Your teeth are tough, but with enough force, you can chip or break a tooth. If you have chipped teeth from sports injuries, auto accidents or trauma, it can impact the health and appearance of your smile. Our team at Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces offers quick chipped tooth repair to protect your teeth from further damage and restore a beautiful smile. We have two locations in San Antonio for chipped tooth repair to improve your smile.
A chipped tooth is not uncommon. A fall or impact to your mouth can chip a tooth. After the initial injury, your chipped tooth may not be painful, but it could detract from the appearance and health of your smile. A chip in the tooth’s exterior leaves the tooth exposed and vulnerable to decay. Plus, if the tooth is in the front, it can change the look of your smile. Chipped tooth repair can protect the tooth from decay and further damage while improving the overall look of your smile.
White Fillings, Bonding or Crowns for Broken Teeth
Most chipped teeth can be fixed with a dental filling or bonding. At Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces, we offer composite fillings or bonding to repair chipped or cracked teeth. Small chips or cracks can be fixed with composite resin. We can color-match dental resin to your natural tooth color to ensure the repair blends with your smile. Dental resin can be shaped to replace the chipped tooth material, and then it is cured, hardened and polished.
For larger chips or broken teeth, white porcelain inlays, onlays or dental crowns can be used to repair and protect the tooth. Another option is porcelain veneers that can cover the deformed tooth.
If you have a chipped tooth that needs repair, come see our cosmetic dentists at Smile Structure Dentistry & Braces. We offer several options for chipped tooth repair at our clinics in San Antonio.
