Chipped Teeth – Your Dentist Has Solutions

dca-blog_chipped-tooth-sad-illustration

The sudden discovery of a piece of your own broken tooth in your mouth is disconcerting. It often happens when you’ve just bitten into something hard, or you’re chewing ice. Your tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body, but it’s not unbreakable. Falling, receiving a blow to your face, or biting into hard foods can cause your teeth to break or chip, especially if they are already weakened by decay. If you break or chip your tooth, there’s no need for alarm. An affordable dentist has many ways to restore your tooth’s function and appearance.

Caring for a Chipped Tooth



After you sustain a chipped tooth, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as you can. A fractured or chipped tooth is vulnerable to further damage and infection, which could eventually result in tooth loss. Until you can see your dentist, rinse your mouth with salted water and cover any jagged or irritating areas of the tooth with dental wax to prevent lip and cheek injuries. Eat soft foods, and try not to use the broken tooth.

Repair Options for Chipped Teeth



If you’ve damaged a molar, your dentist may be able to repair your tooth with a simple dental filling. When a front tooth is damaged, bonding is usually the method of choice; this procedure uses a tooth-colored resin that blends in with the natural color of the tooth. A cap or crown may be the best solution for back teeth with extensive decay. Crowns are usually made from gold, porcelain resin, ceramic, or blended materials. Veneers are custom-made, thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain applied to a natural tooth’s surface; they completely cover the surface of the tooth. 
If your tooth is damaged badly enough to expose the pulp, your dentist may perform a root canal. This procedure involves removing the tooth’s pulp and nerve and then cleaning the empty canal and sealing it.
