Chipped and Cracked Teeth with a Tale to Tell

Fortunately, there are plenty of cosmetic dental options that can restore your teeth to their original luster.

Dental Bonding can Fix the Issue

Dental bonding is a fast, cost effective way to give you your smile back. We use composite bonding agent, which is the same stuff we use for tooth colored fillings.

Composite is a mix of glass, plastic, and resin that is mixed to match the color of your teeth exactly. It's about the consistency of putty when we apply it to your tooth.

We make sure it is molded to match to contour of your tooth and once it's perfect we will set it in place with a UV light.

Veneers are a Fantastic Option

Think of veneers as a "new front" for your teeth. When your teeth are plagued by spacing issues (too little or too much), chips, cracks, color problems, and even alignment problems, veneers can provide a solution.

Typically made of porcelain, veneers fit over your existing teeth and are able to give them the exact aesthetic that you desire. Long lasting and great looking, porcelain veneers are able to provide a solution to most aesthetic issues.

Crowns can Come in Handy

When a tooth has been structurally damaged and will no longer be able to function well in your mouth, often we will be able to save it with a crown.

Like veneers, crowns fit over your existing teeth (more fully than a veneer) and can provide you with a stable tooth substitute for along time.
