Chipped / Worn Teeth

Chipped or worn teeth are a common dental problem which can have a range of causes. In order to prevent chipped or worn teeth from occurring, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing at least twice a day, and avoiding the overconsumption of substances that can damage the teeth. This should include limiting the intake of sugary food and drink, and avoiding other substances such as excessive coffee, alcohol and tobacco.

 When playing contact sports such as rugby, you should also wear a protective mouthguard to help soften any impact to the teeth and weaken their structure.

About this Condition

It’s important to try and fix chipped or worn teeth right away to avoid further damage. Chipped and worn teeth are more sensitive and at risk of infection or decay, even if you are not experiencing pain. Too much damage to the structure of the tooth can even leave you at risk of losing it entirely. However, don’t worry! Book an urgent appointment with our highly qualified team. We can assess the problem and find the perfect solution to bring your smile back as quickly as possible. If you are in any pain before your appointment, over-the-counter medication and the application of an ice pack can provide quick and safe relief.

Attending regular dental checkups will address any underlying problems as they arise, recommending the most suitable intervention if necessary, such as booking periodontal treatment if you notice the signs of gum disease and being fitted for a mouthguard if you suffer from teeth grinding. Common causes of chipped or worn teeth includes:

  •     physical trauma
  •     tooth decay
  •     teeth grinding
  •     poor fillings

Depending on the damage to your teeth and your personal preference, we may recommend a range of treatments such as:

  •     Veneers
  •     Composite bonding
  •     Dental implants
  •     Crowns
  •     Bridges

These will prevent any further risk to your teeth, improve your confidence and make your teeth stronger.
