Dental damage may seem daunting at first, but our Tinley Park restorative dentists actually offer a number of treatments that can help you reclaim an attractive and healthy smile. In today’s article we are going to be discussing what types of treatments might be appropriate for you if you should suffer from dental damage.
If your teeth become cracked, chipped, or infected, our dental team will take a look at your smile to assess the extent of the damage. Depending on what we find, you may decide to move forward with:
This treatment involves our dental team repairing your smile with custom-shaded dental resin. Dental resin, once cured, is strong and natural looking. This treatment takes only one appointment to complete, and it is completely non-invasive!
A dental crown is used to rebuild a tooth that has been compromised by damage or infection. Every crown that we create is designed to match the patient’s natural dental color, overall tooth shape, and overall smile aesthetic. Crowns are made to stand up to your daily routine, so once the crown is in place, you can resume your normal routine.
Lumineers are used to cover a patient’s natural dental enamel with fresh, clean, and natural looking porcelain restorations. Lumineers are used to restore and cover damaged enamel, and they are used to achieve a variety of aesthetic results. Many people choose Lumineers when they want to repair teeth while simultaneously straightening their smiles/closing gaps between teeth/improving the balance and proportion of their smiles.
These treatments can be used independently to achieve results, or you may choose to combine treatments for enhanced aesthetic and functional results. Our Orland Park dentists will help you make these important decisions. Please give us a call when you are ready to reclaim a healthy and whole smile!
