There are many different types of dental injuries. A chipped tooth is a very common injury that most often affects the front, visible teeth. This tooth damage can be a cause for embarrassment and panic because people are concerned with the appearance of their smile. At 21st Century Dentistry, we offer chipped tooth repair as a part of our family dentistry treatments. Our practice provides quick, effective and painless chipped tooth repair for patients in Nashville, TN and the surrounding communities.
It is vital that you visit the dentist as soon as possible if you have a chipped tooth. The teeth are living features inside the mouth. Damage to the tooth enamel can leave the inner dentin and roots exposed to bacteria, causing infection and death to the tooth. The teeth are quite resilient when they receive prompt treatment. If you are able to find the portion of your tooth that has been chipped off, please bring it with you when you come to our practice! Keep this small amount of tooth in a cup with a small amount of milk or your own saliva to keep it moist. Our dental practice will do everything we can to give you the immediate treatment you need for your chipped tooth repair.
