From time to time, you may be looking for a dentist who can fix chipped teeth. While it can be tempting to ignore a chipped tooth, especially if it is not readily visible, this condition can have serious consequences. A chipped tooth may be painful, but it can also cause a problem for your tongue (by creating irritation) if it is not fixed quickly. The exposed area of a chipped tooth can wear away, causing further damage which may require a root canal. When the repair is prolonged, it also becomes more likely that a cap or a crown will be needed. If the chip results in a crack extending below the gum line, it may be necessary to remove the tooth and replace it with an implant. Don’t delay – you have a chipped tooth, contact us today.
