“I have absolutely no idea what happened,” Bob said. “I was brushing my teeth, just like I do every single morning, and the inside corner of my front tooth just crumbled. I stood there staring at the mirror in disbelief. Where did my tooth go? And I’m in a very appearance conscious profession – I can’t go meet with clients looking like this!”
Bob is in his mid-sixties. Like many people his age, he is still very active in the workforce and needs to be able to perform at a very top level. Having a chipped or broken front tooth is a big negative in our world. Luckily, your Quincy dentist has a number of treatment strategies that can be used to repair chipped and broken front teeth in a hurry.
“When I called for an appointment, I felt a little ridiculous saying I needed emergency dental care, but for me this was an emergency!” Bob said. “And the Quincy dental practice is extremely understanding. They’re very friendly and got me an appointment that same day. I went in and met with the dentist, and they explained what my options were.” Tooth contouring and the use of porcelain veneers are options used to address chipped and broken front teeth, as are dental implants. The decision as to what type of treatment is best for a chipped or broken front tooth is made on an individual basis, taking into account your ability to eat, speak, and smile.
“You don’t realize how much your confidence depends on your smile,” Bob said. “Something that seems so small and minor can really have a major impact on how you feel about yourself. I know one thing for sure: the first time after I looked at myself in the mirror after the Quincy dentist fixed my broken front tooth, I felt 100% better!”
