5 Ways to Restore a Chipped Tooth

While enamel is the hardest substance in the body, it is not indestructible. You can break or chip a tooth from an accident or after biting down on a hard object. Teeth grinding and untreated tooth decay can also lead to a chipped tooth. Whatever the case, a chipped tooth can ruin your radiant smile and impact dental functions. Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem. A dental professional can restore a chipped tooth using different treatments. The following are a few ways to repair a broken or chipped tooth:

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a relatively common treatment for chipped teeth. This cosmetic procedure entails applying composite resin to the affected tooth to restore its shape. Our dentist might also use composite fillings to fill the gaps in the chipped tooth. Many patients prefer dental bonding since it is less conspicuous and looks like natural teeth.

Dental Crowns

Another treatment for repairing a chipped tooth is a dental crown. Tooth crowns are caps that cover damaged or broken teeth. Our dentist may have to reshape your chipped tooth before fitting the dental cap. This tooth-colored prosthetic is permanent but might require a replacement after 5 to 10 years, depending on the material used.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are similar to dental crowns. However, veneers cover only the front surface of the tooth. These custom shells are ideal for restoring larger chips on the front teeth. Our dentist will take an imprint of your damaged tooth before creating a custom mold.

Root Canal Therapy

We recommend root canal therapy for severely damaged or chipped teeth. This treatment is a practical option if the chip exposes the dental pulp. It involves removing the dead pulp and cleaning the canal before sealing the tooth with a crown.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can be a practical solution if you have one or more severely chipped teeth. This procedure involves extracting and replacing the damaged tooth with a prosthetic tooth.
