A chipped or broken tooth impacts not only your smile but also your ability to chew and speak with ease in some cases. Even if it's a relatively small chip in your tooth, the uneven or jagged edge can cause discomfort to your tongue, cheek, or other soft tissues.
It is relatively simple for your dentist in Van Nuys to repair a broken or chipped tooth, and you may be surprised to learn that there are several options.
- Dental Bonding: Using the same composite resin material as a dental filling, we mold and shape it to seamlessly blend with your tooth and eliminate the chip or fracture.
- Porcelain Veneers: A porcelain veneer sits on top of your tooth to conceal the chipped area and restore your tooth's natural shape. A veneer is bonded directly to your tooth and is customized to complement your smile.
- Dental Crown: Depending on the extent of damage to your broken tooth, we may recommend a dental crown. The crown covers the entire damaged tooth structure to protect it.
Your Van Nuys, CA dentist, will assess your situation to determine which restoration will best restore your tooth's beauty and function. Contact The Dental Care Center today for more information.
