There is no one answer for how to best handle a chipped tooth, since each case is unique. Depending upon the extent of the damage and the placement of the tooth, Dr. Marianna Farber may recommend different courses of action.
For example, a tooth toward the back of the mouth with a minor chip can often be easily repaired with cosmetic bonding for inconspicuous, natural looking results. In addition, bonding is often a very cost effective way of repairing a damaged tooth. However, if one of your front teeth has a large chip, porcelain veneers may better suit your needs. By covering the entire visible surface of the tooth and color-matching the shade, you can have a durable restoration that blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
