I Chipped a Tooth! What Can I Do? | Dr. Khaled Almansoob

It often starts innocently enough. You’re enjoying your favorite hard candy when suddenly, you feel a hard piece in your mouth that won’t dissolve. Upon inspection, you discover it’s a chipped piece of tooth.

While enamel is one of the body’s hardest substances, it does have its limits. Whether it’s chewing on ice or grinding your teeth at night, there’s always a risk of damaging your teeth. But if you’ve chipped a tooth, there’s no need to panic. Here are some ways we can restore your smile at Center Point Dental Care with Dr. Khaled Almansoob:

Tooth Bonding:

Tooth bonding is a versatile procedure that can effectively repair chipped teeth. It’s a straightforward process that doesn’t require numbing. The bonding materials and porcelain used are natural in color and can be customized to match your teeth perfectly. After treatment, your smile will look good as new, and others will hardly notice you ever chipped a tooth.

Dental Crown:

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that not only enhances the appearance of your tooth but also protects it. Our AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) dentist may recommend a tooth-colored crown made of porcelain or zirconia to blend seamlessly with your teeth. Crowns provide the durability and strength your tooth needs for daily use. If the chip doesn’t affect the entire tooth, a partial crown may be sufficient.

Porcelain Veneers:

Porcelain laminate veneers consist of thin layers of ceramic that are bonded to the teeth to replace the original enamel. They are an excellent option for restoring chipped teeth, providing a natural and healthy appearance.
