Chipped teeth are a common aesthetic problem, but they pose functional issues as well. Chipped teeth offer more spaces for bacteria to hide, leading to tooth decay. They can also weaken your teeth, ultimately resulting in tooth loss. If you have one or more chipped teeth, Glendale cosmetic dentist, Dr. Donald Wilcox can provide several solutions to restore your smile to its strongest and most appealing state. Solutions for Chipped Teeth One of the most common solutions for improving the appearance and strength of chipped teeth is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells placed over the front of your teeth that look and feel like natural tooth enamel. Dr. Wilcox offers a wide range of porcelain veneer options and can help you choose the very best solution for your smile. Another wonderful solution for chipped teeth is porcelain dental crowns. Crowns, commonly known as “caps,” are placed over your existing teeth to both strengthen and beautify your smile. Both dental crowns and porcelain veneers are shaped, sized, and colored to match adjacent teeth, allowing either option to provide you with the seamlessly beautiful smile you were born to have. Dr. Wilcox will carefully examine your teeth and help you determine which solution is most likely to provide you with the function and appearance you deserve.
