Our effective smile solutions
At Lighthouse Dental Care, we offer a range of effective treatments for chipped or cracked teeth. Our experienced dental team is dedicated to restoring your smile and ensuring your oral health.
For minor chips or cracks, we use a tooth-colored composite resin to carefully reshape and bond to the damaged area, restoring the tooth’s appearance and function.
These thin, custom-made shells are bonded to the front surface of the teeth, covering chips, cracks, and other imperfections while providing a natural-looking, durable solution.
In cases where a tooth has suffered significant damage, a dental crown may be necessary. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over the damaged tooth, providing strength, protection, and an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
If a cracked or chipped tooth cannot be saved, we suggest dental implants. We place a post into the jawbone, acting as a replacement tooth root. A customized crown is then attached, providing a permanent solution for severely damaged teeth.
We’ll assess the extent of your chipped or cracked tooth and recommend the most suitable treatment option. We prioritize your comfort and ensure your treatment is performed with precision and care. Book an appointment today and get back to smiling!
