Your teeth are remarkably strong. In fact, they are made of the most durable substance in your entire body. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean they are exempt from damage. Whether due to an accidental fall or biting down on something too hard, teeth can crack, chip or break under certain pressures. Regardless of whether the tooth damage is visible or painful, a chipped tooth always needs repair. Untreated fractures in your teeth can lead to serious dental health risks that are difficult to reverse.
When a tooth becomes chipped or damaged, the outer protective layer of the tooth is jeopardized. This can leave the tooth vulnerable to decay and infection. Therefore, even if your chipped tooth is not threatening your smile aesthetics or irritating your lips or tongue, it still needs to be properly repaired. Fortunately, chipped tooth repair is often simple, with the ability to provide long-term restoration for the affected tooth.
