Ways to Correct a Tooth with a Chip Missing
These are the many ways a tooth can be fixed when you seem to have chipped or cracked a portion of it off. These ways can help a person maintain the integrity of the tooth for years to come without having to worry about the tooth breaking more.
Putting a crown over the top of the tooth can help keep the tooth together. It can reduce the chances of having the tooth chip or crack even worse. This is done for those chipped teeth that are badly chipped and need to be kept together.
Putting cement on the tooth and shaping it over the area that is missing can also help to boost the look and feel of the tooth. It can look and feel just like your normal tooth and act in the same way. This is great when you have a small chip in it that just has to be reformed. This is known as filling and bonding the tooth. It is one of the most used methods for sealing cracked teeth.
