In a perfect world, each of your priceless teeth would stay healthy, strong, and brilliantly white throughout your life. The truth is, however, that most of us will need to restore a tooth at some point.
Here are 7 different options for repairing a damaged tooth:
Bonding is used to repair minor cosmetic issues – small chips, cracks, discoloration, and spaces between teeth.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.
Modern white fillings are strong and inconspicuous. A minimally invasive filling leaves you with more of nature’s optimal dental material — your own enamel and dentin.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are commonly called indirect fillings. A less invasive inlay or onlay may be used instead of a traditional filling or, in some cases, a crown.
A crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, stability, and function.
Soft Tissue Grafts
Gum recession puts teeth and underlying bone at risk. Soft tissue grafting can cover the exposed root of a tooth to avoid further damage. Gum surgery is also completed for cosmetic reasons such as reshaping a gumline to eliminate a “gummy” smile.
A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a dental bridge or arch.
