Our frequently asked questions guide you through quick fixes and lasting solutions for a chipped tooth, ensuring your smile remains flawless.

What should I do immediately after chipping my tooth?

First, avoid hot and cold foods to prevent discomfort. Rinse your mouth with warm water, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling, and try to save any tooth fragments. Then, contact our clinic for an emergency appointment.

Can I eat before I get to the dentist?

Yes, but choose soft foods and chew away from the chipped tooth. Avoid temperature extremes in your food and drink.

What are some long-term treatment options for a chipped tooth?

Depending on the severity of the damage, our dentist may suggest bonding, onlays, or crowns. These options aim to restore your tooth’s appearance and functionality while preserving as much of your natural tooth as possible.

How soon should I see a dentist?

Seek immediate care for severe toothache, visible damage, or any sudden discomfort. Early treatment can prevent further damage and alleviate pain more effectively.
