The Right Way to Deal with a Chipped Tooth

Have you chipped your tooth and don’t know what to do? Follow these dental dos to soothe and save your smile.

How to React When Faced with Chipped Teeth

As soon as you notice that you have a chipped tooth, try to find the chip. If you locate it, place it in a plastic bag. Keep the chip moist by either wrapping it in damp gauze or filling the plastic bag with a few drops of water.

See a Family Dentist Immediately

If you experience a chipped tooth, the best way to soothe and save the tooth is to visit a family dentist as quickly as you can. If you’re concerned about the cost of repair, go to the nearest-available, affordable dentist. The longer you wait to fix chipped teeth, the greater your risk of permanent damage, and the higher the cost of treatment at a family dentist – even with an affordable dentist.

Three Treatments for a Chipped Tooth

  1. For chipped teeth without any damage around the nerve, a family dentist can repair and restore the tooth by applying a special adhesive that’s cured and secured with a powerful light.
  2. Another top treatment for chipped teeth is bonding. But it’s important to know that it can be challenging to match the color of the bonding material to the exact shade of the tooth.
  3. If you’re able to locate the chip and take it to your dentist, then it may be able to be secured back onto the tooth to provide a natural look.
