Do you have a chipped tooth which you are avoiding repairing? A single chipped tooth needs care and repair to prevent tooth decay from developing in the damaged enamel. This can often be accomplished by having your Complete Dental Care dentist apply a single filling. However, there are some instances when multiple teeth can become chipped as well. This might be the result of grinding your teeth or an accidental injury to the face.
If any of the chips are large or if they compromise a significant amount of tooth enamel, Dr. Robert Doyle will likely recommend restoring all of the tooth enamel with a dental crown.
If one or more teeth are deeply chipped and causing you pain, then our dentist might need to perform a root canal to remove the damaged internal structures of the tooth before fitting it with a crown.
Should you have multiple teeth with small chips in your smile, our dentist might be able to fit you for a set of porcelain dental veneers. These are porcelain shells that cover the faces of the teeth. They will effectively address the chips and give you a white and winning smile.
If you have one or more chipped teeth that would benefit from a smile restoration, we invite you to call Complete Dental Care in Steubenville, Ohio, at 740-314-4941 today to set up an appointment. Our goal is to help you restore and maintain your confident, healthy smile!
