Missing teeth? We help you smile again.
Most people experience a cracked or chipped tooth at least once in their lifetime. This can be due to many reasons: an unstable bite, worn or broken teeth, age, injuries, bruxism, underlying cavities, or previous dental work. It doesn’t matter how you chipped your tooth, It’s important to address these issues immediately to avoid further complications such as tooth sensitivity, cavities, or infection.
Don’t let chipped or cracked teeth ruin your smile and jeopardize your oral health. At MillBridge Dentistry, we offer comprehensive solutions for visible damage, pain, and other dental issues caused by chips and cracks. Dr. Anait and Dr. Armen will assess the damage and design a personalized treatment plan for you. Request an appointment today.
What causes chipped or cracked teeth
Chipped or cracked teeth can be caused by a variety of factors. Some common causes include:
- Trauma or injury to the mouth
- Clenching or grinding of the teeth (bruxism)
- Chewing hard foods or objects
- Tooth decay or cavities
- Old fillings or dental work that have become worn or damaged
- Weak or brittle teeth due to age, genetics, or certain medical conditions
- Malocclusion (an improper bite)
- Using the teeth as tools (such as to open bottles or packages)
- Acidity or erosion from consuming highly acidic foods and beverages
It’s important to note that some teeth may be more susceptible to chipping or cracking than others, such as teeth that are already weakened by decay or those that have had previous dental work.
Regardless of the cause of your chipped teeth, our team at MillBridge Dentistry is here to help you find the appropriate treatment and bring back the beauty and well-being of your smile.
Treatments for chipped or cracked teeth
A common and safe method of fixing broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. This may be the best choice if your damaged tooth has a cavity.
An effective solution for covering visible cracks and chips, as well as protecting the tooth from further damage. Available in ceramic, porcelain, or metal material, crowns can help restore the structure of a compromised tooth.
Another option for improving the appearance of your smile and protecting the tooth’s surface from further damage. Veneers, which look and feel like natural teeth, are a popular treatment for various cosmetic concerns.
This solution involves removing the damaged tooth and replacing it with an implant. This may be the best option if the tooth is cracked or chipped close to the gum line or if it has sustained structural damage.
If a tooth is cracked or damaged down to the root, it may become infected. A root canal, which involves removing the infection and placing a crown over the tooth, may be recommended in such cases.
