Why Repair Tooth Damage?

If you have a cracked or chipped tooth it can affect the health of your smile over time. Minor tooth damage can quickly become a more complex problem if tooth decay begins to develop or the tooth becomes weakened. Repairing tooth damage quickly will support your long-term dental health and reduce the risk of tooth loss. Dr. Desbordes addresses tooth damage every day.

How Can Tooth Damage Be Repaired?

Dr. Desbordes will evaluate your tooth damage and offers several options for repairing a damaged tooth. Cosmetic bonding, dental veneers, dental crowns, and dental fillings are common treatments for addressing a damaged tooth. We will do our best to use minimally-invasive treatment options before recommending oral surgery. In some situations, a smile makeover may be the answer.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

If you have lost a tooth, or several teeth, prompt replacement is the key to enjoying lasting dental health and a functional smile. Dr. Desbordes can replace your missing tooth or teeth, with beautiful, comfortable cosmetic dentistry restorations, including dental implants.

Replacing lost teeth is about more than just the aesthetics of your smile. Your new denture, dental bridge, or dental implants will serve to maintain a stable, functional smile and long-term oral health.
