A Cosmetic Dentist Can Restore Your Damaged Tooth After an Accident

Cosmetic DentistIf you have been in an accident, visit a cosmetic dentist to restore any damage that has been done to your teeth.  Millions of people get into accidents every year and teeth are often the primary victims.  The American Dental Association reports that the majority of adult tooth injuries come from playing sports.  This means that even throwing the ball around can lead to a trip to the dentist office. The key is to get the right kind of help.  When you visit, Dr. Garcia you will have access to modern dental techniques that can restore your teeth quickly.There are several ways to restore damaged teeth, and all of them can be done comfortably.  This is important because the ability to stay comfortable and pain-free will make your experience that much better.  When you first damage your tooth, call and schedule an appointment immediately.  Dr. Garcia will discuss your options with you and the time frame for restoring your tooth.Here are some of the ways a cosmetic dentist can fix your damaged tooth:
  • Dental veneers.  If you have a chip or crack, dental veneers can be used to restore your tooth.  A veneer is a thin shell that is placed onto the surface of your natural tooth.  By performing this procedure, you can keep your existing tooth while the dental veneer restores its appearance and functionality.  The procedure is extremely effective and is also used to close gaps in teeth, cover dark stains, and make teeth the same length.
  • Dental crowns.  If you get a large crack or a portion of your enamel was knocked off or removed, you may need a dental crown instead of a veneer.  A crown provides a greater level of protection because it is a cap that surrounds your entire tooth.  When you wear a crown, the damaged area is held together and protected from the elements.  Your tooth will no longer hurt, and you will be able to bite down without pain.  A crown can be made in all-ceramic or ceramic-on-metal so that it looks completely natural, ideal for front teeth.
  • Dental bridge.  If your tooth has fallen out or been knocked out, you will need a replacement solution.  A cosmetic dentist can use a dental bridge to do so by placing a crown on both sides of your missing tooth and creating a bridge between them to hold your new tooth in place.  It looks natural and doesn’t require surgery.
  • Dental implants. When you want to replace a tooth, dental implants are the best way to go because of how durable they are.  As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Garcia implants a metal post under your gums and secures it to your jawbone.  The two elements will eventually fuse together and create a new root system for the synthetic tooth to be secured to.  The result is so strong that you can play sports and eat your favorite foods without a problem.
Regardless of how your teeth become damaged, Dr. Garcia can help.  Call today for your consultation.
