I chipped my tooth. Can you help?

No matter how careful you are, sometimes chipping a tooth is inevitable. Whether you had an accident or bit into something hard, chips happen and we are here to help restore your appearance and health.

If your chipped tooth is very minor, we may be able to get away with just smoothing it off so that you don’t have a sharp edge that catches your cheek or tongue. In other cases, especially if the chip is unattractive or if you have exposed dentin, we can fix it with dental bonding.

Dental bonding utilizes the same white filling material we use for cavities. It is versatile and strong. It also comes in a variety of shades to match to your natural teeth and looks attractive. Another benefit of dental bonding is that it is very affordable compared to cosmetic treatments. We do not need to use a dental lab. 

We can fix things like small chips and gaps between your teeth with dental bonding, but bigger damage, stains, breaks, and larger aesthetic problems may require a different kind of procedure.

To find out if cosmetic bonding will work for you, give us a call to set up an evaluation. We look forward to helping you achieve your dental goals.
