Fixing A Chipped Tooth

Posted on September 10th, 2019 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Having a chipped tooth ruins your mouth’s aesthetic and overall self-confidence. Luckily, today it’s easy to repair this dental damage and our cosmetic dentist in the South Loop is ready to give you different options to make this happen. Continue reading to discover different ways to fix a chipped tooth.

Bonding

Bonding is the quickest and cost-efficient option to repair a chip. This process involves the application of a composite filling material that your dentist will color and shape to match your original, chipped tooth. With bonding, little to no removal of your existing tooth surface is needed which makes this a popular procedure. Did you know that you can preserve your chipped-off portion of the tooth for your dentist to reattach using bonding? This is not as common as using the composite filling, but it can still be done.

Veneers

A dental veneer can hide smaller areas of a missing tooth as it’s a thin, custom-made shell that’s placed on the front of the tooth. Some removal of your existing chipped tooth may have to happen in order to fit the veneer.

Crown

In the case of a largely chipped tooth, getting a crown might be your best option. Crowns can be made of all-ceramic or porcelain fused to metal crowns and, like the bonding, will match the color of your other teeth.
Contact us today if you have a chipped tooth that needs to be repaired. Our cosmetic dentist in the South Loop can’t wait to give you back the smile you deserve.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
