Repairing Cracked or Chipped Teeth

What do you do if crack or chip a tooth? As you get older, your teeth lose some stability and strength making them more susceptible to cracks and chips. Cracks and chips can happen to you even if you brush twice a day for two minutes at a time, and floss religiously every night before bed.

But that doesn’t mean that cracks and chips in your teeth are simply something you have to leave with. They can be embarrassing and make you ashamed to smile; in turn this can lower your self-confidence and leave you less happy with your lot in life. But dental veneers could be just the solution the dentist ordered.

At Bayou Dental Group in Monroe, LA, we are happy to offer a long-lasting and beautiful dental veneers. Veneers are an exception way to cover cracks and chips in your smile. But they actually have far more uses than just that. We can also use them to change the size, shape, and length of your teeth. They are also great if you have serve teeth discoloration that professional teeth whitening simply can’t fix. In addition, they can be used to correct minor alignment issues like small gaps in your teeth.

Dental veneers are a small shell that acts as facing for your natural tooth. They are constructed of tooth-colored material, we have many shades available so we can carefully match their appearance to those of your natural smile. That means no one has to know you had a cosmetic enhancement performed on your smile.

Dental veneers generally take three appointments for us to install in Monroe, LA. During the first appointment, we will perform a complete consultation on the subject. We will examine your teeth to ensure that you’re an ideal candidate for dental veneers and plan out your entire treatment procedure.

During your second appointment, will work to prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. That involves painlessly removing some enamel from the teeth that will receive the veneers. This process helps us ensure that your mouth has space to receive the veneers, and that the veneers will last and say securely attached to your teeth. We also take impressions of your teeth to allow a precise construction of the veneers.

Around two weeks later, you will come back for your veneer placement. We carefully check your teeth and ensure they are a precise match for the color and shape you desire. Afterwards, we will clean your teeth and prepare them to receive the veneers. The veneers are then permanently bonded to your teeth, and we perform some final contouring to make sure they are in the perfect position.

We then will have you come in for a quick follow-up visit after the veneers are placed. Will ensure they are still in the correct position and check the health of your gums. We can also answer any questions you have at this time and address any of your concerns.
