Columbia, IL Chipped Tooth Repair

A chipped tooth can pose threats to your overall comfort and confidence. Depending on how large the tooth fracture is and where it is located in your mouth, you may experience irritations on your tongue or cheek. You may also have sensitivity or pain when eating. A visibly chipped tooth can also cause you to hide your smile. Columbia Dental Center is where families in Columbia turn for quick and affordable chipped tooth repair.

While you may be anxious to regain a smile that looks better, it is also important to treat tooth damage before it compromises your dental health. Left alone, a chip or crack in a tooth can create an open invitation for bacteria and acid to enter the inner portion of the tooth. This can lead to infection, decay and other unwanted problems.
