Proper care for a chipped tooth
Drs. Vo and Breckley believe in the importance of patient education. If you are bleeding, apply gauze to the affected area until it stops. To relieve pain and to reduce swelling, place an ice pack on the outside of the mouth. We also recommend calling our office at (770) 423-1132 to schedule an appointment.
Treating a chipped tooth
At your appointment, the dentist will examine the tooth as well as your gums and mouth. The dentist can provide treatment that restores health and beauty to the smile. The extent of damage and tooth location can determine the recommended treatment. For a minor chip, the dentist may recommend dental bonding or a veneer to disguise the imperfection.
Dental bonding involves placing composite resin onto the affected tooth to restore its beauty. The material is versatile and can be matched to the natural tooth color. Veneers are wafer thin shells placed on chipped or cracked teeth. They are made of porcelain, a stain resistant and durable material that blends beautifully with the smile. Veneer treatment may be ideal for a chipped tooth that shows when smiling. If the tooth is severely damaged, a dental crown may be recommended. A dental crown can strengthen and protect a tooth as well as provide the additional support needed for biting and chewing.
