The teeth in the front of your mouth are presented in many of your facial expressions. These teeth also play an important role in certain aspects of your speech as well as your healthy oral function. If a front tooth is chipped or fractured it can have a profound effect on your self-esteem and the basic function of your mouth.

If the damaged area only affects a single surface of the tooth’s enamel layer a dentist like Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS might be able to repair it by installing a composite a dental filling. This material can be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding tooth enamel.

If you prefer, our doctor can numb the area by injecting procaine into the local gum tissues. This will help you remain comfortable throughout the treatment process. Then he will remove a small amount of extra tooth enamel to prepare a surface capable of marrying the dental filling securely.

Next, he will shade the composite resin material to mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Once it has been applied, Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS will then harden the dental filling with a special ultraviolet light.

If you live in the Owasso, Oklahoma, area, and you have a chipped tooth, you should call 918-272-0707 to seek timely treatment at Renaissance Dental.
