A chipped tooth can be a sudden and unwelcome disruption to your daily life, affecting both your appearance and oral health. Whether it is a result of an accidental injury or wear and tear over time, a chipped tooth can cause discomfort and self-consciousness. Fortunately, Radiant Smiles is the right place to come for expert chipped tooth repair. Our dental team specializes in restoring the integrity and aesthetics of your smile. We have multiple chipped tooth repair options available to restore your damaged tooth at our dental center in Arlington, VA.
Chipped teeth may seem like minor inconveniences, but they can pose significant dangers to your oral health. Beyond the immediate aesthetic concerns, chipped teeth can lead to more severe issues, including tooth sensitivity, increased susceptibility to decay, and even compromised structural integrity. When left untreated, a chipped tooth can worsen over time, potentially causing further damage or infections that may require more extensive and costly dental procedures. To preserve your oral health and overall well-being, it is crucial to address chipped teeth promptly to prevent further complications.
Chipped or Broken Tooth Restoration
Depending on the extent of the damage to your tooth, there are various restoration options for repairing a chipped, cracked or broken tooth. Minor chips can be fixed with dental bonding, which can be completed in one office visit. For more extensive chips or cracks, fillings, onlays or overlays may be needed to restore and protect the tooth. Broken teeth may require a dental crown or complete replacement if the tooth cannot be saved.
Dr. Chandna at Radiant Smiles believes in conservative treatments for damaged teeth. She evaluates the damage and provides recommendations personalized to each patient. Whenever possible, she wants to save the tooth while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.
