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.

At Columbia Dental Center, we specialize in your smile. Our dentists, Dr. Rick Leppo and Dr. Lori Trost, are able to treat patients of all ages with a full range of dental services. When it comes to chipped tooth repair, we know that time is of the essence. 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.

When choosing our Columbia practice to handle your chipped tooth, you can expect an excellent experience from start to finish. We pride ourselves on the following:

  • Comfort Dentistry – Beyond our modern amenities, our dentists are qualified to offer a full menu of options in sedation dentistry, including IV sedation. We can help your anxious child or special needs family member feel at ease during chipped tooth repair.
  • Efficient Dentistry – We use advanced dental technology to expedite your procedures. If a dental crown is needed to repair your damaged tooth, we can do it in a single visit using our CEREC machine.
  • Affordable Dentistry – We know your chipped tooth wasn’t a planned or predicted expense. That’s okay. We offer flexible payment options, including financing plans for patients who do not have dental insurance.
