to the implant sites, making the jawbone thicker. It also makes the fusion of the implants and rods stronger.

The process of getting dental implants will take about nine months, depending on how well the patient heals. The cosmetic dentist will create a treatment plan if the patient qualifies. Before the procedure starts, the dentist will anesthetize the area and provide the right type of sedation. Placing the titanium posts will follow. Connecting the abutments will follow after full recovery from the surgery. Weeks later, the artificial crowns will go on the abutments.

Dental bonding or filling

A small degree of dental damage can make a patient a good case for a cosmetic dentist. For cracks or chips in the front teeth, the dentist will use dental bonding. There will be tooth-colored composite resin that can blend well with the neighboring teeth. The procedure will not need a local anesthetic. The cosmetic dentist will shape and polish the material.

Porcelain veneers

These are popular dental restorations from a cosmetic dentist. The shells are custom-fit. Each one covers the affected teeth. All issues can receive a non-invasive correction through veneers. The cosmetic dentist will make sure that the shells match the color of the natural teeth.

Shaving a thin layer of enamel in the front teeth will roughen the surface and give enough space for the veneers. This will prevent a bulky appearance. These shells can restore the dental appearance and support dental health. Dental veneers can also protect the teeth from future damage. Many patients prefer these restorations because of their durability and stain resistance.

Dental bridge

A traditional dental bridge can be an ideal restoration for missing teeth. The natural teeth on both sides of the dental gap will serve as abutment teeth. The cosmetic dentist will place custom dental crowns over the abutment teeth. The artificial crown will suspend over the dental space through the bridge connecting the two abutment teeth.

Dental crowns

The cosmetic dentist will grind down the damaged crown after administering a local anesthetic. Doing so will make the artificial crown fit over the target tooth. The dentist will match the color of the crown to the color of the natural teeth. Once the crown is ready, the dentist will cement the crown on the tooth. The crown will restore, protect, and strengthen the tooth.
