Fixing Chips and Gaps Between Teeth
Small chipping and wear take a toll on the appearance of your teeth. If you have gaps and spacing between your teeth, you may even feel self-conscious about your smile.
Dr. David King, your premiere Huntsville cosmetic dentist, has solutions for you.
Cosmetic, or direct, bonding can be a great way to repair minor chipping and wear to your teeth. Dr. King uses composite resin to restore your teeth – the same material he would use for a dental filling. Composite is pliable, easy to work with, and can be custom shaded to perfectly blend with your natural tooth, making it esthetically appealing.
Cosmetic bonding can be completed in one visit, and the result is a beautiful and functional smile once again.
If your teeth are in need of more extensive repairs, porcelain veneers may be the ideal option. Fabricated from a thin layer of porcelain, veneers bond directly to your tooth, covering your natural tooth structure. They can be custom shaded so they will match your existing teeth and enhance your entire smile. They're also stain resistant, which means they won't discolor like your natural tooth does, and you won't need to whiten them.
Veneers can repair dental issues such as:
- Chipping, fractures, and wear
- Stains and discoloration
- Gaps and spacing
- Misaligned teeth
- Misshapen teeth or size discrepancies
For patients living with large gaps and spacing or crowded and crooked teeth, Dr. King may recommend Invisalign. Using clear plastic aligners, Invisalign straightens teeth with discretion and efficiency. Our patients love the freedom from traditional metal brackets that Invisalign offers, and you won't experience the restrictions to your diet or changes to your home care that braces require since the aligners are removable.
