Restore Chipped Tooth
Get your chipped tooth checked before it becomes a bigger problem
A chipped tooth is a dental injury that can be easily repaired with prompt treatment.
Teeth that have chips or cracks in them are not only unsightly, but if they are not addressed right away they can lead to pain and further damage. Treatments for these types of severe dental problems can also be complicated and expensive.
Comfort Care Dental offers prompt and reliable treatment for chipped teeth. We offer various treatment options to repair the damage and restore your smile. Fillings and crowns are two of the most common treatments for repairing chipped teeth. Fillings are used to fill in the gaps left by the chip, while crowns are placed over the entire tooth to protect it from further damage. In some cases, veneers may also be used to restore damaged teeth. Whenever you have a chipped tooth, make an appointment with Comfort Care Dental and let us help you get your smile back!
Reasons why you need treatment for a chipped tooth
You could get cuts on your mouth.
If a tooth is chipped, the edges can cut the lips, cheeks, and tongue, leading to painful wounds or sores that make it harder to eat, drink or talk.
It can lead to a more extensive fracture.
A chipped tooth is weaker and more prone to breakage. It is important to know what caused the tooth to break to prevent it from occurring again.
It can cause pain.
When a portion of the tooth gets broken off, the inner part of the tooth becomes exposed and is more susceptible to bacterial infection. This can lead to severe pain and tooth decay.
Not feeling pain can be a sign of a more severe complication
A tooth's nerve allows us to feel pain when something is wrong with the tooth. In some cases, trauma is so severe that the nerve becomes nonresponsive and dies. While most patients would think that not feeling pain is okay, that's not true because, even if the nerve dies, the disease will progress inside the tooth, and eventually, the patient will only notice it once it has already worsened.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Identifying the cause of the chipped tooth is the first step in treating it. This is done to prevent recurrence and further tooth fracture. Once the cause of chipping is addressed, your dentist will assess the extent of the fracture. Depending on the extent of the damage, your dentist will decide if smoothening the sharp edges will suffice or if your tooth needs to be restored with a bonding restoration.
In some cases, your dentist can also suggest placing a veneer to restore the tooth’s natural shape or a dental crown to reinforce the tooth. In severe cases, root canal treatment may also be needed to address the damage or infection that may have reached the deeper parts of the tooth.
In many cases, a chipped tooth can be repaired by smoothening the sharp edges or a simple filling. However, if a chipped tooth is ignored and not addressed right away, the damage can worsen and lead to pain and further breakage of the tooth. In cases like this, a chipped tooth that could have been repaired with a simple procedure now requires a complicated treatment process that is also more invasive and more expensive.
