When we were children, it was not all that unusual for us to chip a baby tooth. Lots of kids chip their teeth playing sports, or during a fall. If you chip a tooth during childhood, it is not that big of a deal because your baby teeth fall out and are replaced by adult teeth.
However, if you chip your teeth during adulthood, you have to live with it. The good news is, you don't have to. There are many restorative options we can give you if you chip a tooth.
Sometimes, a tooth can be fixed by just putting a filling on the surface of the tooth in order to fill in a hole in your tooth. Fillings are best used when the chip is in the middle of the tooth, or when the chip is close to the gumline.
Sometimes, the chip is so large, we can't fix it with a filling. This often happens when there has been trauma to the tooth area due to an accident. In those cases, we can use a crown in order to restore the tooth to the right size and color to match the rest of your teeth.
Dental bridges can replace multiple chipped teeth at one time, especially if some of the teeth have broken off completely. Dental bridges usually consist of two teeth with crowns that act as anchors for a partial denture. Many people choose dental bridges, because they are cost effective.
We often use dental implants because they are often the best option for our clients. Dental implants are the closest thing to a real tooth that we can do. Because the implant screws directly into the jawbone, it continues to stimulate the jawbone so that it doesn't deteriorate.
