Your Six Best Treatment Options for a Chipped Tooth, Marietta

Your Six Best Treatment Options for a Chipped Tooth

Smiling Patient in Dental Chair After Chipped Tooth Repair Marietta GAChipping or cracking a tooth can be terrifying. Fortunately, Marietta chipped tooth repair includes a variety of treatment options for you to choose from.

1. Dental Bonding

The first and most common solution for chipped teeth is some simple dental bonding. This is a procedure where our Marietta restorative dentist patches a small amount of tooth-colored filling material to your tooth to fill in the empty space. There are no drills or anesthesia involved.

2. Composite Dental Fillings

You will likely need a filling if your tooth chipped due to a cavity. Fillings replace the structure lost to decay and tend to last longer than bonding.

3. Dental Veneers

A porcelain veneer is an excellent choice if the chip is in a front tooth. Veneers provide a “false front” for teeth so that you can smile with confidence.

4. Inlays and Onlays

What if the chip in your tooth is too big for a filling and too small for a crown? Get an inlay or onlay. These tooth-colored restorations come in solid pieces just like caps, except they only replace the broken part of your tooth instead of covering all of it.

5. Dental Crowns

For those teeth that are missing large areas, a dental crown is usually the way to go. Crowns enhance the strength and beauty of chipped teeth.

6. Root Canals

A root canal removes the nerve of a tooth to prevent it from becoming infected. You may only need this procedure if the damage was deep enough to compromise the nerve.

I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!
