Broken and Chipped Tooth

Chipped Tooth

? What can be done if you have a chipped tooth? With a chipped or broken tooth, just depending on where it’s located in the mouth, there’s a couple different options for you. Front of the mouth:  Option 1: cosmetic bonding when it's in the front of the mouth. Option 2:  A large break on a front tooth may require porcelain crown or veneer. Back of the mouth: Option 1:  Sometimes a smaller chip in a back tooth can accept tooth colored filling.  Because back teeth generate so much force ,  white filling might not be able to withstand that force. Option 2:  When the chip or break is large and it involves a cusp of a tooth, it needs to get a porcelain restoration (inlay or onlay)
