Chipped Tooth Marietta, GA
Woman suffering from dental pain.

Imagine that you’re crunching on something hard when you discover that a piece of your tooth has broken off. Interestingly, you might not feel any pain. In effect, when a part of a tooth breaks or chips away, it doesn’t always necessitate an emergency trip to the dentist. Even so, if you have a chipped tooth, it’s very important to let your dentist know quickly. This is because a tooth is weakened when it is damaged, and even the smallest chip in a tooth can impact one’s oral health.

To begin, it’s important to understand that while a tooth’s enamel is incredibly strong, it can break down. Essentially, when a tooth is chipped, the protective enamel is compromised, and this exposes a portion of a tooth’s dentin. Because the composition of dentin is soft and permeable, it absorbs substances around it. This means that if exposed to bacteria, dentin absorbs it. Without question, this accelerates the process of tooth decay in a tooth that is broken or chipped.

When dentists assess teeth that have been chipped, they classify damage by the type of crack or break. For instance, a shallow, tiny crack in a tooth is considered a crazed line. A break in a tooth’s chewing surface is referred to as a fractured cusp, while a cracked tooth describes a crack extending from the chewing surface to the tooth’s root. In turn, a split tooth is the result of a long-term cracked tooth that has divided into sections. Finally, a vertical root fracture is a crack extending from the root of a tooth to its chewing surface. Because some cracks and chips are not easily visible, a dental examination is vital following damage to one’s tooth.

Fortunately, advancements in restorative dentistry have provided multiple options for repairing chipped teeth. From dental bonding to dental veneers, crowns, root canal therapy and dental implants, the manner in which teeth are repaired depends on the extent of damage.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
