Chipped and/or cracked teeth are two of the most common aesthetic concerns people have in regard to the appearance of their smile. Fortunately, they are also two of the most easily treatable issues thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry. Generally speaking, the top solutions for cracked and/or chipped teeth are:
- Porcelain Veneers – For chips or cracks on front teeth that are otherwise healthy, porcelain dental veneers are often the best treatment option. These ultra-thin, translucent shells are custom-designed to cover the front surface of teeth, effectively hiding any aesthetic concerns underneath. Due to the durability and natural appearance of the porcelain material, veneers can last several years—even decades—with proper care.
- Porcelain Crowns – For back teeth that have chips and/or cracks, porcelain dental crowns are typically the ideal solution. As opposed to simply covering the front portion of teeth, this cosmetic dentistry option is designed essentially “cap” damaged teeth, effectively restoring tooth form and function while protecting against future harm. Like veneers, porcelain crowns can be incredibly long-lasting when optimal oral hygiene habits are maintained.
