A Chip Isn’t Damaging To Your Oral Health
Fortunately, when you end up with a chipped tooth, it’s not a very big deal. True, you may find it unsightly, you may find that it is uncomfortable against soft tissues, and other complications may arise. However, a chips is considered esthetic, which means it does impact the way your smile looks to the outside world and to yourself but it doesn’t actually compromise the overall health of your smile. So, you aren’t going to require restorative care like a crown to fix the issue. Instead, it’s a much simpler matter!

We remind patients that a chipped tooth, though it does not necessarily require care, is something we can fix. If you are unhappy with the way the chip feels or looks, then simply bring it to our attention. We offer cosmetic care treatments that can quickly and beautifully transform your gently damaged tooth back into its old self, so it looks complete and uniform again.

There Are Multiple Ways To Address It
So, how to address a chipped tooth, you wonder? First, we may suggest dental bonding, by which we replace the tissue that you have lost with composite that’s color-customized to match your tooth. Or, if it’s quite a small chip, we may be able to smooth down the area with dental contouring, which will reveal a continuous tooth border once again! You may also benefit from the placement of a porcelain veneer, which creates a completely revised appearance with the placement of a very-thin ceramic shell over the visible tooth tissue. It’s all about finding which treatment will work best for you!
