Need A Chipped Tooth Repaired? Call Excellence in Dentistry to Restore Your Smile.

I Need A Dentist to Fix My Chipped Tooth

Chewing on ice or hard-tack candy or grinding your teeth can cause you to chip a tooth.  Trauma to your mouth can result in a chipped tooth as well.  A tooth may chip due to underlying decay.  The enamel of your teeth is very strong, but it has limitations to how much it can endure before it breaks or chips.  Your dentist in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Nancy Rotroff or Dr. Gerard Wasselle, has several options to help restore your smile.  A chipped or broken tooth isn’t necessarily a dental emergency and may not even cause pain, but can make you feel self-conscious. Regardless, you should call your dentist as soon as possible as a chip or break leaves your tooth more susceptible to decay or infection. 

How Does My Dentist Repair My Chipped Tooth? 

Dr. Nancy Rotroff or Dr. Gerard Wasselle at Excellence in Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale will assess your chipped tooth both visually and using dental xrays to determine the extent of damage.  Your dentist will take the time to listen to your concerns and goals and  present treatment options that will produce the best result for you. Here are some of the ways your dentist on Commercial Blvd  can fix your broken or chipped teeth.

DENTAL BONDING

Small chips on your tooth can be repaired using dental bonding, or composite bonding.  This is a quick, non-invasive procedure typically done in just one visit usually without the need for any dental shots.   Bonding can be used to repair both a posterior (back) or an anterior (front) tooth. This procedure uses tooth-colored composite resin that your dentist matches to the color of your existing teeth for a natural look and a restored tooth structure. 

DENTAL CROWNS

 Sometimes called a "cap,"  dental crowns  are a permanent restoration that covers your tooth restoring both function and appearance. Crowns completely cover the remaining tooth protecting it from further damage. Crowns also improve the appearance of your tooth restoring your smile.  Unlike dental fillings where restorative material is applied directly to your tooth, a crown is fabricated in a dental laboratory and subsequently permanently cemented onto your tooth fully covering the portion of your tooth above the gum line. Select the best cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale who uses the highest quality dental materials and dental labs for a beautiful, natural-looking dental restoration. 

DENTAL VENEERS

dental veneer is a wafer-thin restoration that is bonded onto the front of your tooth to cover an imperfection. Veneers are typically used to restore a chipped or broken front tooth.  Not only can they be used for chipped and cracked teeth, but veneers can correct permanent staining, unusually shaped teeth, or even teeth that are spaced apart (diastema) or misaligned.
