How Do Dentists Repair a Chipped Tooth?
The optimal method for repairing a chipped tooth depends on the chip’s location.
As an alternative, tooth-colored aesthetic bonding may be superior. If the chip may be seen when smiling. The technique of bonding involves putting a tooth-colored resin into a tooth. The resin is immediately placed on the tooth to heal chips, cracks, and discoloration.
The appearance of chipped teeth is improved with veneers. It is a wonderful method for repairing teeth that are broken, discolored, misaligned, chipped, or have gaps. It is a thin porcelain coating that fits over the tooth’s front surface.
Onlays, which are cemented into place, are more durable than fillings. These indirect restorations are made using impressions of fractured teeth.
When the enamel of a back tooth has been damaged, fillings are the most effective treatment. Fillings are used to form and fill the fractured area of a tooth. The dentist then uses a curing light to dry the material.
When the tooth damage is too extensive for a dental filling to restore function fully, a crown is used to treat a chipped tooth.
