Sometimes taking care of your smile means having to make difficult decisions such as when to have an infected tooth removed. Other times, it might not be as clear that treatment is needed to begin with. Indeed, nothing is more important to prioritize than your oral health, but this statement does not mean that other concerns such as cosmetic blemishes should be completely ignored. In today’s blog, your North Hollywood, CA dentist takes a look at what to do in the event of a cracked or chipped tooth, as well as how dental bonding and contouring can help.
When Damage is Surface-Level
By now, you are likely aware that there are multiple factors out there that influence your smile’s health. The unfortunate reality is that there are certainly more with a negative influence than there are with positive influence. As such, it is extremely important to stay on top of an at-home preventive dental routine.
What this plan fails to consider, however, is that accidents can occur at any given time, and similarly, their severity level can vary. In cases such as these, you must first determine if the issue is a serious health concern such as a dislodged tooth or significant bleeding, or if it is merely a surface-level issue.
Once you have determined that the issue is on the surface, you can then proceed with seeking cosmetic dental treatment. Indeed, cracks and chips that do not influence your oral health may not cause infections, but that does not mean they aren’t an eyesore for you to look at. To learn more about what your options may be and how we can help, give our team a call today.
When it comes to dealing with surface-level discrepancies such as chips or cracks, nothing is better at evening out your grin than dental bonding and contouring. Indeed, this process involves applying a composite resin material to the affected sight. We will then contour or shape the material to establish an even appearance and mimic the natural textures of your teeth.
One of the major benefits that dental bonding has to offer is that the material we use can be shade-matched to adhere to the natural hue of your grin. Indeed, this allows for more discreet treatment. Give our team a call to learn more today.
A Seamless Appearance
With discreet treatment, you can expect to enjoy a rejuvenated grin and a happier appearance than you would by sporting a noticeable smile blemish. What’s more? This process allows for a heightened level of confidence and sense of self.
