A chipped tooth can ruin an otherwise perfect smile. More importantly, a chipped tooth is a damaged tooth. Without proper and timely treatment, it could lead to bigger problems such as tooth decay, infection and possible loss. This can be prevented with a trip to your dentist.

The extent of the damage to the tooth determines which treatment will be best in restoring it. There are several options available to restore your tooth back to its normal appearance.

Restoring the Chipped Tooth

The tooth must be examined thoroughly to determine whether or not the damage extends to the tooth nerve center. This is important, because exposure of the nerve or pulp may require root canal therapy in order to save the tooth from extraction. If the pulp of the tooth has been exposed, germs can get into the area and cause an infection. This exposure can also cause a great amount of discomfort or pain, if not treated promptly.

Chips that do not involve the nerve of the tooth can often be remedied with dental bonding. In this case, a bonding material is used to bond the missing part of the tooth back on. If the missing part is not available, a composite resin can be used to fill in the missing part. This becomes bonded to the tooth structure. After it is trimmed and polished, it looks and feels like the natural tooth.

Occasionally, a chip may be extensive enough to require that the tooth be covered with a dental crown. The remaining tooth structure is prepared to receive a crown. They are usually porcelain fused to metal or a resin crown. Metal crowns are also used. They can be stainless steel or a gold alloy. After the tooth is prepped and the crown is ready, the crown, or cap as it is sometimes called, is cemented onto the tooth.

It can be tempting to ignore a chipped tooth when only a small portion of the tooth is affected. However, little chips can cause big problems later. If you have a chipped tooth, make an appointment with Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, and let us restore your tooth to prevent decay and infection.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
