Do you have one or more damaged teeth?
Chips and cracks in the teeth are not just cosmetic issues. In fact, depending on the location and type of damage, they may not be visible at all. But chipped or cracked teeth can lead to further damage over time and pose a risk to your overall oral health. They can also cause pain, especially when exposed to cold or hot temperatures.
If you’re dealing with visible damage, pain, or other dental issues related to cracks and chips, our skilled and compassionate team is here to help. We’ll examine your smile to determine the source and extent of the damage and work with you to develop the right treatment plan for your specific situation. Book online now or call us at (303) 220-7662 to get started.
What causes chipped or cracked teeth?
Chipped or cracked teeth can occur due to a variety of factors, including:
- Cavities – Cavities are tiny holes that appear on the surface of the teeth and leave the affected areas vulnerable to further damage.
- Trauma – Whether you’ve sustained a fall, a sports injury, or simply bitten down on a hard object, physical force is one of the most common causes of damaged teeth.
- Bruxism (teeth grinding) – Grinding your teeth can wear down your enamel over time, changing the shape of your teeth and increasing your chance of developing cracks and chips.
- Poor dental hygiene – If you aren’t practicing oral care such as brushing, flossing, and getting regular professional cleanings, then your teeth will be far more vulnerable to damage.
- Aging – Due to the daily wear and tear of chewing, a weakened enamel is part of the natural aging process.
No matter the cause of your chipped or cracked teeth, we can help you find the right treatment and restore the look and health of your smile.
Treatments for chipped or cracked teeth
If you have minor or shallow cracking, we may be able to use composite bonding material to repair the damaged tooth. Bonding is non-invasive and pain-free. Learn More.
Fillings are a very common and safe method of fixing cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. This may be the best course of action if your damaged tooth has a cavity. Learn more.
Crowns can be used to cover visible cracks and chips as well as protect the tooth from further damage. They can be made out of ceramic, porcelain, or metal material, and can help restore the structure of a compromised tooth. Learn more.
Like crowns, dental veneers can be placed over damaged teeth to improve the appearance of your smile and protect the tooth’s natural surface from further damage. Because they look and feel just like natural teeth, veneers are a popular treatment for a wide variety of cosmetic concerns. Learn more.
Dental implants involve removing the compromised tooth and creating an implant to take its place. This may be the best option if your tooth is cracked or chipped close to the gumline or if it’s sustained structural damage. Learn more.
If a tooth is cracked or damaged down to the root, it may become infected. If you’re dealing with an infection, we may recommend a root canal, which involves removing the infection and then placing a crown over the tooth to protect it. Learn more.
How can I prevent chipped or cracked teeth?
- Use a mouthguard when playing sports or participating in physical activities.
- If you suffer from bruxism, talk to your dentist about how to reduce teeth grinding.
- Eat a healthy diet and avoid acidic or sugary foods and drinks to keep your enamel strong and healthy.
- Avoid excessively chewing on hard foods and objects such as ice, hard candies, pencils, etc.
- Brush, floss, and use a gentle mouthwash daily.
- Get dental exams and cleanings every six months.
