What Should I Do If I’ve Chipped My Tooth?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell advises prompt attention for a chipped tooth to prevent further damage.

If you’ve chipped a tooth, it’s important to address it promptly to avoid further damage or discomfort. We encourage you to give us a call, and we’ll do our best to schedule you for a same-day appointment. Once you’re here, we can assess the extent of the chip and determine the best course of action to repair it.
The repair might involve a simple filling or, depending on the severity, a crown might be necessary to fully restore the tooth’s function and appearance. We typically start with an X-ray to gauge the depth of the chip and to check for any underlying issues caused by trauma.
So, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a chipped tooth. We’re here to help and can provide the necessary treatment to get your smile back to its best condition.
