What to do with chipped front teeth?

Dr Vo Van Nhan said: Depending on the condition of the chipped tooth, whether there is damage to the tooth or not, there is an appropriate treatment method.

If the case is small, there is no damage to the tooth, it is only necessary to fill it with cosmetic materials such as composite. However, the durability of the filling is not high, especially the filling in the incisor position. Therefore, if you apply this method, you will have to reapply many times after 2-3 years of use.

If the tooth has a large chipped, trauma to the tooth pulp, it should be treated well, then restored with cosmetic porcelain teeth. For the incisors area, you can choose all-ceramic crowns. Because the characteristics of all-ceramic restorations are good biocompatibility with gum tissue, less cause gingivitis, no blackening of the gum line over time, clear color, natural shine like real teeth.
