Chipped or Broken Teeth

Although they may seem minor, chipped or broken teeth can cause discomfort, infections, and even affect how you bite. Therefore, you need timely treatment to mitigate pain, preserve your natural teeth, and reduce the risk of complications.

Peerzada Smiles offers different treatments, from dental bonding for small chips to root canals to save your teeth.

What Causes Teeth to Chip or Break?


Accidents, falls, sports injuries, or even biting into something hard can result in severe trauma. The force exerted on the tooth can result in chipping or breaking.

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay weakens the enamel, making teeth more susceptible to damage. Over time, untreated cavities can cause teeth to chip or break.

Teeth Grinding

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can exert immense pressure on your teeth, wear them down, and lead to chipped or broken teeth.

Is a Chipped Tooth a Dental Emergency?

Whether a chipped tooth constitutes a dental emergency depends on its severity. Minor chips with no pain may not require immediate attention.

However, if you experience severe pain, bleeding, or if a significant portion of the tooth is missing, consider it an emergency and seek dental care.

What Should I Do if I Chip or Break a Tooth?

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area.
  • If possible, save any broken tooth fragments.
  • Immediately get in touch with Peerzada Smiles to schedule an appointment for a professional assessment and appropriate treatment.

Our Treatment Options for Chipped or Broken Teeth

Dental Bonding

When we need to fix minor chips, we apply a tooth-colored resin to the damaged area and bond it to the tooth, restoring its appearance and function.


Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of a chipped tooth. They provide an aesthetic solution and can also strengthen the tooth.

Dental Crowns

For more extensive damage, a dental crown may be necessary. Crowns are caps that cover the entire tooth, protecting it from further damage.

Root Canal

If the inner pulp of a tooth is damaged due to a chip or break, you may need a root canal to remove the damaged tissue and save the tooth.


In cases of severe damage, where saving the tooth is not possible, our dentist will perform an extraction. We also offer various tooth replacement options, such as dental implants or bridges, to restore your smile's functionality.
