Do you have a chipped tooth? If so, it’s best to visit your dentist, Dr. Josef Mamaliger. Your dentist will examine your tooth and determine the best treatment available so you can return to a top-notch oral health and smile. To help you know a little more about the treatment involved, our dental team is happy to explain the different ways your dentist might repair your tooth.
When it comes to treating a small chip, your dentist might just smooth the tooth enamel and polish it. This will help reshape and enhance the tooth so no one even knows it was chipped.
When it comes to treating a medium chip, your dentist will most likely use a dental filling or dental crown to repair the tooth. This can help restore the tooth’s normal appearance and function. It can also protect the tooth’s inner surfaces and prevent irritation and infection.
When it comes to treating a large chip that exposes the nerve, your dentist might need to repair the tooth with a root canal. This can remove the damaged nerve and restore the health of the tooth. After the root canal, he will likely place a dental crown over the tooth.
