Glendale Dentist Provides Treatments For Cracked and Chipped Teeth

Written by Dr. McKay on Jan 19, 2016

It is very possible that, as your teeth age, they will accumulate some dental cracks and chips in your smile. Although it may be initially distressing to see these issues pop up, our Glendale dentists have the treatment options that you need in order to regain an attractive and structurally sound smile.

So let’s learn more about what kinds of things we can do in order to restore your smile:

1. Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a process that involves our dentists applying dental resin to the patient’s dental enamel. This resin is used to fill in dental cracks and chips, and even rebuild portion of teeth that have been chipped away. Once dental resin is in place and cured, it looks natural and stands up to the wear and tear of daily life.

2. Dental crowns

If you have a tooth that is in need of a greater level of restoration than dental bonding can provide, you may benefit from dental crowns. When our dentists place a dental crown, we make sure that the restoration matches the patient’s natural tooth, and that the bite surfaces are healthy for the patient’s smile. Dental crowns are customized to fit the patient, so we can meet your exact needs.

3. Cosmetic porcelain restorations

Another way to address damaged teeth is to cover them with high-quality dental veneers. Veneers are made of porcelain, which looks great, and holds up over time! The veneer’s placement process generally takes only a few dental appointments to complete. Once the restorations are attached, they stay in place 24/7.

Our dental team will help you determine what kinds of treatments may be right for you when you come in for a consultation. Call our Glendale dentists to get the information that you need to get started restoring your smile!
