How to Handle a Chipped Tooth

Anyone can chip a tooth at any time. If it happens to you, follow these expert tips to treat your chipped teeth.

Sink Your Teeth into Ways to Treat 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.

Have a Family Dentist Treat Your Tooth

Dental experts agree that the most important thing to do when you experience a chipped tooth is to visit a family dentist immediately. If you’re concerned about the cost of repair, go to the nearest 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.

Types of Treatment for a Chipped Tooth

  • If the tooth isn’t fractured near the nerve, a family dentist can apply a special light-powered adhesive to repair the chip and restore the tooth.
  • Another popular treatment for chipped teeth is bonding. Just be aware that it can be hard to match the color of the bonding material to the exact shade of the tooth.
  • 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.
