Fixing A Chipped Tooth

Published on September 10th, 2019

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.
