Have you accidentally chipped one or more teeth? Chipped teeth can happen to anyone, and there are several treatment options available to fix them. Dr. Benjamin Stevens fixes chipped teeth with dental crowns, dental implants, or porcelain veneers at Beautiful Smiles in Greenwood, Indiana. Learn more about each of these cosmetic and restorative solutions below. If you have any specific questions about these treatments, feel free to ask Dr. Stevens or a member of his team at your next dental visit.
Dr. Stevens offers same-day dental crowns to protect teeth and restore their appearance and function. CEREC same-day crowns are ceramic restorations that use CAD/CAM technology and a milling unit to create a custom-made crown in one appointment. Dental crowns are a great solution to repair chipped teeth or a broken tooth. As a result, crowns have become one of the most common restorative dental treatments today.
Cracks in chipped teeth that extend into the gum line can often only be repaired with a tooth extraction. A dental implant can be used to replace the natural tooth. Dental implants are one of the most stable restorative solutions as they are inserted into the jaw bone.
Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain coverings that are secured onto chipped teeth to repair them. They can also last up to 30 years with proper care, so they won’t need frequent replacement. Dental veneers that use porcelain are also stain-resistant and reflective, which means they look like a natural tooth. Porcelain veneers can be color-matched to natural teeth to blend in flawlessly.
