Chipped Tooth? We Can Help

Chipped Tooth? We Can Help

Chipped teeth are not only inconvenient but can lead to other, more challenging dental problems in the future. Cracked dentition affects your confidence when smiling. These and other reasons are good incentives to have your teeth corrected at El Paso Viva Dental with Dr. Steve Yi in El Paso, TX. 

How to prevent damaging your teeth

  • Protect your teeth during sports by wearing a mouthguard.
  • Do not use your teeth as instruments to open or pry things.
  • Stay alert of where you walk or run -- slippery surfaces or objects left on the floor can create a hazard.
  • Be careful to not consume hard or very sticky foods.

Try to preserve your tooth after it's been chipped 

  • If you are bleeding, apply a cold compress to the area to stop the blood flow.
  • Take over-the-counter medication to relieve any pain.
  • Search for the tooth, if you can. Fragmented teeth may be harder to recover than whole ones.
  • Arrange to see the dentist as soon as possible.

Visiting your dentist
Making an appointment with your dentist is going to be one of the most important steps you take in restoring your smile. Upon your arrival, these are just some of the techniques that you can discuss with your dentist to correct your chipped tooth:

  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Implants
  • Bridges

As you can see, we have a number of treatments that can tackle your chipped tooth and get it resolved quickly. While it may be tempting to leave your smile as is, leaving your teeth to remain damaged can result in further damage of the tooth, injury to the interior of the mouth, and difficulty chewing your food properly.

If you are unsure, contact Dr. Yi at El Paso Viva Dental in El Paso, TX at (915) 751-1007 to set up an appointment to fix your chipped tooth.
