Your teeth, and the enamel that protects them, are some of the hardest substances of your body. Unfortunately, despite their strength, they can still be damaged, broken, and chipped.
Teeth can be chipped due to many different reasons. They can be caused by physical accidents, such as playing football without a mouth guard, mistreating your teeth by eating ice or other hard foods, or simply not practicing good dental health habits, like brushing your teeth regularly. Failing to take care of your teeth can lead to decay and erosion, leaving teeth weak and more susceptible to damage like chipping.
Fortunately, a chipped tooth can be fixed by our LA dentists. An expert in treatment of chipped tooth in Los Angeles will have several different ways to restore your damaged tooth. Your treatment may be dependent on the severity of your case.
Some of these treatments include:
- Crowns are the most common form of restorative treatment. Crowns are like caps that are placed on the top of your tooth.
- Bonding, which involves conditioning liquid, a putty-like substance, and an ultraviolet light to harden.
- These are covers for your teeth that hide any damage.
- Root canals, which are employed when a crack is big enough to have affected the root of a tooth.
And others. Consult with our dentist to learn more.
