Treat Tooth Damage in Timonium, MD
From chips and cracks in teeth to tooth wear and fractures, we can help. Common dental treatments that we utilize to address damaged teeth include:
Tooth crowns are caps that fully cover single damaged teeth. Dental crowns may be made of amalgamated metal or metal fused to porcelain. However, traditional metal dental crowns do not blend in with the natural smile and can stand out in the mouth. We use dental crowns made of porcelain ceramic.
Because our tooth crowns are porcelain ceramic, they can be color-matched to brighten teeth or even blend in with the smile. Our porcelain crowns also strengthen teeth after an injury or damage. Dental crowns can create a more even and stable bite and prevent further wear or damage to the tooth enamel.
Dental veneers are a longer-lasting cosmetic option than alternatives like tooth bonding treatment. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain ceramic that we bond to the front of the tooth enamel. They cover areas of tooth damage in the smile line, or on the teeth that are visible when you smile.
Like other cosmetic or restorative options, patient care is integral to long-lasting results. Patients need to stay away from staining foods and beverages directly after they receive their dental veneers to keep them bright.
Dental bonding uses biocompatible material to cover tooth chips or cracks as well as discoloration caused by dental injuries. Many patients with damaged teeth can experience discoloration caused inside of the tooth. During the tooth bonding treatment, we prepare the teeth and then mold and sculpt the biocompatible resin to each tooth.
Tooth bonding is a more economical treatment than dental veneers. Because bonding is a quicker and more cost-effective option, it benefits patients with one or two cosmetic imperfections.
