How do dentists fix a Tooth with a chip?
The best way to repair a chipped tooth depends on where the chip is.
Tooth-colored cosmetic bonding may be a better alternative If the chip is visible when you smile. Bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored resin to a tooth. The resin is applied directly onto the tooth to repair chips, cracks, and stains/discoloration.
Veneers for chipped teeth improve the look of a tooth. It is an excellent way to repair teeth that are chipped, damaged, discolored, misaligned, or have gaps. It is a thin covering of porcelain that fits over the front surface of a tooth.
Onlays are cemented into place and offer a more durable option than fillings. Impression of broken teeth is used to create these indirect restorations.
When the enamel of a back tooth has chipped, fillings are the best therapy. Fillings shape and cover the chipped portion of the tooth. The dentist then dries it with a curing light.
When the damage to the tooth is too severe for a dental filling to completely restore functioning, a crown for a chipped tooth is employed.
