How to Fix Chips and Stains
Chipping and staining are two of the most common reasons people are dissatisfied with their smile. These flaws can detract from your overall appearance and make you reluctant to smile or talk. At Martins Dental Partners in Beverly, MA, our dental team understands the personal and social need to have a beautiful smile. That’s why we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures that can vastly improve our patients’ teeth. Dr. Valerie Martins, Dr. Suzanne Fisher and Dr. Sukhpreet Heer explain how we can help fix chips and stains. Unlike bones, teeth don’t regenerate when they’re damaged.
Solutions for Chips
So if you’ve chipped your tooth on a piece of ice or while opening a package, it’s a permanent blemish, right? With cosmetic dentistry procedures, the answer is no! At Martins Dental Partners in Beverly, you have several options when it comes to repairing chips, cracks or other signs of physical damage to your teeth. Bonding cement is carefully matched to the color of your teeth and sculpted to fit seamlessly into the chipped area. We can also create a custom veneer that fits over the entire tooth and hides the flaws from view. More extensive damage can be repaired with a dental crown.
Solutions for Stains
Teeth look best when they’re white. However, coffee drinking, tobacco and other circumstances can turn them an unflattering shade of yellow, brown or gray. Fortunately, your Beverly cosmetic dentist can reverse the effects of staining with teeth whitening. Using a peroxide-based gel, our trained staff can turn your teeth up to four shades whiter in just one 60-minute appointment at Martins Dental Partners. Certain stains, such as those caused by antibiotics or trauma, do not respond to whitening, but veneers or bonding can rejuvenate the appearance of your teeth.
