What Dublin patients can do if enamel has chipped off a tooth

Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, Star Brite Dental Provides

When enamel has chipped off a tooth, patients are often worried about what can be done to repair it. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental Dublin can assess the situation and determine what is necessary to protect the rest of the tooth and bring the smile back to its original beauty.

Why might a tooth be chipped?

A chipped tooth typically results from some sort of impact. The tooth may chip or even crack. Regardless of how it occurs or how much of an effect it has on a tooth, patients who experience a chipped tooth should make an appointment with their dentist as soon as possible for an assessment and to discuss restoration solutions.

How might Dr. Munira Lokhandwala repair a chipped tooth?

Chipped teeth can be restored in a variety of ways. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic restorations that are bonded over the front of a tooth like a facing. They can cover imperfections such as chipped teeth as well as teeth that are stained, misaligned, or gapped. These versatile restorations are commonly used in this situation when the chipped tooth is near the front of the smile. Another option is a dental crown. Dental crowns are full “caps” that cover the entire tooth and give it an extra layer of protection and strength. These are often used when the chipped tooth is near the back of the mouth. For small aesthetic chips, composite resin bonding may be considered.
