We realize that tooth injuries, like chipped teeth, can upset our patients and cause anxiety about their appearance and oral health. However, we want you to know that we are here to help with your dental injuries. Whether you’ve chipped your tooth in a bicycle accident or while simply taking a bite of your favorite food, we have methods for fixing a chipped tooth to preserve your beautiful smile. 

We have multiple ways to fix chipped teeth in our dental office, and the specific treatment we recommend will depend on your specific situation and the severity and location of the injury. Most commonly, we use a dental crown, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers to fix chips in your teeth. 

Dr. Lindsay Essenmacher is skilled in covering smile flaws, like chipped teeth, using these procedures, and she would enjoy helping you fix any issues with your smile.

How Do Treatments for Chipped Teeth Work?

With cosmetic dental bonding, we use the same composite materials we use in tooth-colored fillings to patch chips, fractures, or other cosmetic problems with your teeth. This is a fantastic option for people who just need a small alteration or fix. We can easily complete most dental bonding procedures in one office visit. 

Porcelain veneers are a thin, shell-like structure that we bond to the front of your teeth to cover a wide range of tooth flaws, including chipped teeth. Cosmetic dentists often use veneers to create a flawless, bright smile for patients. Since dental veneers are customized to match your smile, we can use them to cover one tooth or multiple teeth.

Finally, a dental crown is used to cover an entire tooth. If there is extensive damage to the tooth, a dental crown is probably the best option. The crown protects the natural tooth while visually replacing it, so your smile stays intact and your tooth doesn’t suffer further damage.
