Causes of Chips
To get the best restoration, we must first understand what caused your chipped tooth. Causes of chipped teeth include:
- Poor habits (especially biting non-food objects)
- Old white fillings wearing out
It's also important to remember that, left untreated, small chips become larger chips, so it's a good idea to get your chipped tooth fixed right away.
Chipped Tooth Treatment Options
The next step to ensure you get the best restoration for your chipped tooth is to have a variety of restoration options available. We offer:
- Dental bonding
- Porcelain veneers
Which one is right for you will depend on the aesthetics of your smiling. Tooth smoothing is done only for small chips where the result will still be proportional and even.
Dental bonding is used for small to medium chips. This is a great option: it can be completed today. We have great experiences color matching dental bonding so it will blend in invisibly. And bonding can last for people who have good, even bites.
Medium to large chips may require porcelain veneers, which can not only improve the appearance of the tooth, but strengthen it as well.
Look Years Younger with a "Smile Lift"
A "Smile Lift" is an inexpensive way to give yourself a more youthful appearance. If you have been living with a number of small chips, we can smooth them or bond them to give your smile a rejuvenated appearance. Combined with teeth whitening, you will be delighted at how much younger, fitter, and more attractive you look.
