What If I’ve Chipped My Tooth?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he encourages patients who have suffered sudden dental trauma to contact our office for an immediate solution.

If you’ve experienced a chipped tooth, don’t hesitate to reach out to us, and we’ll promptly assess the situation to find the most suitable solution. There are several effective methods to address a chipped tooth, and the choice depends on the extent of the damage. For minor chips that are noticeable but not extensive, we can often resolve the issue by skillfully polishing the affected area. In cases where polishing is not the optimal solution, we can employ a technique called a composite veneer. This procedure allows us to eliminate the chip discreetly, leaving your tooth looking as if it was never chipped in the first place.

If you have the chipped portions of your tooth, bring them along when you visit. In some instances, I’ve successfully reconstructed chipped teeth by reassembling the pieces, restoring the tooth’s appearance and functionality even after more than a decade. For more severe chips, we may recommend the placement of a crown or a veneer. A veneer is essentially a partial crown, as it involves applying a protective shell over the tooth to reinforce its structure. Regardless of the severity of the chip, our primary goal is to save your tooth while ensuring it looks and functions at its best. Feel free to contact us for assistance; we’re committed to helping you find the best solution for your chipped tooth.
