Emergency Tooth RepairAccidentally chip, crack, or break a tooth? No worries! If you still have the broken remnant, bring it to your appointment and, in most cases, it can be repaired with dental bonding. Certain conditions such as autoimmune disorders and diabetes can contribute to a higher risk of a broken tooth. Common causes of damaged teeth are:
- Chewing ice.
- Biting on plastic.
- Giving birth.
- Sporting activities.
Replace Silver FillingsDo you have old metal fillings that clash with the white of your smile? You can get them replaced at Clocktower Family Dental! Also known as amalgam dental fillings, silver fillings are comprised of a few different metals combined into one. They are known to be long-lasting, but are incredibly easy to spot. One of the most common reasons why a silver filling must be replaced is in the case of a broken or cracked tooth which has such a filling.
Test Drive Your New Teeth With a Smile Trial!At Clocktower Family Dental, we know just how important our smiles are to our everyday life. No one should be afraid to smile during family photos or at social events. Speak to our dentists about your smile goals and we can work with you on designing the bite that you’ve always wanted. With dental bonding, you can try the sort of smile that you want while still leaving room for adjustments before you commit to your new smile. Digital imaging is perfect for this sort of procedure, as it allows you to see mock-ups and apply your own input during the process.
Bonding vs. VeneersWhile both bonding and veneers are cosmetic and alter the shape, size, or symmetry of your smile, there are some clear differences that will affect our dentist’s recommendations for your needs:
- Dental Bonding: This procedure is the process of applying a new resin directly onto a tooth and hardened with a special light. Our dentist can shape and polish it to complete the overall desired look.
- Dental Veneers: These water-thin porcelain fixtures are placed over your teeth to give the desired look. They can cover one tooth or multiple! However, it may take a couple of visits for these to be completed.
