Veneers can be used for a variety of cosmetic reasons including giving you a straighter, whiter, healthier looking smile. And although veneers can withstand a lot, they can still chip sometimes; especially if you’re really hard on them. So, what should you do if you chip your veneer? Let’s take a closer look at a few tips.
Call Our Office
The first thing you should do when you chip your veneer is to call our office to schedule an appointment. The sooner we can get you in and get it fixed, the better off you will be. And because a chipped veneer is a pretty urgent situation, we will do our best to get you in as soon as possible.
See If The Veneer Is Still Intact
Next, look at your veneer and see if it is in fact just a small chip or if it looks like the whole veneer will need to be replaced. Oftentimes, if there is just a tiny chip at the bottom, Dr. Steven Holbrook will be able to add onto it to repair it. If, however, the rack is too severe to be repaired, then he may have to replace the entire thing.
If you can, try to save the small piece that chipped off from your tooth; this will help Dr. Steven Holbrook with the repair and to take a closer look to see exactly how you got the chip in the first place to help prevent it from happening again later on down the line.
Having a chipped veneer can really make you have a chip on your shoulder but Dr. Holbrook can either repair or replace it in no time.
