Treating A Chipped Tooth

The first step to restoring a damaged smile is a comprehensive exam. With the results of the comprehensive exam, Dr. Brown and Dr. Newberry will be able to determine if the damage you have sustained is the result of an underlying dental concern. If you tooth damaged is caused by an underlying dental concern, we will treat it prior to treating any cosmetic concerns.

If your tooth damage is due to trauma or an accident, we will restore it using one or more cosmetic or restorative dentistry treatments. After considering factors like the type of damage, size, condition, and health of the teeth, we may recommend one or more of these solutions:

  • Porcelain Veneers– Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent covers that fit over the front and sides of the teeth to cover damaged teeth. Porcelain veneers can address one or more damaged teeth.
  • Dental Crowns– Dental crowns act as a “cap” that can cover broken and damaged teeth.
  • Dental Bonding- Dental bonding can be completed in just one visit. Dental bonding can be designed to blend seamlessly with your existing smile.
