Tooth damage can occur because of trauma to the teeth, poor oral hygiene, and numerous other factors. It is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to avoid a more complex dental problem. If damaged teeth or broken teeth are left untreated, it may lead to infection, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. The goal is to treat the problem before it becomes a more advanced issue. At Sensational Smile, Plano, TX dentist Dr. Mark Sowell offers a wide range of restorative and cosmetic treatments for patients with damaged teeth. Dr. Sowell is a highly trained dentist dedicated to providing exceptional, high-quality dental care.
Treating Broken Teeth in Plano, TX
Dental Bonding: Dental bonding can be used to address cracked teeth, chipped teeth, gapped teeth, and discolored teeth. Dental bonding is an economical solution for a wide range of dental concerns. Dr. Sowell uses a composite resin bonding agent that blends seamlessly with your natural smile. Dr. Sowell molds and shapes the composite resin into the desired look and cures it using a special light. Once the composite resin hardens, Dr. Sowell will carefully polish the tooth, revealing a natural looking, beautiful shine.
Dental Crown: Dental crowns are made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, all-resin or all-ceramic materials. Dr. Sowell will work with you to determine which material works best for your needs. Receiving a dental crown can usually be completed in just one visit. Dental crowns act as a cap that is placed over the broken portion of the affected tooth.
Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are placed on the front and sides of the teeth and can be a long-lasting solution for damaged teeth. We use pressed ceramics like Empress, lithium disilicate like Emax and feldspathic porcelain. Dr. Sowell also has an in-office ceramic lab and a master ceramist on staff to create custom-made veneers. During your consultation, Dr. Sowell will perform a comprehensive exam to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.
