Dental Oahu Solutions Available For Broken Teeth

byAlma Abell

Broken teeth result from a fall, accident, facial trauma or tooth decay. Whatever the cause of broken teeth is, it affects your appearance. Some teeth are so broken that they affect one’s speech and the ability to chew with ease. These factors may greatly affect your self-esteem, social life and you unknowingly become unhealthy because you are not able to eat enough healthy foods. However, thanks to science and technology, you can opt for any of the following dental Oahu options to correct your problem.



Bonding is a cheap and quick method of achieving the look you want. You can have the procedure done with only one visit to the dentist. The dentist first examines you to see if you qualify for the procedure after which he will roughen the damaged tooth’s surface. Roughening of the tooth is known as etching that is done to enhance proper bonding. After etching, the dentist will then bond the resin to the tooth. The resin can be made of durable plastic made in different shades, and you choose one that matches the rest of your teeth. Visit the site for complete details.


There are two types of veneers, those made from composite material and those made from porcelain material. Porcelain veneers are more expensive, and best imitate the nature of the teeth. On the first appointment, the dentist files off parts of the enamel on the targeted tooth. An impression of the tooth will then be taken to the lab for the veneers to be made. Your dentist will give you a next appointment for the veneers to be placed. After 2 weeks the teeth are etched then using a special adhesive, the veneers are placed on the teeth.


The dentist takes an impression of the teeth then it is taken to the dental lab for the crown to be made. Crowns can be made from ceramic, porcelain, metal or resin. After the crown is finished, normally after 3 weeks, you will be given a different appointment for the dentist to fit it. Special cement is used to hold the teeth and crown together.

With any of the options above from Dr. Garrett T. Hayashi DDS, it will be all smiles. For more information about dental Oahu services, click
