Did you know that many people associate a visibly chipped tooth with lower than average intelligence? We know that this an impression no one wants to give, so we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can cover or fix chipped teeth. When you visit the dentist in Alpharetta, ask about the many budget-conscious options, such as:
Dental Bonding for Chipped Teeth
Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures for chipped teeth we offer in Alpharetta. This involves a composite material that is applied to the tooth to create the appearance of a full tooth. It can be dyed and shaped to match your tooth perfectly.
Veneers for Chipped Teeth
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front of a tooth from the gum down, and are often used to cover the appearance of chips. Porcelain veneers are also used to cover a variety of other cosmetic concerns.
Crowns for Chipped Teeth
Dental crowns are caps that cover the entire tooth from top to bottom on all sides, and may be recommended by your cosmetic dentist in Alpharetta if the chipped tooth is in danger of becoming more chipped. The dental crown will keep the tooth from coming into contact with hard objects, food, or other teeth.
Why Fix Chipped Teeth?
Knowing that we can fix chipped teeth is excellent, but do you know why chipped teeth are so important? Teeth are actually made up of many layers, and at the inner most layer is the tooth pulp. If this pulp is exposed when a tooth is chipped, it can lead to infections, painful nerve damage, and more.
