My teeth are chipped and worn. Which cosmetic treatment will help the most?

Return to FAQs

Several cosmetic dental treatments are good options for chipped and worn teeth. Which one is right for you will depend on a) what’s been causing the damage and b) how much damage has been done.

Call AZ Cosmetic and Family Dentistry to schedule your appointment with Glendale dentist Dr. Narra so that she can evaluate your individual situation and provide a recommendation based on her knowledge and years of cosmetic dentistry experience.

Some of the options she may recommend include porcelain veneers or crowns and dental bonding using composite resin.

In this situation, it’s also important to get to the bottom of the cause of the damage. A couple different situations can lead to short or eroded teeth. Sometimes the issues are dietary since highly acidic foods and drinks (like sodas) are known to erode dental enamel. Dry mouth, which is linked to several medical conditions and their treatments, can cause erosion. Acid reflux disease can erode teeth. Bruxism, or tooth grinding and clenching, is also a common culprit.

Once we understand the cause of your tooth erosion, we can create a plan to help you avoid further erosion or damage to your new restorations in the future.
