What Causes Toenail Fungus and Other Nail Damage?

If your toenails have become discolored, thickened, or damaged over time, you know how embarrassing it can feel to show them. Luckily, toenail reconstruction can restore your nails to a natural, healthy appearance.

Restore Damaged Nails

Years of neglect, injury, or fungal infections can cause toenails to become disfigured, but reconstruction uses cosmetic materials to restore the shape and structure of your nails. Whether parts of your nails are missing, split, or cracked, these treatments can repair the damage and make your toenails look normal again.

Treat Fungal Infections

Toenail fungus is a common problem and can cause nails to become yellow, brittle, and thick. Reconstruction treatments actually remove the infected parts of the nail and any debris underneath before applying a protective coating to prevent the infection from coming back. With regular touch-ups, reconstruction can eliminate toenail fungus for good.

A Natural, Permanent Solution

The materials used in toenail reconstruction, like the LCN Wilde-Pedique gel system, provide natural-looking results that last. Unlike regular nail polish that chips and scratches off, reconstruction treatments bond securely to your natural nails for a durable finish that can withstand everyday activity. With occasional maintenance, your reconstructed nails will look perfectly natural and stay that way permanently.

Embarrassed by your toenails? Don’t hide them away any longer. Toenail reconstruction can restore your nails’ health and appearance, giving you confidence to show them off again. Now you can have toenails you’re proud to display at the beach or poolside once more!

Benefits of Toenail Reconstruction

If your toenails are thick, discolored or damaged, the culprit is often toenail fungus or injury. Toenail fungus, known medically as onychomycosis, is usually caused by dermatophytes, a group of fungi that feed on keratin, the protein that makes up your nails and skin. These pesky fungi thrive in warm, moist environments like sweaty shoes and public showers. ‌

Once under the nail, the fungus spreads and feeds, causing the nail to become discolored, thickened and crumbly. If left untreated, the infection can become severe and even spread to other nails. Injury or trauma to the nails can also lead to splits, cracks and missing nails. Constant pressure from ill-fitting shoes, dropping heavy objects on your feet, or stubbing your toe can all damage the nail matrix, the area under the cuticle where your nails grow. ‌

Preventing Further Damage

The key to healthy nails is prevention. Keep your feet clean and dry, and alternate between at least two pairs of properly fitting shoes so they have time to fully dry out between wearings. Apply a quality foot powder, especially in hot weather. Trim your nails straight across and file the edges to prevent ingrown nails. See a podiatrist for proper nail care and treatment right away if you notice any discoloration, thickening, or other changes in your nails. ‌

Early detection and treatment of toenail issues is critical to stopping the problem in its tracks and promoting nail health and an attractive appearance. With today’s effective reconstructive treatments, you can get your toenails looking great again and keep them that way!

The Toenail Reconstruction Process Step-by-Step

Toenail reconstruction offers several benefits that can drastically improve your confidence and quality of life.

Improved Appearance ‌

Discolored, thickened or misshapen toenails are unsightly and can make you self-conscious about showing your feet. Cosmetic reconstruction uses natural-looking materials to reshape and cover your toenails, giving you nails that look natural and healthy again. No more embarrassment at the beach or pool!

Elimination of Pain

If you suffer from ingrown toenails, fungal infections or other nail conditions, your toes may be painful or sensitive. Reconstruction helps eliminate pain by removing the damaged nail and any infected or ingrown tissue. The new nail is custom-fitted to your toe to prevent future problems.

Prevention of Infection ‌

Damaged or diseased nails provide an entry point for bacteria and fungi. Reconstruction seals and protects your toes, lowering the risk of infections that can spread and become serious if left untreated.

Increased Mobility

Painful or damaged toenails can make it difficult to walk, stand for long periods or participate in activities you enjoy. Reconstruction helps get you back on your feet doing the things you love with minimal discomfort or limitations.

Long-Lasting Solution

Unlike medications that require ongoing treatment or temporary fixes like nail polish to mask the appearance of damaged nails, reconstruction provides a permanent solution. The materials used create natural-looking nails that last for years with proper care and maintenance. ‌

Toenail reconstruction offers a range of benefits for both your physical and emotional well-being. By eliminating pain, preventing infection, and restoring the natural appearance of your nails, this treatment can help you put your best foot forward again.

Frequently Asked Questions About Toenail Reconstruction

The toenail reconstruction process typically takes 2-3 treatments to fully restore your nails. The steps are as follows:


First, you’ll meet with your podiatrist for a consultation. They will examine your nails and determine the cause of the damage, whether fungal infection, injury, or another issue. The podiatrist will then recommend a treatment plan to reconstruct your nails. They will explain the process, timeline, and costs so you know what to expect.

Filing and Cleaning

To start the reconstruction, your podiatrist will file down and clean your damaged nails. They remove any loose or detached parts of the nail and file the surface to create a smooth base for the new nail. This also removes the infection or damaged tissue so healthy new nail can grow in properly.

Application of Medications (if needed)

If your nail damage is due to a fungal infection, your podiatrist will apply antifungal medications directly to the nail bed and nail matrix to eliminate the infection before reconstruction. Oral antifungal drugs may also be prescribed. The medications need time to fully clear the infection, so you may wait 4-6 weeks before the next step.

Nail Implantation

Once your nails are cleaned and any infection is cleared, the podiatrist will implant nail augmentations or extensions to reconstruct the natural nail. Small pieces of nail material or nail implants are bonded to your natural nail bed using a strong resin or adhesive. Over time, as your natural nail grows out, the augmentations are filled in with natural nail. Multiple treatments are needed as your nail grows to achieve full coverage. ‌

While the process requires patience, toenail reconstruction can successfully restore your nails to a natural appearance. With the proper aftercare and precautions, your new nails should remain clear and healthy for years to come. Regular follow-ups with your podiatrist and good foot care hygiene are key to avoiding repeat damage or infection.
