Chipped Tooth Repair Near Marietta

Direct impact or too much pressure can chip, crack and break your teeth, causing cosmetic and oral health issues. Any damage to a tooth should be taken seriously. An immediate dental repair is needed to prevent further complications. If you live in Marietta or East Cobb, you can find excellent dental repair for damaged teeth at the office of Dr. Wayne Suway in Atlanta.

A chip on a tooth may not look or feel serious, but you should not hesitate to have it fixed. While the initial impact may hurt, most chipped teeth are not painful. However, they can lead to other problems. Once the outer enamel of a tooth is removed, the dentin and softer tooth material inside is exposed. Bacteria can quickly cause decay, and there is a chance of infection. What started as a quick chip repair can lead to a cavity, or worse, an infected tooth that requires a root canal.

Dr. Suway can repair most chipped teeth in one office visit. Depending on the tooth and location of the chip, it can be filled, or dental bonding can be used to repair the tooth. Dr. Suway can repair the chip using tooth-colored resin to blend the repair with the rest of the tooth. When the repair is completed, your tooth will be protected and look like new again. The process is not painful and can usually be completed in a quick visit to our office.

Dental Treatments for Broken or Cracked Teeth

Contact sports, auto accidents, falls and other trauma are often the cause of cracked or broken teeth. Children often fall and catch their mouth on a piece of furniture, breaking or cracking a tooth. A flying ball during a baseball game can smack the side of a player’s face, leaving a bruising and a broken tooth beneath. When tooth damage occurs, you can rest assured that Dr. Suway can offer a solution to repair you or your child’s smile.

Cracked teeth are not always from impact. A small crack can occur from biting a seed or hard candy then gets worse over time. Sometimes you may not even know your tooth is cracked until it starts becoming sensitive to temperature or you come in for a dental exam. Most cracks can be fixed with a filling or bonding. However, deep cracks may require a dental crown if the structure of the tooth has been weakened.

Broken teeth are more serious. Not only can they be painful, even if there is no pain, they pose a serious risk for your oral health. Some broken teeth can be repaired with an inlay or onlay, but often a dental crown is required. At Dr. Suway’s office, we have advanced imaging that makes it easier to create an impression of the broken tooth for building a new crown. You do not need to endure the goopy mess of a physical impression. A 3D picture is taken of your broken tooth which will create the impression for the dental crown and can even color-match the crown to your smile.

Damaged teeth should always be a top-priority to have repaired. For those who live in East Cobb, Marietta or the greater Atlanta area, you can contact Dr. Suway’s office at the first indication of a chip or crack in a tooth to schedule a repair. For broken or painful teeth, we offer emergency dental appointments and can often see patients the same day they call.

Never put off repairing a damaged tooth. Dr. Suway is always accepting new patients, and we welcome most types of dental insurance at our office.

I have known Dr. Suway for 30 years. My parents found him originally and made me a believer and life long friend and patient. In the years since, I have recommended my husband, son and friends. I would hear that going to the dentist was a fear of many people. I could never understand that because it was always a pleasure to come to Dr. Suway’s office. His staff are so professional, gentle and kind. It’s nice to see the same faces twice a year. You can tell they love working with him. I tell people that Dr. Suway gives the best shots – you can’t even feel a pinch. My son who hates needles, has no problem getting a shot for a filling. I love Dr. Suway’s personality. When you walk in the office you might hear him singing a country western song. I have porcelain veneers on my front teeth and am so thrilled. It’s been 10 years and they are still white and beautiful. He is an artist and perfectionist who loves to make people happy. I recommend Dr. Suway to become your dentist. He is a man of character and professionalism, yet down to earth. If you choose Dr. Suway, you’ll get an excellent dentist, but also a friend for life.

Dennis & Maria Liber

Dr. Suway is very relaxed and as a result we find that we are very relaxed as well. He takes the time to listen when we have concerns and he answers questions fully. We never feel like he is rushing from us to another patient. When we do need fillings, crowns or any other extensive work, he is concerned that we are comfortable and feeling no pain.

Through the years, we have found Dr. Suway to be a skillful perfectionist in all areas of his profession. He keeps abreast of and utilizes the latest dental techniques to improve and ensure the longevity of his patient’s teeth. He is a caring, personable professional who always greets his patients with a sincere, ready smile. Dr. Suway is also a ‘confidence booster.’ I say this because by the time I was 30 years old I was wearing dentures. He immediately recognized a self-conscious young wife, mother and professional who needed his professional help. His approach to boosting my confidence was through dental implants. At that time dental implants were a relatively new procedure. Dr. Suway carefully explained to me the advantages of dental implants and was proactive in working with my insurance provider to ensure that they understood the correlation between the required dental procedures and health plan benefits. I can smile with confidence forever because of Dr. Suway. Dr. Suway’s staff is a mirror image of his positive professionalism. They are always courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and personable. Appointments are scheduled at your convenience. You know that your time is valued because at the precise time of your appointment you are greeted, then immediately seen by either Dr. Suway or a hygienist. His work is outstanding and he is one of a kind.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Suway since 1988. Dr. Suway and his staff have provided us with state-of-the-art oral health care in a pleasant, friendly and compassionate environment for many years. Dr. Suway has done many procedures for me including root canals, crowns and a bridge. His work is beautiful. He is truly a perfectionist and that is exactly what I want in a dentist. I would never trust my smile to anyone other then Dr. Suway.
