Here are 3 most common of your options to repair your chipped teeth so you can smile with confidence again.
1. Dental Veneers: Veneers are the most common and recommend for very light chipping. Made out of porcelain, veneers are thin slivers that cover the chipped portion of the teeth. They are bonded with the outer, visible surface of the tooth in such a way that it becomes hard to differentiate. You can decide how you want your veneer to look, so if you want better alignment, you can have your veneer shaped that way. However, this treatment is not for them who grinds their teeth, because it can wear the veneer down and shorten its lifespan.
2. Dental Bonding: Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding, is an effective way to repair chipped, cracked, misshapen, gapped, or decayed teeth. This dental procedure does not need anesthesia unless cavities have to be bonded. During the procedure, a dentist uses a “filling” – a composite resin to fill the missing enamel. The dentist will etch the chipped tooth so that the bonding material adheres securely. An adhesive material is applied, after which the composite resin is attached and shaped to ensure a good bite. Once the dentist checks the bite, an ultraviolet light is used to solidify the adhesive material.
3. Dental Crowns: If you have larger chips, significant tooth decay or chips in the back teeth, then dental crown is the treatment for you. A dental crown is nothing but a tooth–shaped cap that covers a large surface of the damaged tooth. If there is excess of decay, then root canal may have to be performed on the tooth to make the tooth strong enough to support the crown. A dental crown protects your damaged tooth.
