A chipped tooth is a common dental issue that can occur because of biting, falling, being hit in the mouth or even due to existing tooth decay. It may also be an indication of a more severe underlying problem of teeth grinding. The damage can cause severe pain the mouth while also affecting the look and feel of your smile. Dr Olstein has over 30 years of experience in repairing chipped teeth.
Symptoms of cracked or chipped teeth can include pain in the impacted area or if it’s a back tooth you can develop a sore tongue due to rubbing against a sharp edge. If the discomfort continues it may be due to a damaged nerve or blood vessel. If this is the case, you should book an appointment urgently.
Treatments for A Chipped Tooth
Treatment types can vary depending on the severity of the damage. If only a small amount of enamel has been chipped off, the tooth can be repaired with a special dental filling.
A badly cracked, fractured or chipped tooth may require a more complex procedure. It can be replaced with either a high-quality dental crown, veneer or inlay that will protect the rest of the tooth while repairing the tooth’s outward appearance.
