Chipped or damaged teeth can really distract from the rest of your smile, and this can leave you feeling deflated or embarrassed about showing off your teeth when you beam. It is easy for a tooth to become chipped through an accident, and more often than not, people do not realise that it is something that they can sort out.
At High Dental Implants Melbourne in Melbourne there are veneers and crowns available, which can boost the aesthetics of your smile and make you feel proud of your teeth once again. Which one you will need will depend on what type of damage has been done to your teeth. When you book an appointment with your dental practitioner, they will be able to fully assess the condition of your teeth and inform you about what procedure will have you smiling the brightest.
When people take care of their teeth it cannot protect them from spontaneous accidents where their teeth become chipped or broken. When these accidents happen, your dentist will be on hand to help you repair your uneven, chipped teeth with veneers. Not only do they give you an even smile, but they keep it bright. Veneers are incredibly difficult to stain as they are durable, so if you take proper care of them, they will keep your smile fresh for a long time.
Taking care of your veneers is easy. They are very similar to your original teeth therefore you need to be thoroughly brushing them twice a day. It is important to floss your teeth regularly too, as this fights against the build-up of plaque and helps to prevent tooth decay. Your veneers will need replacing at some point as they are not a lifelong resolution, but taking good care of them will make them last for a longer period of time.
When a filling cannot be used to repair a damaged tooth, a crown is sometimes used instead. They can also be used in circumstances where the patient’s tooth is badly stained, or they need to prevent a weak tooth from breaking.
To have a crown fitted you must first visit your dental professional so they can assess the damage that is done to your tooth. They will take a mould, and this will be the basis on which your crown is based. Before the crown is fitted onto your tooth you must have it filed down accordingly, so the crown is able to fit nicely over the top. It will match the colour of your own teeth, so once you have had the treatment you will not have to worry about it standing out. It will look and feel exactly like your original tooth.
A crown is secured to the tooth by using dental cement or adhesive, but if you are seeking a more permanent solution to your tooth replacement you can have your crown attached to a dental implant. This will last for an incredibly long time if it is taken care of properly, and there it is extremely unlikely for it to come loose.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
