Fixing Chipped, Crooked and Damaged TeethIt's easy to chip or damage a tooth and it's not your fault if your teeth grew in crooked. But there's no reason to should live with these flaws your whole life! Midlothian Dental Center offers a handful of reasons to love your smile. From veneers to bonding, tooth-colored restorations, and dental bridges Midlothian, Dr. Gore and Dr. Hoover have a handful of solutions to restore your beautiful smile!
Dental VeneersDental veneers are very thin layers of porcelain which are custom-made to fit your natural teeth in order to strengthen weak teeth, whiten discolored teeth and correct chipped teeth. Veneers can even fill gaps and restore the structure of damaged teeth, leaving your smile looking just as good—or even better—than it was before. But don’t worry, the veneer finish that is used at Midlothian Dental Center is practically translucent, so your damaged tooth blends in perfectly with the rest of your smile!
Dental BondingBonding, a thin plastic coating on the front surface of a tooth, hides any natural flaws and produces results after just one treatment. The treatment is painless and the bond can be sculpted and colored to match the rest of your smile. The plastic hardens with exposure to a high-intensity light and the surface of the plastic is then smoothed out and polished to give you a natural-tooth look. Bonding can lighten stains, close gaps and transform crooked or misshapen teeth to remake a single tooth or entire smile.
Tooth-Colored RestorationsThe mercury and silver tooth restoration materials of yesteryear have proven inefficient over time. These materials expand during their lifetime resulting in cracked teeth and a painful mouth. The materials even turn black as the material corrodes.Today, Midlothian Dental Center has a variety of ways to provide you with tooth-colored restorations. Bonding materials prove sufficient when restoring teeth to their natural, healthy strength and color. Porcelain-like filling replace the decaying silver amalgams once used as fillings for teeth with cavities. These new fillings bond to teeth to provide the tightest seal possible, preventing any further decay from cavities. They are stain-resistant, color-matched and virtually impossible to see—unlike those silver fillings of the past. Especially if you’re allergic to metal fillings, these new techniques in tooth-colored restorations are perfect for you!
Dental BridgesDental bridges are often excellent ways to replace one or more teeth. Tooth restorations are cemented onto existing, broken teeth, to give your smile perfect and permanent functionality. Unlike partial dentures, dental bridges work to replace damaged teeth that will remain in your mouth. Dentures, though similar, are best for missing teeth.

Temporary Solutions for Missing TeethEveryone loves a full smile. There have been major breakthroughs in dentistry, giving temporary and permanent options for filling gaps. There are the ever-reliable full and partial dentures which can fill one or more teeth. There are also dental implants for a fixed smile, day in and day out.

DenturesNow that dental hygiene is thoroughly ingrained in our culture and daily schedules, many people will not need full dentures as did our parents and grandparents. But many of us will need partial dentures for one or a few missing teeth, and many already have dentures which are worn or simply do not fit any longer.
