3 Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments That Can Repair Chipped Teeth

Whatever the reason for your bruxism, treating this condition is the first important step. This is easily done by using a customised oral appliance or bite guard. However, you may discover that over the years, the condition has left your teeth in poor shape and in such cases, seeking the help of a cosmetic dentist can give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Here are 3 cosmetic dentistry treatments that can help repair chipped teeth:


1. Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are covers for a chipped or damaged tooth and most dentists prefer to use porcelain veneers because they provide the most realistic, durable, and attractive results. A veneer only covers your tooth’s front surface and have many benefits when compared to dental crowns, including:

  • More natural results
  • Less bulky
  • The treatment is less traumatic to your natural teeth
  • Less healthy tooth structure is sacrificed

However, it’s important to note that porcelain veneers aren’t as durable as dental crowns and during a consultation and a comprehensive dental exam, your dentist can help determine which treatment is best suited for your unique needs and requirements.



2. Dental Crowns

Do you have a badly chipped tooth? Do you experience shooting pain when you eat or drink? If so, then you may require a dental crown. A dental crown is essentially a cap for your tooth that:

  • Offers protection for your oral health
  • Enhances the appearance of your smile
  • Enhances the strength and function of a damaged tooth

Dental Crowns: The Most Versatile Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment

Depending on your situation, a dental crown can be used for a wide range of restorations. It can be used to cap a severely damaged tooth, provide a tooth restoration above a dental implant, or as a support for a dental bridge.


3. Cosmetic Bonding

This simple cosmetic procedure can be used to repair cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged teeth. During the treatment, your dentist will attach a tooth colored material (composite resin) to your teeth to repair any defects and reshape them.

While cosmetic bonding is the most cost-effective restoration technique, it does have several limitations, including:

  • A shorter lifespan compared to veneers and dental crowns
  • Greater vulnerability to chipping
  • The composite material used in the treatment isn’t as strong as your natural tooth enamel

Depending on the extent of the damage, a simple bonding procedure can repair your chipped teeth and ensure your smile looks brand new at a lost cost and in the least invasive way possible.
