A chipped tooth can be a painful and uncomfortable experience for anyone. Fortunately, Signature Dental offers a range of treatments to address this issue and restore the appearance and function of your teeth. Depending on the severity of the chip, our skilled dental professionals may recommend a variety of solutions, including dental bonding, veneers, or crowns.
Reasons of Toothache:
- Biting on hard objects: This can include things like ice, hard candies, or popcorn kernels, which can chip or break the tooth.
- Trauma to the face: This can happen due to a fall or a blow to the face, causing the tooth to chip or fracture.
- Tooth decay: A decayed tooth can weaken the enamel, making it more susceptible to chipping or breaking.
- Weakened tooth due to previous dental treatment: Teeth that have been filled or had root canal treatment can become weaker and more prone to chipping or breaking.
- Genetics: Some people may have weaker tooth enamel due to genetic factors.
- Age-related wear and tear: Over time, teeth can become worn down, making them more susceptible to chipping or breaking.
