Often times, patients are unhappy with the shape of their teeth because they are two short. One of the reason teeth can look short is because of worn down teeth that may have occurred over many years. Sometimes these cases can be more difficult than a simple chip in a tooth and requires a lot of planning. At Noble Dental, your Philadelphia Center City dentists have the skill set to diagnosis and treatment plan these cases and thus can provide you with an outcome you’d be happy with and that will last. Some of the options we provide at Noble Dental to give you the smile you want are: Dental Bonding, Veneers and Crowns.
- Dental bonding – Is a procedure that uses tooth-colored resin material that is able to be bonded to your tooth after only slight roughing of the tooth and application of a bonding agent and using a special light that sets the tooth-colored material leaving it bonded to the tooth. This is a great option for closing gaps between teeth and small chips in teeth. There are some downsides to bonding, one being that the material can stain over time. Another downside is that the bond between the tooth and material can weaken overtime.
- Porcelain Veneers – Are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are designed to cover just the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth. This is a great option for wanting to change the color and shape of your teeth, without having to worry about discoloration overtime. Veneers may not be the best option for people who have had large fillings in their teeth, since the bond of a veneer is best on natural tooth structure.
- Dental Crowns – Are tooth-shaped “caps” that are placed over teeth. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. This is a great option for people who have large fillings in their teeth and want something that will not discolor overtime and will provide strength to their remaining tooth structure.
