How does a dentist fix a chipped tooth?

A chipped or cracked tooth can detract from your smile, but it can also open your tooth to infection and decay. For these reasons, we recommend talking to our Madison, AL dentist if you’ve chipped, injured, or fractured your tooth.

The most common treatment for a chipped tooth is a quality dental crown in Madison, AL. This is a cap that slips over your tooth to the gumline. It is always colored and shaped to look like your natural teeth. A crown protects a vulnerable tooth and prevents further breakage.

In some cases, when the chip is not significant, your dentist may suggest dental bonding, which is a tooth-colored filling material used in another capacity. With this option, your dentist spreads the resin, conceals the chip or flaw, and sets the work with a specialty light. Bonding is an inexpensive cosmetic option that helps restore confidence.
