Many people neglect chipped teeth because they are uninformed of the dangers of not having them repaired or because they are concerned about how restored teeth would appear or feel.
Our absolute dedication to excellence in dental care here at Cascade Dental, guarantees that patients receive the most excellent care possible. With nearly one in every ten dental patients requiring assistance with a fractured tooth, dentists have blamed gourmet popcorn for the increase in tooth injuries. Whatever the cause of the increase in broken or chipped teeth, they can be a serious concern. A chipped tooth may appear trivial, but it may conceal more profound tooth injuries.
Dental problems can make you feel insecure when looking for work, going on dates, or meeting new people. While some people believe that most dental issues are solely cosmetic in nature, they are actually linked to your general health. For example, the strength of your teeth and gums might indicate how many healthful foods you consume. If you have a chipped tooth, you should see a Cascade Dental dentist as soon as possible to avoid further damage. Depending on the size and location of the chip, your dentist will decide on the best course of treatment.
Dental Bonding for a Chipped Tooth
Composite bonding is a simple, rapid, and cost-effective tooth repair method. Bonding can repair a gap, malformed teeth, rotting, discolored, or chipped teeth. Bonding is a long-lasting treatment for tooth problems that can last up to ten years. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you should know that bonding is a minimally invasive and low-discomfort treatment. In addition, anesthesia will not be required during the bonding procedure unless it is used to treat cavities.
Your Cascade Dental dentist will roughen your teeth before applying a small amount of conditioning liquid. Then, to repair the chipped tooth, they will apply and shape putty. Once the link between the putty and the tooth dried, it will be polished and sculpted to fit the rest of your smile. You might be in and out of the dentist’s chair in no time, with your smile and bite restored.
