Chipped teeth are a common problem. Whether you bit down on an unexpected olive pit in your pizza or you walked face first into a door jamb, a chipped tooth affects both the appearance and the health of your smile.

Fortunately, chipped teeth can be easily treated! If you have a chipped tooth and live in Doylestown,  Dr. Link-Bindo, can help repair your tooth beautifully to restore your smile and your confidence with these cosmetic dentistry procedures!

 

1. Bonding with Tooth-Colored Composite Filling

We can use a tooth-colored filling material for more than just filling cavities! Because of the way the composite bonds with your natural tooth structure, it’s also a great choice for repairing a chipped tooth, particularly if the chip is large enough that it creates an opening for bacteria to get in.

The tooth-colored filling material can be blended to perfectly match the natural shade of your tooth for a flawless finish.

 

2. Porcelain Veneers

If the chip is primarily an esthetic issue, a veneer might be a great solution. These thin porcelain shells fit snugly over the tops of your teeth to conceal a variety of common cosmetic problems, including chips and cracks.

 

3. Porcelain Crowns

If your chip is particularly large, has led to a fracture, or is affecting the long-term health of your tooth, a crown might be the right choice. This strong and durable restoration will match the original appearance of your tooth and blend in well with your other teeth. Our goal is for people to notice your friendly smile – not your dental work!

 

So which option is right for you?

The best way to find out is to schedule a consultation at Doylestown Dental Group. Your dentist will examine the chipped tooth to determine the extent of the damage and the likelihood of the inside of your tooth being affected. At this point, we’ll be able to provide you with our expert recommendation for restoration.
