I Have a Chip in My Front Tooth! What Are My Options?

You’re enjoying TV and popcorn with your kids on a Friday night when you accidentally bite down hard on an unpopped kernel. Your tongue finds the rough spot, and your fear is confirmed – you chipped a tooth.

Damaging a tooth in this way can be frustrating because even a small chip can throw off the symmetry of your smile. But don’t spend too much time worrying about your appearance because cosmetic dentistry at our Tucson dental office offers lots of solutions.

Before we explain your options, remember that every person is unique. These are excellent solutions for a chipped tooth, but the one we recommend will take all your needs into account.

Cosmetic Bonding

When we create fillings today, we use a composite material that is made up of glass and resin particles. This combination creates an appearance that is very similar to natural dental enamel, making it perfect for small repairs.

The process involves using the material to build up a chipped tooth to fill it in and restore the appearance of your tooth. Dental bonding is durable but will need to be replaced approximately every ten years.

Porcelain Veneers in the 85749 Area

Veneers are a versatile esthetic restoration because they mimic the natural appearance of dental enamel and cover a tooth to give it a new surface. They are a durable solution that lasts about ten years and conceals chipped or broken teeth as well as other imperfections like uneven gaps and spacing and slightly crooked teeth.

Let Us Help Restore Your Smile

Whether your concern is a chipped tooth or something more involved, we provide cosmetic dentistry treatments in Tucson that will restore your smile. We will work with you to find the perfect solution that best fits all your needs including your lifestyle, timeline, and budget.
