5 Top Treatments for Chipped Teeth

There are many reasons you may experience a chipped or broken tooth, but there are also many treatments to repair the dental damage.

  1. Composite Bonding

Bonding has long been used in family dentistry to repair decayed and discolored teeth, but it’s also a useful way to restore a broken tooth and chipped teeth. Composite bonding is so popular because it can stay strong for up to ten years, doesn’t require anesthesia, and can match your tooth’s natural color.

  1. Dental Crowns

A crown is a protective cap that covers your tooth to preserve its full function and restore its natural appearance. If you have chipped teeth or a broken tooth, family dentistry experts often prescribe crowns. As a result, crowns have become one of the most common restorative dental treatments today.

  1. Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are layers of thin, delicate porcelain that are applied onto the teeth. They provide the most natural and attractive results, which has made them popular for repairing chipped teeth. They can also last up to thirty years with proper care, so they won’t need frequent replacement. While these tend to cost more than other dental procedures, an affordable dentist may be able to make them an option for you.

  1. Root Canal

Severely broken or chipped teeth typically require a root canal, followed by a crown for protection and aesthetics. For the root canal procedure, a family dentistry specialist will simply remove the decayed portion and the nerve of the tooth. Even though it’s notorious for being painful, most people experience little or no discomfort.

  1. Dental Implant

If you suffer a crack in your tooth that dips into the gum line, the tooth cannot be saved and will need to be extracted. Then, a dental implant will be used to replace your natural tooth. While this procedure may cost more than other treatments, finding an affordable dentist can greatly reduce your cost and concern.
