Cheney Dentists Address Cracked And Chipped Dental Enamel With Restorative Treatments

Written by Dr. Collins on Oct 3, 2017

We know that you’re doing everything that you can do to protect and care for your smile. But what do when dreaded dental damage occurs despite our best efforts?

Our Cheney dentists offer a number of restorative treatments to help you reclaim a whole and healthy smile after dental damage. Keep reading to get more information about how these treatments work.

Dental bonding: using composite resin, our dental team fills in cracks, and rebuilds chipped enamel. Once the resin has cured, it is hard and stable, and it blends in seamlessly with the patient’s natural dental enamel. Dental patients love bonding because it is completed in just one appointment, it is affordable, and the color of the composite resin is completely customizable.

Personalized restorations: the dental restorations that we craft are meant to rebuild damaged teeth, while seamlessly blending in with the natural dental enamel. When we create restorations, we tailor the size, color, and the shape of the restoration to suit the patient’s smile. The customization of dental restorations is crucial not only for aesthetic reasons; it is critical that the shape and size of restorations are personalized so as to maintain a healthy bite structure for the patient. Poorly executed restorations can actually lead to premature dental wear and tear on natural teeth as well as TMJ Issues.

Porcelain veneers: these exceptionally thin dental restorations are attached to the patient’s natural tooth in order to resurface the visible tooth. Every veneer is crafted individually, and then, once the veneer is complete, it is permanently attached to the natural dental structure. Veneers are used to achieve a wide variety of dental goals: whitening smiles, closing gaps between teeth, and, of course, covering poorly texture and damaged enamel. This tried and true treatment generally takes two to three appointments complete.

No matter what the current state of your smile, our Cheney dentists are here to help you get the effective and attractive dental care that you need. Give us a call to learn more and to schedule a personal consultation!
