A chipped tooth is a common dental issue occurring because of:
- Being hit in the mouth
- Tooth decay
It is also an indication of tooth grinding or bruxism. The damage causes 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 teeth include pain in the impacted area. However, if it’s a back tooth, you can develop a sore tongue due to rubbing against a sharp edge. Damaged nerves and blood vessels are not uncommon and can cause continued pain.
Treatments for A Chipped Tooth
Treatment types vary depending on the severity of the damage. A special dental filling will be used if a small amount of enamel has been chipped off.
A badly cracked, fractured or chipped tooth will require a more complex procedure. We replace the tooth with either a high-quality dental crown, veneer or inlay that protects the rest of the tooth while repairing the tooth’s outward appearance.
Never treat the tooth at home. Always make an appointment if you notice any damage.
Dr Olstein uses the best dental equipment and technology to safely treat the issue. Most importantly, he gives you a beautiful smile back with no signs of chips, fractures or otherwise unhealthy teeth.
