Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
To learn which options will best repair your chipped or cracked teeth, please call Calgary dentist Dr. Jennifer Silver at (403) 278-1415 and schedule a consultation today. Chips and cracks in teeth may seem like a minor issue, but they are anything but. Any weakness in the structure of the tooth can provide an easy foothold for bacteria and this, in turn, can lead to issues including tooth decay and pulp chamber infection. To help prevent these potentially serious issues, Calgary dentist Dr. Jennifer Silver strongly recommends addressing chips and cracks as soon as they occur.
The process for protecting and strengthening teeth that have been damaged is often very quick, allowing for near immediate repair of most chips and cracks. Three of the most effective options offers by Dr. Silver for these issues are:
- Porcelain veneers – if damage is primarily on the front of a tooth, a porcelain veneer may offer the best solution. Sized, shaped, and shaded to fit into your smile, veneers remain one of the most aesthetically pleasing tooth restorations available
- Dental crowns – when damage is more pronounced, on teeth that carry biting and chewing duties, or on the cusp, dental crowns may be the best option. Placed over the damaged tooth, dental crowns offer the ideal combination of strength and beauty
- Dental bonding – shaped and shaded to fit into your smile for restoration of function and beauty, dental bonding is a cost-effective method of tooth repair.
Bonding will not last as long as veneers or crowns, but is easy to repair during routine office visits, making it a great option for many of our patients
There is no single method of tooth repair that will meet the needs of every person. The best way to learn which option will prove most effective for the restoration of your smile is through a one-on-one evaluation at our comfortable Calgary office.
