Trusted, Comprehensive Dentistry in Columbine

Columbine Littleton, CO Dentist

Experiencing a chipped tooth can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. However, rest assured that there are several effective ways to address this issue, and at Plum Creek Family Dentistry, we tailor our recommendations to suit your specific needs. Here are three options we may offer:

  1. Dental Bonding: For minor chips, dental bonding is often the ideal solution. This procedure involves roughening the remaining enamel on the tooth to enhance the adhesion of the composite material. The composite is then carefully shaped to fill the chip and hardened using a special dental curing light. With proper care, bonding can last up to ten years, providing a durable and natural-looking repair.
  2. Porcelain Veneers: In cases of more extensive damage or fully cracked teeth, porcelain veneers may be recommended. Veneers not only restore the appearance of the tooth but also offer strength comparable to natural enamel. The process involves removing a small amount of tooth structure to accommodate the veneer, taking impressions for fabrication, and placing a temporary veneer until the permanent one is ready. Once the permanent veneer is applied, it is securely bonded in place, resulting in a seamless and beautiful smile.
  3. Dental Crowns: For significant damage or when a large portion of the tooth is missing, dental crowns provide an effective solution. Crowns act as a protective cap, restoring the tooth’s shape, size, and function. They are particularly beneficial for preventing further damage from decay or exposed nerves, ensuring long-term oral health and functionality.
