Should I Worry About a Chipped Tooth?

person looking at teeth in mirrorChipping your tooth is a scary experience. It’s not unusual to feel worried and unsure of what to do next. After all, it is an important part of our body and we want to ensure it looks as good as possible! But don’t worry – chipped teeth are fairly common and there are steps you can take to fix them.

Common Causes

Common causes can include eating or drinking too hard, grinding your teeth in your sleep, biting into something hard (like a piece of candy), and even trauma from sports or a car accident. In some cases, the cause may be due to weakened tooth enamel caused by poor oral hygiene.

Now that you know the cause, let’s talk about what can be done. If the chip is minor (meaning it isn’t affecting your ability to eat or speak), then you may not need to do anything right away. However, if the chip is causing pain or discomfort, then it’s best to visit our practice as soon as possible. We can advise you on the best course of treatment, which may include filling in the broken tooth with a cosmetic dental procedure such as bonding or veneers. In more extreme cases, a dental crown may be necessary to protect and preserve the affected tooth.

No matter what the case is, it’s important to take action as soon as possible. A broken tooth can lead to other oral health issues if left untreated, so it’s best to seek professional advice immediately. We will be able to determine the best course of action and restore your smile back to its original beauty!
