Tooth wear, broken fillings and chipped teeth can all be signs of an underlying functional dental problem. Buford, GA dentist Dr. Alla Brown is highly experienced in diagnosing and solving dental problems to prevent future damage to teeth.

Problems That Contribute to Tooth Wear

In some instances, a single chipped or broken tooth is caused by an injury or accident. Dr. Brown can fix this type of problem quickly with treatment options such as tooth bonding, dental veneers or dental crowns.

If you have teeth that break repeatedly, even after treatment from a dentist, you may have an underlying functional problem. Common conditions that lead to worn teeth are teeth grinding, malocclusion and misaligned teeth.

Treatment For Worn Teeth

The first step when solving the problem of worn or broken teeth is a comprehensive evaluation. Your treatment may include one or several procedures to establish a healthy, stable bite and repair cosmetic problems.

Orthodontics

Crooked, or misaligned teeth, can sometimes be the source for premature tooth wear and/or broken teeth. Dr. Brown offers both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, an invisible braces system that can gently reposition your teeth without traditional braces.

Restorative Dentistry

Dr. Brown offers several type of dental restorations such as tooth crowns and porcelain veneers which can be used to cover teeth that are worn, broken or chipped.

Tooth Bonding

For minor tooth chips, Dr. Brown may recommend cosmetic tooth bonding. This is a simple procedure, typically complete in a single dental visit.
