Dentist Edmond: How We Restore Chipped Teeth

Dentist Edmond: Providing Long Lasting, Beautiful Smiles

There are many habits or accidents that can cause a person to crack or chip their teeth. If you've been walking around with a chipped tooth for a while you may have asked yourself whether getting it fixed was really worth it. As a dentist in Edmond, we see a lot of different scenarios when it comes to the subject of teeth and we encourage you to think beyond just the aesthetics of a chipped tooth. (Search “dentist Edmond” to find reviews about our work on Google if you’re interested in knowing about our experience)!

Now, you may be just fine with the way you look no matter what happens to your teeth and you'd expect that your closest friends and family wouldn't look at you any differently if you had a chipped tooth. What you may want to be cautious about, however; is the underlying damage that having a chipped tooth may cause over time. Having one chip has the potential to lead to further structural damage or more cracks later on. Additionally, if the chip is too close to the pulp containing the nerve in your gums it can lead to trauma and an inability to heal which will result in the need for a root canal.

What can our dentist in Edmond do to restore chipped teeth?

Luckily, affected portions of the tooth in question can usually be easily repaired with composite fillings. These tooth colored fillings are closely matched to your natural coloration allowing our dentist in Edmond the ability to provide you with a long lasting, beautiful smile for many years to come.

Composite fillings usually only take one visit to our dentist in Edmond to be completed. Imagine walking in with a chip that you've been trying to hide and walking out with a smile you're not afraid to show off.

Veneers

Porcelain Veneers For A Beautiful Spring Smile

Get A Smile Fit For Spring

March 20th was the official first day of spring and as we ease into the warmer weather, people love to get out and about. A lot more activities ensue and inevitably that means more photos of momentous occasions will be snapped. Some people may be afraid to have their picture taken or shy away from showing their full smile due to the embarrassment of having yellow, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Our dentist can help in situations such as these. Perhaps, porcelain veneers are your perfect answer.

What are porcelain veneers?

They are thin, tooth colored pieces cemented over the front of your damaged teeth. They can be shaped and colored whiter than your current tooth color to give a brighter, more perfect appearance.

When should you consider getting veneers?

If you have any of the following dental imperfections, then veneers may be right for you:

  • Discoloration
  • Minor chips or cracks
  • Worn down teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misalignment
  • Uneven teeth
  • Abnormally short teeth
  • Overly large teeth

The process to fix all of these issues would start with a dentist visit to prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the teeth undergoing treatment to allow room for the veneers to fit. Some teeth, such as larger ones, may need to be gently filed down to an average length. The next step involves getting impressions of the teeth so that your veneers can be crafted for a perfect fit. In a short time, you will then be equipped with a beautiful smile fit for spring!

The best part? Porcelain veneers are known to be durable with proper care and they can last several years.

Our Edmond dentist is here to help. If you would like to make an appointment to see our dentist, or you have any questions, please click here.

Give The Gift Of Dentures Retained By Implants

See the difference of dentures retained by implants

Thanksgiving just ended and a lot of loved ones enjoyed spending time with each other. In addition, a lot of people had a great time indulging in tasty, culinary delights of the season, but what you may not realize is that some of the elderly crowd may not have had as much fun trying to eat for fear of their dentures falling out. If you have ever had to cut up the meat for your elderly mom or dad, then you know the struggle they deal with on a regular basis.

Have they tried many types of denture adhesives, but they just don’t do the trick? The real issue is that over time, shrinkage in the bone structure in the mouth causes standard dentures to gradually become loose and the glue doesn’t always offer relief. Grandchildren might be stuck with a mental image of grandma pushing her “teeth” out while attempting to remove stuck-on food. It’s an uncomfortable, embarrassing situation for grandma who has to take her teeth out and for guests who have to witness the experience.

There is a better solution; Dentures retained by implants!

Unlike regular dentures that slip out involuntarily, dentures retained by implants give the wearer the ability to choose removal or not! They don’t have to be placed in a glass on the night stand to get clean as they are easily removed for just for cleaning. Easy removal doesn’t mean that they aren’t strongly bonded, however; because the dentures are supported by implants placed in the jaw. The dentures sort of “snap” into place using the anchors for support and they stay put. A person wearing dentures retained by implants can actually talk and eat without their teeth moving!

Would your parents like to avoid repeating the embarrassing teeth-removing process at Christmas dinner? With Christmas right around the corner, a great gift to give your elderly loved ones would be the gift of new teeth and with that you’ll be giving them a reason to smile and so much more.
