Chipped, Cracked, Worn Teeth

Not being able to flaunt the smile you that you used to have or want because you have chipped, cracked, or worn teeth is a terrible feeling. Teeth can be chipped, cracked, and worn down because of different reasons. Teeth can become chipped or cracked because of trauma to the oral cavity. Biting into something that is too hard can chip or cause a crack in a tooth. Worn down teeth can be caused by bad oral hygiene. Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can also wear down teeth rapidly. There are multiple ways to fix these problems.
 
Some ways to correct these tooth problems are:

Bonding - using a tooth-colored material to cover the tooth's surface because of defects.
Bridges -  a prosthesis that is either removable or fixed to replace missing teeth.
Crowns - the cover of the tooth that goes over the root and nerves. Is natural but can be artificial.
 Veneers - a composite shell that is cemented to the front of the tooth to cover up crooked, discolored, or chipped teeth.


We understand the importance of maintaining a visually appealing smile.
