When Does a Dental Chip Require Treatment?


Posted on 7/26/2021 by Dr. Dani Stansell
When Does a Dental Chip Require Treatment?Most people inspect their smile while brushing their teeth. Usually everything looks fine on the other side of the mirror, but what do you do if you notice your tooth has a chip on it? Should your chipped tooth be fixed right away?

Dental Chips Understood


A chipped tooth is quite common. In some instances, a dental chip does not require treatment. Chances are, if you did not even notice you have a chipped tooth, you will not need treatment. However, one chip on your tooth can contribute to new chips in the future. For that reason, it is a good idea to get the tooth checked out to see the extent of the dental chip. If your dental chip is large and a significant amount of the tooth is chipped off, we will need to fix that right away as the risk of infection climbs higher as more of the tooth is missing. Give our office a call immediately and we can help you.

If your dental chip is on one of your front teeth, this would be another situation where you may want immediate dental treatment for cosmetic purposes. Having a beautiful smile is important, and a boost to your self confidence. We want to help you have the best functional smile as well as a smile you are proud of using.

Call Our Office to Schedule Your Next Appointment


If you suspect you have a chipped tooth, come see us so we can decide the most appropriate treatment option for you. If you choose to wait, the tooth could become more damaged, and the risk of infection could go up as well, which may affect more teeth. Chipping a tooth can be an inconvenience, but we are here to help you.
