How the dentist repairs a chipped tooth

The video above illustrates how to repair a fractured anterior (front) tooth with a dental filling material. Initially, the dentist needs to be able to remove any unsupported enamel & incorporate a bevel which will help camouflage the dental filling material. This incorporates minimal preparation & will allow for a better bonding mechanism.

I have a small chip, i had braces so it really disappoints me that this happened. I can’t afford a dentist now but I hope that maybe in a few months I can get it fixed. And hopefully it’s not expensive

MakoMerlin:

so grateful for modern technology.
moment of silence for all the people who chipped their teeth in history and had to live with that for the rest of their lives

I recently had this surgery done to my front tooth and was told not to bite when eating. Does this last forever, or is it only temporary? I know a lot of people who’ve continued as normal.

I’ve had this done TWO times to the same tooth. At first it was just a small chip on my front tooth. I had it fixed like in the video. Literally like 2 weeks later, the filling broke off while I was eating & it looked like I was missing even more tooth that time. 😫 I freaked & went back to the dentist to have it done again…. that one lasted a few months & broke off again. I still haven’t had it repaired again because now I’m an adult & pay my own insurance 🙃 I’m scared to waste my money to have it done again & it just fall off in a few weeks/months

This gives me so much hope!! I fell down on my face while running the last year and I chipped my front tooth
