Dental Patient Hiding Her Smile

How to Fix Your Damaged Teeth

A beautiful smile is an attractive feature and one of our main sources of confidence. But if you have a damaged or missing tooth, it’s much easier to feel embarrassed instead. You have several options for repairing your teeth, depending on your oral condition and smile goals. Our dentists in Monroeville, PA can help you determine which is best and provide personalized care that restores your smile’s function and attractiveness!


Your 3 Main Restoration Options

  1. Dental Veneers. Custom-designed from either porcelain or ceramic, dental veneers are thin shells that fit over the front portion of your tooth. If your tooth is chipped or cracked, a veneer can effectively hide this cosmetic flaw behind a perfectly fitted restoration. Dental veneers can also benefit patients with gapped or discolored teeth. Often, all the teeth that show when you smile (the “aesthetic” zone) is treated with veneers to reveal a balanced, attractive smile.
  2. Dental Crowns. For teeth with moderate damage, large fillings, or treated with a root canal, dental crowns are the ideal choice. These “caps” for your teeth restore optimal tooth function and aesthetics by preserving the natural shape, size, and color. Dental crowns can be fabricated from numerous materials, including porcelain, gold, ceramic, and zirconia.
  3. Dental Implants. A tooth that is lost or extracted can now be replaced with a dental implant instead of a traditional dental bridge. Implants provide better long-term durability by functioning like a natural tooth. Along with preserving your bone, a dental implant is also precision-crafted to look and feel like a real tooth. Whether replacing a molar or a front tooth, a dental implant restored correctly won’t be distinguishable as artificial!
