What to Do When You Have a Chipped Tooth

Knowing what to do with a chipped tooth can help you avoid painful infections or extra costs related to your dental emergency. If you chip or break a tooth, contact Monarch Dental right away. We have multiple locations, making it possible for you to get an appointment quickly if not on the same day.

Before you arrive, apply a cool compress to the area to reduce swelling. If there is bleeding, use a clean tissue or gauze to apply pressure until it stops. You can also rinse with warm salt water to ease swelling or clean the area around your chipped tooth. If a large part of your tooth has broken off, place it in a cup of milk and bring it with you to your appointment as soon as possible.

When is it a Dental Emergency?

Chipped teeth are one of the most common dental emergencies we treat. A dental emergency can be any situation where you are in pain, unable to eat or go to work. Additionally, you should see one of our emergency dentists if the tooth is badly damaged, even if it doesn’t hurt.

Options for Repairing a Chipped or Damaged Tooth

Unfortunately, chipped teeth do not heal on their own. It’s important to quickly receive treatment to prevent the damage from becoming worse. Depending on how bad the chip is, our experienced dentists may recommend one of the following dental solutions:

Dental Fillings

Some cracks or breaks in teeth are due to cavities just under the surface of your enamel. In these instances, your dentist will clean out the cavity and place a filling to reinforce the area and seal out bacteria.

Dental Bonding

We recommend dental bonding if only the edge of your tooth is chipped. Bonding is similar to white fillings and matches your surrounding enamel. We rebuild the damaged area and cure the composite material to recreate the appearance of a properly shaped tooth.

Dental Crown

Teeth that are structurally compromised and have deep cracks will continue to break down over time. Reinforcing your remaining tooth structure with a dental crown can preserve your tooth and reduce the risk of additional complications.

Dental Veneer

In most situations, we do not use cosmetic dentistry for tooth damage unless the tooth is structurally healthy. Unlike dental crowns, veneers only cover a few parts of the tooth (the front, some of the sides, and biting edge). Veneers are a more conservative treatment option and useful if your tooth does not require full coverage from a dental crown.

Root Canal Treatment

Deep cracks in teeth can cause severe pain, infection, or tooth death due to nerve trauma. If the nerve is involved, endodontic therapy (root canal treatment) is the only way to preserve your tooth and avoid a dental extraction.

Extraction and Replacement

Non-restorable teeth are usually extracted for pain relief and to prevent infection. At Monarch Dental, our specialists offer several tooth replacement options to restore your smile and make it whole again. Options such as dental implants or fixed bridges offer durable, aesthetic results to help you regain your confidence.

What is the Monarch Dental Patient Experience?

Thanks to Monarch Dental’s multiple locations, you can quickly get the care you need wherever you live. When any patient experiences a chipped or broken tooth, we do everything possible to see them quickly or on the same day. Our compassionate dentists won’t just help repair your chipped tooth; they’ll put your mind at ease and address any pain or discomfort you’re experiencing.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Chipped Tooth?

The cost of the treatment depends on several factors. First, our experienced dentists will need to examine your tooth to determine the extent of damage. During your examination, we will take a small X-ray to get a better idea of how badly the tooth is broken. From there, we will discuss the most appropriate repair options. Next, we will create a treatment plan that lists the specific procedures and fees involved.

Small tooth restorations like bonding are affordable and quick to place. However, if your tooth has a severe fracture, bonding may not be durable enough. In those scenarios, it’s typically best to cover and reinforce your tooth with a protective dental crown. If the fracture extends into the nerve of your tooth, root canal therapy is typically required. The only way to know exactly what to expect concerning costs is to have your tooth evaluated by one of our experienced dentists.

Generally, treating tooth fractures tends to be more affordable the earlier you address them. Because broken teeth can continue to chip away, delaying treatment may result in the need for more advanced restorative measures.

Dental Insurance Accepted

Most major dental insurance plans include benefits that help cover the cost of fixing chipped teeth. We accept most PPO and HMO insurance policies, helping reduce your total out-of-pocket cost. During your treatment planning, we will estimate your coverage and explain our affordable pricing options so you aren’t caught off guard. We’ll discuss various types of tooth repair so you can select the best one for your smile and personal budget. Our goal is to be completely transparent concerning your treatment costs.
