Your smile’s appearance conveys a lot about your personality, as it plays a significant role in many of your facial expressions. If you have a bad habit of nervously nibbling on desktop items, or you improvise your teeth as a set of tools, you could suffer a minor dental fracture on one of the teeth in your smile.
If the chip is small and the damage is limited to the tooth enamel layer, the dentist at Royal Dental Spa may be able to repair it with a basic composite-resin filling. This is a special type of dental material that can be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding tooth enamel.
The process starts with a thorough examination of the chipped tooth, which might include an X-ray. It’s important to assess the extent of the damage and the overall health of the interior of the tooth. Your dentist will then discuss your numbing options. This treatment typically calls for an injection of Novocain.
Dr. Samy Samaan will then use a drill to remove the decayed tooth enamel, leaving behind a clean surface to securely cement the filling in place. Our dentist will then prepare the composite-resin material, making sure it is perfectly shaded to match the color of the surrounding tooth enamel. Once it’s been cured by a special ultraviolet light, the new filling will repair the tooth’s function and appearance for many years to come.
If you live in the Roswell, Georgia, area, and you have a chipped tooth in your smile, you should call 678-245-4952 to seek timely treatment at Royal Dental Spa’s clinic.
