One of the many cosmetic concerns that a smile makeover can address is a chipped tooth. If a chipped tooth exists along with other cosmetic concerns such as stained and damaged teeth, then a smile makeover may be the best way to address the chipped tooth and other issues.
Smile Makeover for a Chipped Tooth
A smile makeover includes many treatment options. Many of the available options such as dental veneers, crowns and bonding are successful in treating a chipped tooth. For patients who have a chipped tooth and want to use the opportunity to completely transform their smile, a smile makeover is often a good idea.
Smile Makeover Defined
A smile makeover is a set of dental procedures that are performed primarily for cosmetic reasons. A dental professional may recommend a smile makeover to patients who are concerned with the appearance of their smile due to a chipped tooth or other issues that may cause them to feel insecure.
Of course, a smile makeover can also improve oral health, although it is not typically the primary reason for treatment. Many of the procedures such as dental crowns and dental fillings can protect teeth from poor oral health and improve appearance.
How a smile makeover can fix a chipped tooth
There are several different treatment options that may be available to patients with a chipped tooth during the smile makeover process. The recommended form of treatment may depend on the severity of the damage, the location of the tooth, the patient’s preference, and budget. Other cosmetic concerns may play a role in the best form of treatment as well. The more common ways in which a general dentist can fix a chipped tooth include dental bonding, dental veneers, and dental crowns.
Other issues a smile makeover can address
If a chipped tooth is the only concern the patient has, then the dental professional may not recommend a complete smile makeover. However, patients who desire to fix other concerns along with the chipped tooth can benefit from a smile makeover. Other issues a smile makeover can address include:
- Discolored teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Teeth misalignment
- Issues with teeth size
- Missing teeth
Other types of teeth damage may include cracks, weakened or eroded enamel, and the effects of teeth grinding. A smile makeover can also offer teeth straightening, resizing teeth, and replacing missing teeth.
When to choose smile makeover treatment
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile due to multiple cosmetic concerns, then you can most likely benefit from a smile makeover. The best way to determine if a smile makeover is right for you is to schedule a consultation visit with a dentist to learn about and discuss treatment goals and plans.
