Having a chipped or cracked tooth can be an unsightly embarrassment that might make you hide your smile. It can also have unintended health consequences if the pulp of the tooth is exposed. Fortunately for you, this type of dental problem is easily treated right here in our El Paso, TX dental office.
Dental Treatment Options
We have several different treatment options depending on what type of chip or break you have on your teeth. It’ll be important for your health and aesthetic appearance to get a Dental Exam and X-rays so that we can make the best decision for treatment.
Dental cosmetic bonding is usually the easiest and cheapest way to fix a broken or chipped tooth. Dental bonding involves applying a composite material to the tooth that will match the same color as your natural teeth. There will also be little to no removal of your original tooth with this procedure.
Dental veneers are used to hide the chip or crack on the front side of the teeth. It is a thin custom made shell placed on the front of teeth to give them a new facade. With this treatment, some portion of the tooth may have to be removed to fit the veneer flush with your other teeth.
Crowns are usually the best choice if a large portion of the tooth is now missing. It will completely replace the top portion of the tooth above the crown line so some of the tooth will have to be removed to accommodate the new crown. This crown will also match the color and original shape of your damaged tooth.
