How to Treat Damaged Teeth

Do you have one or more injured teeth? Are chips or cracks in your tooth enamel impacting your bite? Restore the appearance and function of your smile with our restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Addressing tooth damage not only improves the look of the smile but also creates a more comfortable bite. Patients with broken or worn teeth can have an unbalanced bite, which leads to TMJ disorders, discomfort, and further dental damage. We can repair tooth damage in our Allentown, PA dental office.

There are multiple treatment options for patients with dental injuries:

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the front of the tooth enamel. Although patients require tooth preparation for veneers, they offer long-lasting results. Veneers can cover one or all of your teeth to create a bright and aligned smile. Dental veneers not only address damaged teeth but can also cover tooth stains and crooked teeth.

Tooth Bonding Treatment

Like dental veneers, we can color-match dental bonding material to blend in with the natural smile. The bonding material is malleable and moldable, so we can sculpt it to the tooth. Tooth bonding treatment creates a straighter and brighter smile and can offer efficient care for patients with smaller cosmetic imperfections. Patients with one or two damaged teeth often benefit from bonding treatment over other options.

Dental Crowns

Tooth crowns act like caps to fully cover single teeth. Crowns provide support to worn, weakened, and injured teeth. They create a stronger and more stable bite. We often recommend dental crowns to cover molars in the back of the mouth for added support. Unlike metal dental crowns, our porcelain ceramic tooth crowns easily blend in with the appearance of natural teeth. Still, they offer durability to the natural smile.

Inlays and Onlays

Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays cover the top of the tooth. Inlays cover the chewing surface between the tooth cusps. Onlays cover the chewing surface and the sides of the tooth. Patients with shortened or worn teeth benefit from inlays and onlays.
