You are well aware that chips can happen to anyone, even adults. So, when your child shows up with a chipped tooth, it’s not really that big of a surprise. However, it’s certainly something that puts you on edge and for which you could really use some solutions. Namely, you’d like to know what to do about chips that have already happened. Then, of course, you would love to know what to do to prevent chips in the future. While you cannot keep your eye on your child 24/7, we can certainly provide some options that will be of great help!
To Prevent Chips
Want to help your child prevent the occurrence of chips? Of course, you cannot prevent everything. Your child may chip a tooth at a friend’s house, at recess, or even with you watching. However, one major form of protection is an athletic mouthguard that your son or daughter can wear while participating in sports. Remember that any serious impact with sports equipment, other kids, or even the ground may yield dental damage. Why not prevent a chipped tooth when you can?
To Address Chips
Now, let’s say some damage has already occurred. You’re happy to do what you can to prevent an additional chipped tooth in the future but for now, you want to know if you can fix your child’s tooth. Good news: We offer dental bonding! Just like we offer for adults, this cosmetic treatment relies on color-customized composite. We will carefully sculpt the material to replace the tissue that’s been lost, so your child’s tooth appears good as new.
