Unless you have ever actually followed through on learning more about the tooth chip (or tooth chips) you’ve incurred, then you probably don’t have a lot of definitive, factual information about them. Are they dangerous for your smile, for instance? Are they treatable? Will they go away over time? We remind you that though these are little in size, our Riverside, CA team is aware that they are significant in their impact on how you feel and look! So, let our Riverside dentist share some important facts with you that should help get those questions answered right up!

#1: They’re Not Going Away On Their Own

Your Riverside dentist wants you to remember that your tooth chips aren’t going to go away on their own! If you’re hoping to see them wear down, disappear, or regenerate over time, keep in mind that once the tissue is gone, it will not come back. If you’re interested in not dealing with them anymore, come see us!

#2: They’re Not Harming Your Oral Health

While those tooth chips aren’t going anywhere unless you treat them, your Riverside dentist also wants you to keep in mind that they’re not causing any problems for your oral health. You may not like how they look but they are not considered a threat to your smile’s wellbeing!

#3: They Can Become Bothersome

Then again, chips can become bothersome on an esthetic level, meaning you really don’t love what they look like. Or, they have the potential to annoy you if they occasionally scrape your tongue, lip, etc.

#4: We Can Treat Them!

If you decide that you would, indeed, like those tooth chips to go bye-bye, your Riverside dentist can treat them very easily with a cosmetic treatment called dental bonding! Come in soon to learn more and to make chips a thing of the past.
