From time to time, accidents happen to your teeth and they can get fractured or chipped. Now this is not an overwhelming emergency and so you don’t need to go tearing about the city of Leeds trying to get it fixed. However, you do need to get it done at some point: this type of damage can harbour bacteria and before long your teeth can start to decay, which is definitely something to avoid at all costs because bad decay can lead to periodontal disease, tooth loss and abscesses. Aside from that, the sharp edges from the chip or crack can lead to lacerations to the tongue and gums and lead to infection. Your damaged teeth may also look unsightly so there are three good reasons why you need to get them repaired and it isn’t hard either. Cosmetic bonding is a very simple procedure and you can get your teeth fixed up wonderfully in just an hour. If the damage is substantial, veneers can be cemented over the teeth to restore the look and prevent complication from occurring.
