Hi. I am a mountain bike rider and 2 weeks ago I hit a large bump that knocked me off the bike and I landed face first. My left front tooth and the one behind it are chipped. The chips are not large, but you can definitely see them when I smile. I don’t have money for Lumineers. What else can be done? – Rick from Montclair
Rick – Your teeth can likely be restored with dental bonding. Your teeth will be lightly etched to prepare them for the bonding. The bonding will be applied, shaped, hardened, and then further shaped and polished.
You should not need Lumineers® to correct the chips in your teeth. Be sure to have an experienced cosmetic dentist do the bonding work. The result will blend in so perfectly with your natural teeth that you won’t be able to tell that they were damaged.
