Ideally, you would never have to visit your local Nederland, TX, to have an issue like a chipped tooth repaired, but unlike most dental issues like cavities, a chip in a tooth cannot be prevented with good oral hygiene.

Often, chips are caused by trauma hitting the tooth and causing the break. 

Depending on the severity of the chip, the dentist may have to recommend different solutions to protect the tooth's long-term health. If the chip goes deep enough into the tooth, it may be necessary to treat the tooth with a filling or crown instead of dental bonding, but for many chips and cracks, dental bonding can make the tooth look like the accident never happened. 

Dental Bonding Can Help

Cracking or chipping a tooth is not the end of the world. Though it may seem drastic when it happens with modern cosmetic dentistry options, there are several ways we can help fix your smile.

Dental bonding is a minimally invasive and cost-effective way to help restore the appearance of a tooth after it is chipped.

Using dental bonding, we can replace missing or chipped-away portions of the tooth, once again protecting the layers of the tooth under the enamel from infection and restoring the tooth's appearance to look natural. 

Other dental issues that dental bonding can improve include:

  • Pitting on the surface of teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Surface cracks
  • Some damage caused by trauma
