The Woodlands and Houston, TX
Chipped teeth can impact the appearance of your smile. Worse, this common dental problem can impact functionality and eventually require tooth extraction. Chips allow sensitive pulp to be exposed and irritated, and can even increase risks for infection and disease. This makes dealing with chips as soon as they occur very important. Fortunately, fixing chipped teeth is neither difficult nor cost prohibitive.
The Woodlands cosmetic dentist Dr. Scott Young offers a number of solutions for chipped and cracked teeth. Two of the most popular are:
- Dental bonding – placed over the surface of teeth, bonding prevents bacteria from entering the pulp chamber while restoring appearance to chipped teeth
- Dental crowns – placed over the entire tooth, a dental crown restores strength and beauty that can last for several years
Other options for chips include porcelain veneers and, in some cases, inlays or onlays. The best way to learn which of these options is right for your smile is through a one-on-one consultation at our comfortable office in The Woodlands, Texas.
