Damaged teeth are more than a cosmetic concern. While a chip or crack may be the source of an unsightly blemish to the aesthetic of your smile, it is essential to know that it could lead to more complex dental health concerns.
Owings Mills, MD family, and general dentist Dr. Suman Chibb offers cosmetic and restorative solutions for preventing further damage to your smile.
Damaged teeth can cause a range of more complex dental concerns:
- Pain or sensitivity in teeth
- Tooth decay
- Root canal infection
- Tooth loss
Repairing Damaged Teeth
Whether you have a surface crack, chip, or broken tooth, you should seek treatment from a well-trained dentist as soon as possible. Dr. Chibb and our dental care team offer minimally invasive procedures that can restore the structure and integrity of the damaged tooth, preventing further damage.
- Dental Bonding– Bonding is an economical cosmetic treatment that can restore the appearance of the tooth and seals out potential decay. The special bonding material is applied directly to the affected tooth. Dr. Chibb molds and shapes the material to match the shape, color, and size of your natural smile. The bonding is then hardened and shined for a natural and beautiful result.
- Dental Crown– A dental crown is like a cap for your tooth. The dental crown is custom-designed out of dental-grade porcelain and fits over the damaged tooth for a permanent and beautiful restoration. The dental crown will look like a natural tooth. A dental crown can help to support the structure of the natural tooth and can help prevent the need for a tooth extraction.
- Mouthguards– Custom-fit sports mouthguards are a great preventative measure to prevent tooth damage. Sports-related injuries are a common cause of tooth loss or tooth damage. Protect your athlete’s mouth with a custom-designed mouthguard made to fit comfortably and securely during play.
