Ways to Fix a Chipped or Damaged Tooth


Chipping a tooth is a common problem. Falling, an accident, or biting down on something hard can cause a tooth to break. If you discover you have chipped a tooth, don't panic, your dentist can repair your broken tooth. Dr. Wyman Martin at The Martin Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics, which is located in Roswell, GA, offers a full range of dental services. Here are several treatment options for chipped teeth. 

1. Dental Filling- If you have a chipped tooth, your dentist may fix it with a filling. A filling is a way to restore a chipped or broken tooth back to its normal shape and function. A dental filling will maintain the strength of your tooth and minimize the likelihood of future breakage.

2. Dental Bonding- Dental bonding can make your chipped tooth look like new again. The dental bonding procedure involved applying a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth and hardening it with a dental light. Dental bonding can usually be done in just one office visit. The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. 

3. Dental Crown- A crown is a dental cap that is placed over an existing tooth. Dental crowns are routinely used to restore teeth that are chipped or broken. A crown will make your damaged tooth look whole and healthy again. Dental crowns are incredibly strong and durable. A crown can strengthen your damaged tooth and protect it from further damage. 

4. Dental Veneers- Dental veneers are used to restore teeth that are chipped or cracked. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over one or more teeth to improve your smile. They can be made from resin composite materials or porcelain. A dental veneer covers the front of the tooth with a thicker section to replace the broken part of the tooth.
