Party In the Front: What To Do If You Broke Your Front Teeth
- Posted on: Jan 30 2018
Business in the front and party in the back may be cool when it’s pertaining to a mullet that some hipsters are starting to bring back on to the fashion scene, but when it comes to your teeth, the only party you want to see is when you’re dancing because they look so beautiful. If you recently got in an accident and have chipped, broken, or damaged front teeth, don’t any longer to call Clear Lake Dental Care.
Depending on just how bad the break is and the condition of your surrounding teeth, you will have a few options to restore your smile.
If you have a slight chip or crack in one of your front teeth, it may be as simple as repairing it with dental bonding. Dental bonding involves using a resin-like material to mold onto your existing tooth. Your dentist will then let it cure under a light.
If your teeth are still intact but have some chips in them, we may recommend dental veneers. Dental veneers are made out of a porcelain material and are placed over your existing teeth. Although dental veneers can be expensive, they are popular among our patients. This is because they can be matched to the exact, size, shape, and color of your existing teeth. This leaves you with a natural looking smile in the process.
If your teeth are completely missing or are too damage, we may recommend dental implants. Dental implants are popular among patients because they give you an almost permanent option at an affordable price. During this procedure, we will surgically place a metal rod into your gums and allow it to heal for a few months. After it has properly healed, we will then be able to put a porcelain crown over the top which will act as your actual tooth.
