Fixing Chipped Tooth

Restoring Radiance: Reviving Your Smile with Expert Chipped Tooth Repair at Astoria Dental Group

Whether you have a nearly flawless smile that is free from cavities and is pearly white, or you have a smile that can use some improvement, a chipped or cracked tooth can be frustrating and upsetting. Oftentimes a fractured tooth occurs following a trip, fall, or some type of accident, and can immediately make it embarrassing to smile without covering your mouth.

Fixing a chipped tooth and repairing it back to its natural look, feel, and shape is our specialty. Prompt treatment is important to minimize further damage. Schedule an appointment now to get your tooth fixed

What Are My Options?

When you visit our office, we will conduct a full examination of your damaged tooth, along with the surrounding teeth, your jaw, and other areas that may have been affected. If you damaged your tooth in an accident or fall, we want to ensure that none of the adjacent teeth have been loosened or fractured. Once it has been determined that the primary cause of damage is to the single tooth, we will discuss your treatment options. A chipped tooth can be repaired with:

Dental Bonding

Layers of tooth-colored resin will be applied directly to the front of the tooth and then hardened using a curing light. The front of the tooth will then be polished, so that it has the natural look and feel that you are used to. Dental bonding is used primarily for a minor chip or crack that has not affected the overall integrity of the tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

For a more severe crack that has affected a larger portion of the tooth, or has left more than a single tooth damaged, porcelain veneers provide a comprehensive solution that looks and feels like your natural smile. The thin porcelain shells are custom-crafted in a dental laboratory to ensure the most precise fit, and then applied directly to the tooth’s surface

Dental Crown

If one of your posterior teeth has sustained damage, a dental crown or cap may be the best option to protect the tooth and restore its structure. Typically, the use of a crown for a chipped tooth is not as common as using a veneer or bonding treatment, but if necessary, we will provide the option that works best for you.

When a Dental Implant May be Necessary

Oftentimes, a chipped tooth can be restored quickly through a minimally invasive procedure. However, at times, especially if you sustained the chip during some type of blunt trauma, the crack may extend further down the tooth and below the surface the gum line. If this occurs, Dr. Degel may recommend having the tooth extracted and replaced with a dental implant.

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week.
