‘Simple cosmetic dentistry’ can easily repair chips

Wed

Cosmetic dentistry could fix that chip.People who chip their teeth need not worry their smile may be affected forever, because simple cosmetic dentistry could correct the problem.

This is the advice of dentist Dr Philip Friel, who was writing in response to a reader’s query in the Scottish Daily Record.

The unnamed woman said her 14-year-old son had chipped his front tooth playing football and was “devastated”.

However, Dr Friel said eradicating chips can be carried out “successfully, non-invasively and very aesthetically”.

“A simple chip can be restored using a direct composite resin technique … blending it in nicely to the adjacent tooth shade,” the expert added.

Cosmetic dentistry could even help to repair more serious damage. Last month, it was reported that American Chrissy Steltz was having dental implants to restore her teeth after losing large areas of her face in a gun-related accident.

The 27-year-old was shot 11 years ago and the dental treatment is part of a range of surgeries designed to rebuild her jaw and nose.

Dental veneers ‘boost a smile’s impact’

Thu

People’s smiles could be improved with dental veneers.

Individuals looking for a smile that has impact might like to invest in dental veneers, one dental professional has argued.

Dentistry IQ reported that Dr Philip Friel has said dental veneers help create an even, bright smile for patients, but they can invasive and take time to complete correctly.

However, the benefits they provide over other solutions are that they are permanent and a person simply looks after them as they would their own teeth.

In addition, dental veneers can be used to mask gaps in teeth or imperfections, he added.

Dr Friel stated: “Depending on the aesthetic requirements, the gap can be closed using shaded porcelain onlays which can be bonded to the adjacent teeth. Both of the above can take place over two visits.”

Elsewhere, Dental Plans recently reported that many children could benefit from having braces fitted and this, in turn, could help to boost their confidence as an adult.

The publication noted children should have their teeth looked at when they are relatively young in order to head-off any problems that might develop for them as they get older.
