Patients in the Wallington area and surrounding areas with chipped teeth may want to speak to a cosmetic dentist about ways to restore them. Typically, this occurs due to trauma or impact to the natural tooth which results in breakage. Patients are educated on the various methods of restoring their teeth. This may include the placement of dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is a material applied to the teeth, hardened, and polished to reshape the teeth. Veneers, are porcelain shells bonded to the front of the teeth to disguise the imperfection.
However, in some instances, the breakage might be too large and may affect the overall health of a tooth. Situations such as these may require a dentist at The Denture Clinic of Sutton to recommend the extraction of the natural tooth. Once extracted, patients can then use restorations such as partial dentures for replacing the teeth that were chipped.
Partial dentures for chipped teeth are not the first choice but may be necessary depending on the extent of the damage caused by the trauma. Other solutions may include dental bridges or dental implants. The team at The Denture Clinic in the Sutton and Wallington area may suggest partial dentures for patients seeking an economical solution. Partial dentures are removable and can be used temporarily until patients are ready to place permanent restorations such as bridges or implants.
