Treatment for Chipped Teeth
If you have chipped a tooth, no need to panic. Dr. Benefield offers a range of treatment options in the comfort of their Atlanta, GA dental office. After a thorough examination of the chipped tooth, they will make an informed decision on which treatment will work best for your needs. At Sandy Springs Restorative and General Dentistry, we offer:
- Dental Bonding: A composite resin material will be bonded onto the chipped tooth. The bonding material can be shaped and color matched to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, your teeth bonding can last for years.
- Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are a thin porcelain material that is attached to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great option for patients with cracked, chipped or discolored teeth. Our dentists suggest the use of porcelain material because it can provide a natural looking solution to your dental needs.
- Dental Crowns: Dental crowns function like your natural tooth. They can be applied after a root canal to ensure your tooth stays protected and functional.
