Got a Chipped Tooth? This is How Your Dentist Will Treat It

Posted .

Chipping a tooth can be a scary experience, but there is no need to worry. Your dentist, Dr. Steven Thompson, can treat your chipped tooth and restore your oral health if you just visit Thompson Dental Care. Our dental team will be happy to give you the treatment details.

When you have a small chip, your dentist will probably smooth the tooth enamel to reshape the tooth. Once he is finished, he will polish it to boost its appearance.

When you have a medium chip, your dentist will probably restore the tooth with a dental filling or dental crown. These restorations will restore the tooth’s normal appearance and function and will protect the inner layers of the tooth from irritation and infection.

When you have a large chip, your dentist will probably use root canal therapy if the nerve was exposed. This treatment will remove the damaged nerve and restore the tooth’s health. After the treatment, your dentist will cover and protect the tooth with a dental crown.
