Methods of repairing a chipped tooth in the Kennesaw area
When it comes to repairing a chipped tooth, the dental practice of 32 Dental in the Kennesaw area provides patients with a range of restorative solutions. Teeth that are broken due to trauma can be restored using solutions such as crowns, veneers, and dental bonding.
Dental bonding is a composite resin that is applied to the surface of a tooth, shaped over it, and polished to shine and appear as natural tooth enamel. This is the fastest method of repairing a tooth, though results will only last a few years.
When there is a small chip in the tooth that doesn't require a thick layer of protection, some patients may be able to use porcelain veneers. Veneers are very thin sheets of ceramic, which are bonded over the front of the teeth. However, these are better suited for the teeth near the front of the smile as they cannot withstand as much pressure and biting forces as dental crowns can.
Crowns are the ideal solution for broken teeth, especially those near the back of the mouth, which are exposed to stronger biting and chewing forces. Crowns are porcelain restorations that are bonded over teeth and cover all sides and offer superior protection from further damage. This is the best treatment option for molars, though they may be suggested for teeth near the front of the mouth in situations where thicker protection is necessary.
