Having a chipped tooth can be a serious cause for concern. In addition to the negative impact on your appearance, a chipped tooth invites bacteria to develop cavities that could have serious complications.
If the chip is large or limited to one tooth, your dentist, Dr. Kevin Caldwell, might recommend having the entire enamel layer effectively replaced with a crown.
If you have small chips on multiple teeth, our experienced dental team might recommend porcelain dental veneers to address the chips and give you a white and winning smile.
If one or more teeth is deeply chipped and causing you pain, it likely means that the chip has damaged the internal structures of the tooth and you might suffer significant complications if the problem isn’t addressed directly. In a case like this, your dentist, Dr. Kevin Caldwell, might need to perform a root canal to remove the damaged internal structures of the tooth before fitting it with a crown.
If you have chips on one or more teeth and you would like to explore your restoration options in Webb City, Missouri, you should call Dr. Kevin Caldwell at 417.673.1988 to set up an appointment.
