Top Treatments for Chipped Teeth

You don’t have to suffer a chipped tooth. Learn what you need to do to fix the dental damage.

The First Thing to Do When You Have Chipped Teeth

The moment you see that you have a chipped tooth, search for the chipped portion. If you find it, place it in a plastic bag. Keep the chip moist by either wrapping it in damp gauze or filling the plastic bag with a few drops of water.

Get to a Family Dentist Fast

The most important thing to do when you suffer a chipped tooth is get it treated by a family dentist as quickly as possible. If you’re concerned about the cost of repair, go to the nearest-available, affordable dentist. The longer you wait to fix chipped teeth at a family dentist, the greater your risk of permanent damage and the higher the cost of treatment, even with an affordable dentist.

Three Wisest Ways to Treat a Chipped Tooth

  1. If the tooth isn’t fractured near the nerve, a family dentist can apply a special light-powered adhesive to repair the chip and restore the tooth.
  2. Bonding can also repair chipped teeth. But it can be hard to match the color of the bonding material to your tooth, which may make the bonding noticeable.
  3. If you’re able to locate the chip and take it to your dentist, then it may be able to be secured back onto the tooth to provide a natural look.
