The teeth in the front of your mouth are essential for biting off pieces of food, while also helping you to produce many important spoken syllables. They also play a cosmetic role in the appearance of your smile.

If the front facial surface of a tooth in your smile suffers a chip or some minor physical defect it might cause minor sensitivity, and leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. This can drive some individuals to guard some of their facial expressions.

In a situation like this, the wisest course of action is to seek out treatment from a reputable dentist like Dr. Glorimar Llavona. After a basic assessment and X-ray of the affected tooth, they can avail you of the most applicable treatment methods.

If the compromised area of tooth enamel is minimal and limited to the facial surface of the tooth, they might be able to address it with a cosmetic bonding treatment. This involves applying a small amount of a composite resin material that can be shaded to match the adjacent tooth enamel.

Once this is done Dr. Glorimar Llavona will use a special ultraviolet light to harden the cosmetic bonding and seal the compromised defect in the tooth enamel.

If you live in the Weston, Florida, region and you have a chipped tooth or otherwise distressed you should call 954-349-4993 to have it examined and treated at the dental offices of Dental Specialists of Weston.
