How Dental Veneers Can Restore The Aesthetics to Your Smile

Are you suffering from a broken or damaged tooth? From high quality dental veneers to dental crowns, our Calgary dentists can quickly return the function and aesthetics to your smile.

While there are certain steps you can take to lower your risk of dental emergencies, oral injury can happen to anyone, at any time.

Neglecting your oral health or ignoring a dental injury can lead to:

  • Tooth loss
  • Difficulty eating and speaking properly
  • Higher dental fees and more extensive treatment
  • Pain

Cracked or Broken Teeth: What You Need To Know About This Dental Issue

The enamel that covers your teeth is the strongest tissue in your body, but it can still become broken or cracked. Your teeth may become damaged for various reasons, including:

  • You suffered a traumatic fall, crash, or blow
  • They’ve weakened due to tooth decay or cavities
  • Consumption of certain foods such as hard candies, soda, alcohol, or ice
  • You clench or grind your teeth
  • Bad dental habits

Because tooth decay or cavities can weaken your teeth, making them more susceptible to damage and breakage, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly to ensure any issues are caught and treated early.



5 Types of Cracked Teeth

There are several different types of cracked teeth that patients should be aware of. Depending on the type of crack or damage, your dentist will advise on the best course of treatment.

  1. Cracked Tooth: A cracked tooth means that a crack has extended from the chewing surface vertically towards the root. In this case, early diagnosis is key to saving your tooth because if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss.
  2. Fractured cusp: This refers to a situation where a piece of your tooth’s chewing surface has broken off. Typically, this doesn’t cause much pain.
  3. Craze lines. Craze lines are tiny cracks that only affect your outer enamel. They are shallow, cause no pain, and are typically of no concern beyond aesthetic issues.
  4. Vertical root fracture: These cracks start in the root of the tooth and extend to the chewing surface. They show minimal symptoms and are often only discovered when your surrounding bone or gum becomes infected.
  5. Split tooth: A split tooth often occurs as a result of a long-term cracked tooth. This cannot be saved intact, which is why regular visits to your dentist are so important.

What is The Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth? Quality Dental Veneers in Calgary

When selecting among the different ways to solve a dental problem, knowledge is power. While you can count on your dentist to advise you, it is up to you, as the patient, to make the final decision.

This means that you must understand your different options and their advantages and disadvantages. If you have a chipped or broken tooth, your likely repair options are a composite resin or porcelain veneer.

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin is a synthetic material that can be coloured to match your natural teeth. Your dentist will bond the material to your tooth’s surface using an adhesive that will become part of the tooth structure, and it can be used to restore small to large chips, and other damage caused by trauma.

Some of the benefits of composite resin veneers include:

  • They can strengthen your original tooth
  • The repair looks as good, or even better, than your natural tooth
  • Resin can be applied directly to the tooth, so the procedure takes place during a single appointment.
  • Lower veneer costs
  • Less healthy tooth structure needs to be removed during the process



Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin layers of tooth coloured porcelain that are also bonded to the tooth. Your dentist may recommend this material in situations where more serious injury has taken place, such as teeth that have been fractured or treated for a root canal.

Some of the things you may want to keep in mind about porcelain veneers include:

  • They require more tooth preparation (more original tooth structure must be removed)
  • Th\ey last longer than composite resin veneers
  • Porcelain veneers come with a higher cost
  • They must be fabricated in a laboratory, so require more visits
