Get Your Chipped or Damage Tooth Checked Out

While many individuals who experience chipped teeth approach us for cosmetic restoration, we’re aware that there are others who don’t. It’s vital to understand that any kind of tooth damage, including chipping, warrants an evaluation by a dentist.

Here are some reasons why:

  • Hidden damage: A chipped tooth may have underlying damage that is not immediately visible. A dentist can evaluate the extent of the damage and identify any additional issues that may require treatment.
  • Prevent further harm: Getting a chipped tooth checked ensures that necessary measures are taken to prevent further harm. It helps safeguard the tooth from additional damage or complications that could arise if left untreated.
  • Tooth preservation: Timely intervention can help preserve the natural tooth structure. Ignoring a chipped tooth may lead to further loss of tooth structure, increasing the risk of future complications and the need for more extensive treatments.
  • Oral health assessment: A dentist can assess the overall health of the affected tooth and surrounding structures, ensuring that no other dental issues are present that may require attention.
  • Pain management: Severe chipping can cause pain or discomfort. By seeking professional help, a dentist can provide appropriate pain management strategies and recommend suitable treatments to alleviate any discomfort.
  • Cosmetic restoration: Addressing a chipped tooth promptly allows for better cosmetic restoration options. A dentist can recommend suitable cosmetic treatments, such as bonding, veneers, or crowns, to restore the tooth’s appearance and enhance your smile.

Remember, early intervention and professional assessment by a dentist are essential for maintaining oral health and preserving the natural tooth structure.

Solutions For Chipped Or Damaged Teeth

Dental Veneers

Veneers are a highly effective solution for chipped teeth, offering both cosmetic improvement and structural reinforcement. These thin porcelain shells fit over the front surface of the teeth, effectively covering up chips and cracks.

By bonding veneers to the damaged teeth, a natural-looking and seamless appearance can be achieved. Veneers not only restore the aesthetics of chipped teeth by providing a smooth and uniform surface, but they also provide added strength and durability to the affected teeth.

Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a superior, non-invasive choice for minor chips that don’t necessitate full tooth restoration. During this procedure, a composite resin is used to fill the gap created by the chip. The dentist starts by roughening the area with an etching fluid, then applies the bonding resin to the tooth, which is then formed and adjusted to match your bite and smile.

A particular light is then used to solidify the material. The last step involves trimming and polishing the resin so that it harmonises with your natural teeth.

Root Canal Treatment
If the dental pulp gets infected, a root canal treatment is needed to eliminate the afflicted tissue. In this procedure, the dentist creates a small cut in the tooth to reach the infected root canal area.

Utilising endodontic files, the dentist cleans the area before disinfecting and sealing the tooth, followed by a temporary filling.

After the inflammation has subsided, you will revisit your dentist to receive a permanent filling or a dental crown to entirely restore the functionality and aesthetics of the tooth.

Dental Crown
If a significant part of your tooth or the entire tooth is damaged, a cosmetic procedure may not be able to repair it. A dental crown, a tooth-shaped cap that fits over the damaged tooth, can protect it from further damage. The tooth-coloured dental crown is cemented into position for a precise fit and a natural-looking smile.
