Repairing A Chipped Tooth: What You Need To Know

Have you had an accident which has left you with a chipped tooth? A sports injury? Biting into a hard mouthful of food? When it comes to our smile, even small imperfections like a chip can feel momentous. Quickly affecting our confidence. For that reason, finding a quick and comprehensive solution for your chipped tooth can be incredibly important.

With that in mind, there are a couple of options that you can explore when it comes to treating your chipped tooth.

Composite Bonding

When it comes to a smaller chip, comprehensive solutions like a crown or veneer may be somewhat of a case of a small problem, big solution. In which case, you may want to explore a dental solution that is more measured to the actual problem. For many, this solution may come in the form of composite bonding.

A treatment which can be conducted in just one visit, composite bonding can help to achieve small changes without having to cover the entire tooth. The composite resin used to make the changes can be coloured to match the rest of your natural tooth exactly. During the procedure, this is used to fill or make up the chip, which then hardens and is sanded down to match the rest of the teeth. This is then polished to match the natural shine of your other teeth.

Composite bonding in Warrington can also be used in several different ways other than to fix chips. In some cases, this technique can be used to extend, change the shape and even close gaps between teeth. It is an extremely versatile dental solution and can be used to help fill in chips or gaps that may be affecting your smile.

Veneers

If the chip is more extensive, then you may wish to consider dental veneers in Warrington as a more comprehensive way to cover the chipped tooth.

When choosing veneers, there are a couple of options which you can explore. The procedure can be carried out with either porcelain or composite veneers. Both can be colour-matched to fit your smile, but they tend to have different levels of durability over time. This can often be the defining factor, as composite veneers last around 4 to 8 years and porcelain around 10 to 15. So, the long-term durability of the procedure should be considered before choosing between the two.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
