When a single tooth in your smile appears damaged or misshapen, it can bring down the quality of your smile, and hurt your confidence. For some people, naturally occurring flaws make certain teeth seem out of place, and interfere with the symmetry of their appearance. Other individuals lose confidence in their smile after suffering superficial damage that affects a tooth’s shape, and attracts unwanted attention. At our Rochester, MN dental practice, we are ready to provide our patients with tailored cosmetic dental care to correct these flaws. For some patients, just one appointment will be enough to make striking, long-lasting esthetic improvements.
Restoring Your Tooth Can Take Less Work Than You Expect
How much work goes into an effort to restore a damaged or otherwise misshapen tooth? Through cosmetic treatment, a conservative degree of work on your tooth structure can make a remarkable difference in your smile quality. When dental bonding work is performed, it is actually possible to change the shape, size, and color of a tooth without placing a restoration. What happens instead is that your dentist will use a composite resin material – the same material used to place lifelike dental fillings – to cover the surface of a tooth. When applied, this material can correct a tooth’s shape, hide discoloration, and even add to its size. This work can often be completed in just one appointment.
We Offer Multiple Cosmetic Treatment Options
Is dental bonding treatment the right solution for your particular smile issues? While it is often an effective strategy for helping someone feel more confident in the way they look, you may want to explore other options for treatment. We offer additional cosmetic services, including treatment with porcelain veneers, to help patients feel better about the way they look. Porcelain veneers are slender restorations that are secured to the front of teeth. Your veneers will be custom-made to fit your teeth, so that they provide the ideal changes to the way you look.
Is It Necessary To Restore Your Injured Tooth With A Crown?
Even if your tooth is harmed in an injury, you may not require restorative dental work. For superficial trauma, cosmetic work can provide an effective, conservative solution for your trouble. However, it can be important to restore a tooth with a crown if its ability to withstand bite pressure is negatively affected by damage, or if you are at risk for further harm. Fortunately, we rely on CEREC technology to produce our crowns, which makes it possible for us to have your restoration ready after just one appointment.
