Chipped/Broken Tooth

Dental enamel is the hardest, most mineralized structure in the human body. It is extremely strong and durable; however, trauma, such as a fall, a blow to the face, or biting down on something hard can cause a tooth to chip or break.

In addition, if a tooth has already been weakened by decay or wear over time, it is likely to chip or break more easily.

Don't Wait For An Infection To Grow!

If you have a chipped or broken tooth, it is recommended to see your dentist as soon as possible. In most cases, there are simple treatment solutions to restore the broken tooth. If a broken tooth is left untreated, there is a chance it could break further or become infected. Early intervention and treatment give you your best chance at maintaining the health of the tooth.

Chipped or broken teeth may be asymptomatic or it may be extremely painful. Try to avoid biting down on the tooth and eat softer foods, if possible. If you are in pain, ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) is recommended for dental pain.

Treatment options for Chipped and Fractured Teeth depend on how severely the tooth is broken.

  • Dental filling/bonding: If the chip is relatively minor a white resin filling may be sufficient to restore the look, feel, and function of the tooth.
  • Dental veneer or crown: If the damage to the tooth is extensive, a lab-made restoration (ie. a crown or veneer) may be required.
  • Root canal: If the nerve inside the tooth is exposed, the tooth will start to get infected. A root canal is required to remove the nerve tissue and restore the health of the tooth.
