What can I do about chipped, cracked, worn, discolored, or missing teeth?

Special thin laminates, called veneers, can often be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Stronger types of veneers made of porcelain, also called composite veneers, typically last longer because they are bonded to the tooth. learn more

 

Another process called bonding can accomplish some of the same things, but it does not last as long. Material that looks much like the enamel on your teeth is used during a bonding procedure. The material is shaped to the tooth, and when it becomes hard it is polished.

 

In addition, dental contouring and reshaping can correct chipped, cracked, crooked, or even overlapping teeth. This procedure can alter the shape, length, or position of teeth.

 

Fixed bridges and implants are often used to replace missing teeth and to correct some kinds of bite problems.

 

Crowns and bridges are the most effective procedure for replacing missing teeth or bite problems. learn more
