Fresno Dentists Discuss Restoring Chipped Teeth

cosmetic_dentistry_fresnoWhile brushing and flossing can help prevent the majority of dental health issues that can threaten your smile, cosmetic blemishes can still mar your teeth in spite of your best efforts to prevent them. Tooth stains, which can result from the food you eat, are arguably the most common cosmetic dental complaint. However, chipped teeth are common as well, and while professional tooth-whitening can erase most typical tooth stains, repairing a chip can require a bit more finesse. Fresno cosmetic dentists, Dr. Alex and Claudia Denes, have extensive experience repairing and restoring smiles from all sorts of dental damage. Today, they explain the simplicity of correcting minor chipped teeth using one of several cosmetic dental procedures.

A Minor Touchup                                          

White composite resin is a diverse material that has many uses in dentistry today. Because it can be dyed to precisely match the color and hue of your natural teeth, composite resin provides discreet solutions to common, minor dental problems, including innovative dental fillings. Its discretion also makes the resin an excellent choice for cosmetic touch-ups. For instance, if a corner of your tooth is chipped, the resin can be bonded to your tooth and sculpted to the desired shape. After it is carefully molded, Dr. Denes will use a special curing light to harden the dental bonding, then polish it to match the gleam of your natural tooth enamel.

A New Face for Your Smile

If you have more than one tooth that requires a cosmetic touch up, you may consider porcelain veneers rather than dental bonding. Made from strong dental porcelain, the wafer-thin veneers are fabricated to match the shape of your teeth, then bonded to the fronts of unsightly teeth to provide a new, blemish-free face for your smile.
