Answer Key

  1. True. When you chip a tooth, even if the damage isn’t substantial, there is a still a risk that the inner tooth structure could be exposed to bacteria. Over time, tooth decay and even infection may form, leading to pain and complications for the health of your smile. Always schedule a visit if your tooth sustains injury!
  2. True. Using cosmetic bonding, we repair damaged teeth in a single visit. We use the same composite resin employed in our tooth-colored fillings. The material is applied to the tooth in several layers, we then sculpt the tooth as it cures under a light. The entire process only takes one visit.
  3. True. The material use is shaded to blend with the tooth structure. We also thoroughly shade the tooth structure to help ensure a more natural appearance.
  4. True. After treatment, you can take steps to protect your smile. For example, you can wear a mouthguard when playing sports. You can also brush and floss daily to improve oral health and reduce the risk of decay and damage. If you have any questions about repairing a tooth, then contact our team today.
