"I like it when the dentist communicates what he's doing to sort of inform me of most steps while prepping me for crowns and removal of decay.
I was also impressed with the quality and skills of your dental assistants."
"Always a satisfactory experience."
"It was good but I always feel like I'm being told to buy something that I don't really need...
If I really need it then that is good but I feel Ike the things I am supposed to get are not necessary."
Is there a way to repair a chipped tooth with a porcelain filling or is it time to replace the tooth? I feel it's getting worse as I apply more pressure while eating things like corn nuts. Does this mean the crack is getting worse over time? Thank you doctors in advance! This is a wonderful service you're doing.
Hi, In response to your question, Yes, sometimes a chipped tooth can be repaired with a tooth colored filling. However, depending on the size and location, sometimes a filling and/or bonding is not a good option. The tooth might continue to fracture further. You may want to consider a veneer as an option for a stronger restoration and to protect the remaining tooth structure, especially if you do eat nuts. We hope this information helps and should you be interested in an appointment, please let us know. Have a great day.
