Chipped Tooth...What Can I do?

Did you know the smile is the most memorable feature after first meeting someone new?  So, what happens when you have a chipped or broken tooth? Has the new person's view of you changed? 

Well, don't let it affect you! There are many ways your dentist can fix a chipped or broken tooth!

  • Filling or Bonding:  The dentist will apply a filling to repair a small chipped part of the tooth's enamel. However, if you have a chipped tooth upfront, they will apply a tooth-colored composite resin called bonding.
  • Dental Veneers: This is a tooth-colored composite resin or porcelain that will be applied over the surface or the chipped or broken tooth by using a special kind of cement. 
  • Dental Cap or Crown: If you have lost a large portion of the tooth, you may need to have a dental cap or crown. This will be placed over the tooth to protect it, preserve function of the tooth, and enhance aesthetic appeal. 
If you break a tooth or notice a chip, call your dental office immediately to get professional advice!
