Treatment Options For A Chipped Tooth
The type of treatment you receive for a chipped tooth will depend on the severity of the damage. If only a small part of the enamel has chipped, we may be able to treat repair your tooth in one office visit. However, for patients who have experienced a badly chipped tooth, we may recommend a more advanced treatment option. Depending on your needs, we may recommend one of the following treatment options for a chipped tooth:
- Dental veneers: Veneers are designed to fit perfectly over the front and sides of your teeth to create a beautiful smile. Depending on your needs, veneers can be made from a thin, tooth-colored resin or dental porcelain. Our team creates custom veneers that are tailored to meet each patient’s specific dental needs and cosmetic goals.
- Dental bonding: Dental bonding can often be completed in one office visit. Bonding utilizes tooth-colored composite resin to help rebuild a chipped tooth. During the bonding procedure, we will gently etch the surface of the affected teeth and carefully mold the resin until the desired shape is reached. Once complete, we will harden the composite resin using a special light.
- Dental Crown: If you have experienced an extensive amount of tooth damage, we may recommend a dental crown. We can prepare the affected tooth and place a custom crown to cap the entire area of damage. A dental crown can protect the tooth as well as improve its function and overall appearance.
