At Ritchie Dental Group we see many Marble Falls children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.
Greg Ritchie recommends that Marble Falls parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most Marble Falls sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.
If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Ritchie Dental Group offer many restorative procedures.
If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be the best remedy. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.
Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.
If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Ritchie Dental Group will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.
Ritchie Dental Group has been offering family and cosmetic dentistry to the people of Texas since 2000. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
