What Can I Do To Fix My Chipped Tooth?

 

Your chipped tooth is the bad news. The good news — your dentist has a variety of options on how to fix a chipped tooth and we break them down below.

For the smallest chips in teeth, bonding is the most likely repair route your dentist will recommend. It consists of applying a composite resin material over your tooth to create a mold. Your dentist will then shape the composite into the chip to make it appear as part of the tooth.

 

1. Veneers

If the chip is a little bigger and along most of your teeth, veneers may be a better option for you. While bonding fills small chips here and there, veneers are either porcelain or composite and are placed on the front of the tooth.

 

2. Crowns

While veneers go over the front of your chipped tooth, a crown surrounds the entire tooth. When the chip is significant and much of the tooth is lost, crowns are an excellent solution.

The good thing about all of them is that by engulfing the chipped tooth, you’re preventing any further damage to the tooth or nerve.

 

3. Dental Implants

The last option for repairing a chipped tooth would be getting a dental implant. This route is only for the most severe cracks where very little tooth remains above the gumline.

 

How Do I Get Started?

Book an appointment with your dentist and address any of your oral health concerns. Your dentist will take the necessary x-ray or photos if required to access your suitability for either option. If you are not the best candidate for either option, your dentist will provide you other treatment options to achieve your dream smile. Contact us at Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge to find out more!

Care and Maintenance

Like a snowflake or fingerprint, not all tooth chips are alike. So your dentist will have a thorough examination before you decide on the best option for you and your oral health. Whichever way you go, maintaining proper oral care can only keep your repaired tooth happy and healthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of veneers?
Veneers look and feel like natural teeth. A tooth is naturally translucent. They are made of porcelain and will give you the appearance of a natural smile.
How long will a veneer last?
With proper care, veneers from Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge remain in place for many years. In order to protect veneers from damage, your Kellyville Ridge dentist encourages patients to practice good oral hygiene at home and continue receiving regular check-ups and cleanings.
Can veneers be whitened?
Veneers won’t respond to whitening like natural teeth. Because of this, patients schedule teeth whitening procedures before having veneers. The veneers are matched to the colour of the patient’s teeth after the whitening procedure.
