Chipped tooth repair in Birmingham

A chipped tooth can happen to anyone. This could be from an accidental fall, biting into something hard, or simply the wear and tear of everyday life. Not only can a chipped tooth affect your smile, but it also leads to discomfort and can affect your confidence.

At Stella Maris Dental in Birmingham, we understand the urgency and the distress that comes with chipped and cracked teeth. This is why we’re dedicated to providing swift, effective chipped tooth repair tailored to your needs. This blog will guide you through our approach to repairing chipped teeth, what you can expect during the process, and how we ensure your smile is restored to its natural beauty.

What causes a chipped tooth?

Chipped teeth can result from various factors, and understanding these causes is the first step toward prevention and treatment. Here are some common culprits:

  • Accidents and trauma: Life is unpredictable, and accidental falls or sports-related injuries can lead to chipped or broken teeth. These incidents are among the top reasons individuals seek emergency dental care.
  • Hard foods: Our teeth are strong, but not indestructible. Biting down on hard foods like sweets, ice, or even apple seeds can result in chips, especially if the tooth already has some degree of decay or weakness.
  • Wear and tear: Everyday chewing doesn’t spare even the healthiest teeth. Over the years, habits like clenching, grinding, or chewing hard objects can contribute to wear and tear, leading to chips or cracks.
  • Poor dental hygiene: Regular brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining strong teeth. Neglecting dental hygiene can lead to decay and weakened enamel, making teeth more susceptible to chipping.

Understanding these causes helps us at Stella Maris Dental tailor our preventative advice and treatments to each patient’s lifestyle, and ensures your teeth remain strong and healthy.

Our process for chipped tooth repair

Depending on the cause and the severity of your chip, there are different treatments that could be used to help regain your full smile.

Initial consultation: We strive to schedule your appointment as promptly as possible, understanding the urgency of dental discomfort and aesthetic concerns. During your initial visit, we’ll discuss your medical history, any immediate pain or discomfort, and your expectations for treatment.

Examination: Our dentists conduct a thorough examination, using state-of-the-art technology to assess the extent of the chip and any associated dental issues. This comprehensive approach ensures that we choose the most effective treatment plan for your specific needs.

Treatment options

Depending on the size and location of the chip, we offer several treatment options:

  • Cosmetic bonding: For minor chips, dental bonding is a quick and effective solution. We apply a durable, tooth-coloured composite resin to the chipped area, which is then shaped and polished to match the rest of your tooth, restoring its appearance and function. This procedure typically takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth and can be completed in a single visit.
  • Veneers: Porcelain veneers are a fantastic option for front teeth, providing a more permanent solution. These custom-made shells cover the front surface of the tooth, offering a flawless appearance. Getting veneers usually requires two visits. During the first visit, we prepare the tooth and take an impression, which is sent to a dental lab where your custom veneer is created. On your second visit, the veneer is fitted and bonded to your tooth, instantly transforming your smile.
  • Dental crowns: For larger chips, a crown may be necessary. This treatment involves covering the entire tooth with a custom-made crown, restoring both its appearance and strength. Similar to veneers, crowns require two visits. At your first visit, we’ll fit a temporary crown to cover your tooth while your permanent crown is made in a dental laboratory. On your second visit, we’ll remove the temporary crown and fit your permanent one.

“I have just completed a 19 week course of Invisalign for straightening of upper and lower teeth. Plus whitening and composite bonding to three teeth that were chipped. I feel that Hema gave fabulous service, she demonstrated professionalism, integrity and perfectionism throughout my treatment. I have been delighted with the results and have recommended it to family and friends who are interested in having their teeth improved.” – Kim F

At Stella Maris Dental, we use only the highest quality materials for chipped tooth repair, ensuring that your treatment is not only effective but also looking great.

Our attention to detail ensures that the repaired tooth blends seamlessly with your smile, maintaining its natural look and feel.

Is it a dental emergency?

While not all chipped teeth constitute a dental emergency, prompt treatment is crucial to prevent further damage or infection. If you’re experiencing pain, significant discomfort, or sharp edges that could injure your mouth, it’s important to seek immediate dental care.

At Stella Maris Dental, we prioritise emergency cases, offering advice over the phone and arranging for you to see a dentist as quickly as possible.

Afterwards, taking good care of it is essential. We recommend:

  • Practising good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing daily.
  • Avoiding hard foods or ice that could damage the repair.
  • Wearing a mouthguard if you play sports or have a habit of grinding your teeth.
  • Regular dental check-ups to monitor the repair and maintain overall dental health.
