Chipped Tooth Treatments
At some point in life, most of us will at least partially chip a tooth. It happens to people of all ages, and seemingly happens out of nowhere. It especially seems to happen a lot to children, who often chip a tooth while playing with their friends. In addition to chipping a tooth from some of trauma to the mouth, a chipped tooth may also result from cavities, biting down on something hard, excessive teeth grinding and damaged tooth enamel.
The Importance of Having a Dentist Look at Your Chipped Tooth
Not every chipped tooth causes pain, which may cause you to decide you can put off having it looked at or fixed. However, this could prove to be an imprudent decision, as a chipped tooth could lead to an infection and cause further the harm the longer you wait. Eventually, if things get too bad, it could result in you losing the entire tooth.
What’s more, many people hate the way a chipped tooth looks and feels, even if it’s not causing pain. Regardless of your thoughts on your chipped tooth, it’s important to have it treated by a dentist to avoid far worse outcomes.
Dental Treatments For a Chipped Tooth
Brockport Dental routinely fixes chipped teeth for patients of all ages. For smaller chips, we can provide a filling or a bonding; if it’s a more serious chip, we may need to provide you with a dental cap or crown to best protect your tooth and ensure it functions and looks normal. For a front tooth, we will likely provide dental veneers, which is matched to blend in seamlessly with the shape and color of the rest of your teeth.
