Doing Due Diligence on Damaged Teeth

Posted .

When you have broken, chipped, cracked or discolored teeth it may seem like you will never smile again. Never fear! We can help you at Letitia M. Williams, DDS, LLC.

Teeth can become damaged at any time and any age. Not only does it happen via violent contact to your mouth, but there are plenty of less exciting reasons as well. The most common is bad oral hygiene—not taking care of teeth that then become damaged by decay and gum disease. Also, poor eating habits and bad nutrition. Less common but still a factor is family genetics. It’s possible that an unknown but underlying dental issue has gone undiscovered. No matter the reason, addressing tooth damage now helps to avoid serious complications to your oral health in the future.

We of Letitia M. Williams, DDS, LLC, have highly experienced dentists trained in cosmetic dentistry to help you choose the appropriate option for treatment and fix your worn or damaged teeth. We can also help you understand the underlying issues that have caused your teeth to be susceptible to damage in the first place, and if it is a condition that has occurred over a period of time.

These are some of the treatments we provide for damaged teeth:

-Covering or capping your damaged tooth/teeth with dental crowns.

-Fillings to top off the holes made in teeth by decay.

-Porcelain veneers help to span ugly gaps in teeth, discoloration, cracks, and chips.

-Tooth bonding fixes cracks and chips in teeth. It also realigns a bite that has become misaligned.
