Your teeth can become chipped due to a variety of reasons ranging from accidents, chewing on hard foods, teeth grinding, or even sports injuries. It can be excruciating if you crack or chip your tooth, and this damage can be minor or extensive, depending on your tooth condition and the severity of the injury.
If the damage is a minor chip, then you can fix it without having to visit the dentist, but if it is extensive, then be prepared to make that trip to your dentist. Before heading to the dentist’s office, you have to address the pain and prevent the injury from escalating further.
Knowing if your tooth is chipped
Some injuries are noticed immediately, while others may not be visible. If you have a chipped tooth, then you would experience discomfort when eating. You will also experience sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. There are a lot of ways your tooth could crack, ranging from one straight crack to several cracks on your tooth’s surface, or a crack that fully splits your tooth in two.
Treatment for a chipped or broken tooth
If you have a chipped or broken tooth, there are a lot of ways that you can get it fixed. At Angel Smile we are experts in teeth restoration. Depending on the severity of the damage, composite fillings, a veneer or a crown will be used to restore your broken tooth. Treatments at Angel Smile in North London are cost-effective, and you are assured of meeting with a dentist as soon as possible because they understand what it means for someone to have a broken tooth.
Utilizing crowns is an ideal way of restoring teeth that have been chipped or damaged due to decay. You can also use a crown if you have discoloured fillings or a root filling that needs a crown to protect the rest of the tooth.
The types of same day dental crowns we at Angel Smile offer are:
- Posterior Crown
- Bonded Crown
- Anterior Crown
- Crown Margin
Composite fillings are tooth-coloured plastics mixed with glass that is used to restore decayed, broken, or chipped teeth. They can also be utilized to improve your smile by tweaking the colour of the teeth or reforming damaged teeth. Getting a composite filling treatment will cost you more than getting the normal silver filling, but it is definitely worth it. While utilizing composites, the dentist can create a shade of white that is almost like that of an actual tooth.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are placed over the front surface of a tooth, which helps to enhance the colour, shape, and position. Veneers make your teeth look healthy and natural as an exact shade of porcelain can be picked to ensure you get the right colour to enhance the color of a tooth.
All these treatments can be done in a day or a single visit as they don’t require a lot of steps with our innovative dental treatment techniques; you can book an appointment with the expert dentists at Angel Smile here to find out more about your options.
