A chipped tooth can occur from biting into something too hard, being struck in the mouth, or from severe grinding and clenching of your teeth.
Treatment Options for Chipped Teeth
Before deciding the proper treatment option for your chipped tooth, our New Braunfels dentist will need to evaluate it and determine its severity.
Small Chipped Tooth Treatment & Repair Options
A small superficial chip is a quick and easy fix that’s inexpensive and doesn’t even require any anesthetic (numbing.) Through a procedure called enamel plasty or “contouring,” our dentist can smooth out your chip and shape your tooth to make it look as if nothing ever happened.
Medium Chipped Tooth Treatment & Repair Options
A medium-sized chip may require you to undergo a procedure where our dentist will bond a tooth-colored composite material over the missing area and shape a new section of tooth for you. Again, anesthetic usually isn’t needed.
Large Chipped Tooth Treatment & Repair Options
For teeth that are a victim to large chips, you may require something stronger like a dental crown. This restoration is a tooth cover that’s made from a very durable material which is intended to protect your weak tooth for a long time. Crowns are custom made to the size, shape, and shade of your natural teeth.
