Chipped Tooth Repair
Well, Dear it a very simple task. Firstly your dentist will determine your tooth or mouth which of the treatment is best for you and your tooth. Dental Filling or Bonding. If you have chipped off just a small piece of tooth enamel, your dentist may repair the damage with a filling. If the repair is to a front tooth or can be seen when you smile, your dentist will likely use a procedure called bonding, which uses a tooth-colored composite resin.
How to Repair Permanently a chipped Front Tooth
Hi Katie from New York! A small chip in your front tooth is easy enough to repair. The dentist will do a white bond over that area, matching the color of the tooth. You will not be able to tell there was anything ever wrong with it! You are asking if there is a way to fix this permanently. Yes there is. You can crown that tooth with an E Max crown. That would be a permanent way of doing it but the structure of the tooth will be reduced and once you crown it you will always have to have a crown on it. I would start with a white bond and check your bite to see if it is correct and go from there! Good luck!
