A damaged tooth is a detriment to your smile in many ways. Not only can a damaged tooth make your smile look bad, it may also be a danger to your oral health, depending on how it is damaged. Lucky for you, a dentist in Marietta can offer you a wide variety of options when your broken teeth need to be repaired.
One of the simplest ways to fix a damaged tooth is with a simple process called dental bonding. Most dentists can use dental bonding to cover minor damage like chipping and uneven tooth surfaces for a cosmetically appealing result.
Another cosmetic solution for many of the same minor problems is the application of dental veneers. Dental veneers can be placed on the fronts of damaged or unattractive teeth to cover the imperfections and give the appearance of flawless teeth. This can also improve color and shape to achieve the desired appearance.
Teeth that have serious damage that could cause the entire tooth to decay or become infected may require a more complete restoration. Dental crowns are the age-old solution most dentists turn to in order to protect damaged or vulnerable teeth. A crown can be placed over a prepared tooth to cover the outer surfaces of the tooth so that it will be less likely to become infected. With the tooth-colored crowns available today, this usually results in a more attractive tooth as well.
In some cases, it may not be possible for a natural tooth to be repaired and preserved. Though a dentist will do everything possible to save a tooth, when it is unavoidable, they will perform an extraction. Once the tooth has been removed, you may be fitted with a high quality restoration such as a dental implant or a dental bridge.
