Chipped teeth are very common and although the teeth are hard and durable, they can be damaged by sports injuries, trips and falls or even biting down on something hard. Chipped teeth do not usually cause serious dental health problems, although chips can make the teeth weaker, making them susceptible to further damage. However, chips can have a massive impact on the aesthetics of your smile, which can affect your confidence and self-esteem. But London serving dentists are here to help.
If you have chipped a tooth and the tooth is weakened as a result, a white filling may be used to strengthen the affected tooth and prevent any further damage. White fillings are designed to blend in with the natural colour of the teeth, meaning the filling is invisible when you open your mouth and smile. The filling procedure is safe and simple and you should not experience any pain, but if you are worried about the procedure, talk to your dentist, so they can address your concerns and help you to feel more comfortable and relaxed.
Cosmetic bonding is an incredible treatment, which can produce amazing results in minutes. The procedure is very simple and involves a dentist crafting dental material into a chip or small pit to change the shape of the tooth and repair the damage. The bonding material blends in with the colour of the natural teeth, so the join between them should be seamless. The bonding procedure is very quick and you will not experience any pain. This treatment is also very affordable and it can make a real difference to your smile, especially if you are conscious about having chipped teeth.
Veneers have been made famous by Hollywood’s finest and are an important part of any smile makeover. Veneers are basically very fine sheets of ceramic material, which are fitted over the top of the existing teeth to create a perfect smile. Veneers can be used to address problems, including chipped teeth, staining and spaces between the teeth. Before veneers can be fitted, the teeth must be prepared, which involves removing very thin pieces of the teeth to make room for the new veneers. Veneers are a very effective treatment, which can literally transform a person’s smile in a matter of hours.
