How Can I Correct My Gapped or Chipped Teeth?
Wide gaps between teeth and obvious chips are two common reasons why people seek help from Dr. Brian Hivick, a cosmetic dentist in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
Fortunately, these esthetic issues are often simple to treat, and we have a number of options available so you can work with Dr. Hivick to choose the one that’s right for you.
At your cosmetic consultation at Chagrin Family Dental Care, you might discuss:
Porcelain veneers – These tooth-shaped shells of porcelain can correct an incredible array of cosmetic issues, including chips and gaps. Veneers are often the secret behind celebrities’ flawless smiles, and they are more affordable than you might think.
Bonding – This treatment uses the same tooth-colored filling material we use to fill cavities. Bonding corrects many of the same issues as veneers, but it can be more affordable for some people. Plus, it usually only takes a single appointment!
Crowns – Depending on the cause of your wide gaps or the extent of your chipping, a crown might be a good option. This versatile treatment allows us to cover the entire tooth with a porcelain shell that is designed to look identical to a natural tooth and blend in well among your other teeth.
Invisalign – While this orthodontic treatment can’t fix chips in your teeth, it might be a great choice if your wide gap is caused by dental misalignment. Dr. Hivick can examine your teeth and determine whether Invisalign is a good choice for you.
The first step is to call our Chagrin Falls dental office and request a cosmetic consultation. Dr. Hivick will examine your teeth and discuss your goals with you as well as any limitations you might have so that we can determine the best approach for correcting your esthetic flaws.
Everyone deserves to have a smile that they are proud to show off, and Chagrin Family Dental Care is thrilled when we help patients achieve this! Call today to get started.
