True or False: If you chip a tooth, you should see Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom right away 2. True or False: Your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists may address a chipped tooth with dental bonding. 3. True or False: Porcelain veneers restore broken or fractured teeth. 4. True or False: With a lifelike dental crown, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom can repair a damaged tooth. Answer Key 1. True. When a tooth becomes damaged, bacteria bypass the outer enamel. This leads to the onset of tooth decay and potentially, dental infection. If you chip your tooth, gather up the pieces and bring them with you to see Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom. You may need to apply gauze to control bleeding or a cold compress to reduce swelling. 2. True. First, several thin layers of composite resin will be applied to the chipped tooth. The material will be sculpted and then cured using a special light. 3. True. A thin shell of porcelain will be placed onto the front of the tooth using a powerful bonding agent. The veneers repair damage and blend seamlessly with your smile. 4. True. Using CEREC technology, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will create and place a custom-made porcelain tooth in a single visit. The crown protects the remaining tooth structure and prevents further decay or infection. Schedule an Appointment with Your Livingston NJ Cosmetic Dentists Have you chipped or cracked a tooth?
