How does my Dentist fix Chipped Teeth?
Depending on the severity of the chip, our experienced dentist in the Fairfax area, Dr. Pamela Marzban, may recommend one of the following dental treatments:
A chipped tooth can cause you to be dissatisfied with your smile. Our dentist believes it is important for each of her patients to be proud of his or her smile, and we want to help you find the best ways to address any area of your smile with which you are unhappy. A large chip may even affect your teeth functionally, if it makes your bite unbalanced or makes it uncomfortable to bite or chew.
With a porcelain veneer, our dentist can conceal the tooth chip. A veneer creates a new tooth surface, covering up chips, stains and any other imperfections of the enamel. Another option is teeth bonding, which is a moldable composite resin. A small amount of resin can be molded into the chipped area, restoring the shape of your tooth. If the chip is large and threatens the structure of your tooth, you may need a dental crown. A crown holds together a weak or vulnerable tooth.
The only way to learn about your options for fixing a chipped tooth is to visit our experienced dentist. She will examine your tooth and describe all the ways you can repair it.
