3 Ways to Fix a Chipped Tooth | 08012 Dentist

April 15, 2024

Repairing a chipped tooth is essential for both comfort and confidence. At South Jersey Family Dental in Turnersville, we offer various solutions tailored to your specific needs. Here are three effective options to address a chipped tooth:

  1. Dental Bonding: Ideal for minor cosmetic chips, dental bonding is a quick and straightforward solution. During this process, we roughen the enamel of the affected tooth to enhance adhesion. Then, composite material is applied, shaped to replace the chip, and hardened with a curing light. With proper care, bonding can last up to ten years.
  2. Porcelain Veneers: For more extensive damage or multiple chips, porcelain veneers may be recommended. These thin shells of porcelain are custom-made to cover the front surface of your teeth, restoring their appearance and strength. The procedure involves removing a small amount of tooth structure, taking impressions, and placing temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready. Once applied, veneers provide a natural, beautiful smile.
  3. Dental Crowns: When a significant portion of the tooth is missing or damaged, dental crowns offer a durable solution. These caps cover the entire tooth, restoring its shape, size, and function. Crowns are particularly effective for addressing pain during chewing or drinking caused by extensive damage or decay.

If you’ve chipped a tooth, don’t hesitate to contact us for prompt and personalized care. Our experienced team will assess your situation and recommend the most suitable treatment option to restore your oral health and confidence. With our comprehensive solutions, you can enjoy a repaired smile and peace of mind. Schedule your appointment with South Jersey Family Dental today.
