Chipped Tooth


A chipped tooth is the most common type of dental injury. Whether from wear and tear or resulting from trauma to the face, it only takes one small accident to be left with a dental injury that requires professional help.

Chipped teeth can be extremely painful and irritating, and more serious chips could cause dental health issues if left untreated. If you need chipped tooth repair in Riverton, read on to learn more about chipped teeth and what kind of treatment may be best for you.

What is a Chipped Tooth?


The enamel that coats your teeth is tough — in fact, it is one of the strongest tissues in your body due to its high percentage of minerals — but it can still be damaged. Any type of trauma to the face or an ill-placed bite can cause a break serious enough to require chipped tooth repair.

A chipped tooth is usually easy to diagnose, though in minor cases you might not notice the damage right away. There will likely be a small piece of the tooth missing, and you may run your tongue across a tooth to find it jagged and sharp. More severe chips are often accompanied by gum irritation around the tooth or pain when biting if the chip is near to or is exposing the nerves of the tooth.

Common Ways to Chip a Tooth

There are many ways that teeth can break. Chipping can occur from something as simple as biting down on a piece of ice or from a more serious form of trauma such as a face-first fall or a blow to the jaw. You can even get a chip by using your teeth to tear open a package, or by grinding your teeth in your sleep.

The easiest way to prevent a chipped tooth is to avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food, keep from biting directly down on hard foods, and wear protective face gear such as a mouthguard when playing contact sports.

The Risks of a Chipped Tooth

After a broken or chipped tooth, the risk factor of further damage to the tooth increases significantly. Chipped tooth repair will help to strengthen the break, but the tooth will remain prone to breaking if not handled with care. This is especially true if you experience a cavity or another form of tooth decay after the damage, or if your tooth enamel is compromised.

Enamel can weaken due to age, consumption of high amounts of sugar and acidic foods and frequent exposure to stomach acids through heartburn, acid reflux and vomiting. Any weakened tooth increases the risk of a chipped tooth.

I’m so glad I came here for my root canal. The whole staff was so friendly and welcoming - and worked well with me and my insurance who decided not to cover to root canal. They helped me with a payment plan that was simple and easy. Dr Casper is the most gentle dentist I’ve ever been to. It was my first root canal ...

My review will be a little different from all the others posted here because I am a retired dentist. I practiced for 43 years in California as a general dentist before retiring to Utah. I have done many root canal treatments and I have seen many patients who have had root canals done elsewhere. I self-referred myself ...

I don't think anyone ever looks forward to root canals. But I received my second root canal last year from Dr Casper and it was amazing how much the burdens, pains and annoyances I'd experienced in my first one were reduced. Dr Casper is amazingly good at minimizing pain and discomfort. It was a root canal, but it was ...

Dr Casper was amazing! I had to get a root canal, and I am someone extremely anxious about dental work. The procedure was pain free and Dr Casper was very kind and polite. Even though getting a root canal sucks, Dr Casper made it the best experience it could be.
— Mike Vermillion, Posted August 5th 2020 on google
Dr. Casper was amazing. Extremely kind and concerned, thorough and caring. He found the source of my bottom jaw pain even though the tooth causing trouble was on the top! He personally followed up with me several times after I had a rough time during a root canal. The front desk ladies were perfectly kind and compete...

First time in over 15yrs I havent had to ask for more anesthetic in the middle of the dental procedure. Staff are very friendly and professional, and even though i arrived late they still saw me and completed the appointment same day. I would recommend this copper creek endodontrics to anyone who asks.

— Yumi Pena, Posted November 5th 2019 on google
The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Dr. Rhett Casper explained everything he had to do before he started my root canal and he talked to me about what he was doing as he was doing it. I expected to be sore for a few days, but the very next day I had next to no pain or even discomfort. I think that speaks volumes ...
— Dakota Shay, Posted August 22nd 2019 on google

Chipped Tooth Repair


Whether or not you should seek immediate chipped tooth repair depends on the severity of the injury. Some breaks are minor and cause no lasting damage, but cracks that cause irritation or intense pain should be treated as soon as possible to save the tooth and prevent further damage. Minor chips can also be repaired for cosmetic reasons or to smooth an annoying jagged edge.

Most chipped teeth can be repaired with a simple filling and cap. However, a more extreme fracture may extend to the roots, exposing the pulp of the tooth and requiring a more intense procedure. Some of the most common treatment options for a chipped tooth include:

Bonding is the easiest repair method for smaller chips and breaks. This process involves using a tooth-colored resin or porcelain material to mold and cement over the damaged area. The material is hardened with ultraviolet lights that are used to harden and dry the material. After drying, the tooth will look as good as new. Bonding can last for up to 10 years if properly cared for.

Veneers are the next step above bonding, more suited for chipped teeth with more severe and/or previous damage (they can even be attached to a bonded tooth). Rather than a spot-treatment method like bonding, a veneer is a thin porcelain cover that is attached to the front part of the tooth. They are designed to seamlessly match your teeth, and they’ll provide protection and strength to a chipped tooth. They can last for approximately 10 to 20 years.

Like veneers, dental onlays and inlays cover a portion of the tooth with a thin cover to protect and strengthen a chip. Where veneers adhere to the front of the tooth, onlays cover the damaged tooth’s sides, cusps and chewing surface — and inlays only target the chewing surface. They are sometimes referred to as a “partial crown.” They can last for the same amount of time as veneers, around 10 to 20 years.

Crowns and caps are the more extreme version of veneers. Instead of attaching to a specific section of the damaged tooth’s surface, a crown will cover the entirety of the tooth. This is the preferred method for teeth with significant chips or breaks to prevent further damage and lessen pain. The average lifespan of a crown or cap can span 15 to 20 years if cared for properly.

Dental fillings are another common way to fill chips and cracks on damaged teeth. A filling material, often made from porcelain or composite resin, is injected into the affected area of the tooth and allowed to dry. If the patient can comfortably bite down after the material has been set, the filling successfully restores the stability of the weakened area on the tooth. Fillings often last up to 15 years with good dental hygiene.

In cases where the fracture extends to the roots and infection takes hold, a root canal treatment is usually required to save and restore function to the tooth. A root canal treatment removes the inflamed or infected pulp and the inside of the tooth, restoring and saving the natural tooth and preventing further decay. After the procedure, a crown or filling will be applied to the tooth to repair the chip itself.

The long-term health of a chipped tooth depends on the nature of the injury, the length of time from injury to treatment, and how your tooth was cared for following the injury. Seek treatment from a Utah endodontic specialist immediately following a dental injury to increase the likelihood of saving the tooth and preventing infection.
