Repairing Chipped Teeth
Repairing Chipped Teeth: It is rewarding to have someone smile again after repairing their chipped or broken front tooth. I love doing cosmetic dentistry.
Just this week a gentleman was so immersed in the festivities of a “rib fest” that he chipped and sheared off part of his front teeth. For the patient and my own personal satisfaction, I feel so fortunate to have the technology, the cosmetic expertise and the support staff to match precisely the colour and shape of the new tooth. I was able to quickly repair his chipped teeth. Our gentleman patient after less than an hour in the chair was able to return to his busy life with a smile.
The 3M, “Filtec Supreme”, bonded material has a wide range of shades to choose from. I am able to “sculpt” a beautiful tooth, since the bonded material is ultra violet light activated. I do very much enjoy the results of this creative and very painless process. I know that our patients do as well.
A few weeks ago, during sports, and, much to his dismay, a young boy fractured a large section of a front tooth. Once more our affordable magical restorative material let him smile comfortably, return to school the same day, alleviate his parent’s worry and concern that he would be scared for life with a “chippy” tooth.
Again, I am so satisfied when our professional materials and abilities help when an accident arises, and a front tooth is broken or chipped. It gives me great pleasure to see my patients smile comfortably again.
