At Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we see many children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. A missing tooth makes activities such as eating and talking difficult.
We recommend that parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.
If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to an injury or an accident, we offer many restorative procedures.
If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be the best remedy. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.
Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.
If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.
