Broken, Cracked, or Chipped Tooth in Yukon or OKC?
Don’t Delay. See a Dentist Today!
Even if you’re not in pain, a chipped tooth can be the start of a bigger problem.
Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth are common. You might feel a rough or sharp edge on a tooth after:
- Biting down on a popcorn kernel or other hard piece of food
- Falling off your bicycle or getting in a car accident
- Being injured while playing sports
Left untreated even tiny cracks and chips can lead to tooth decay and bad toothaches. Fortunately, a chipped tooth repair is often minimally invasive and quick. If you have questions about cracked tooth repair, come see us at First Impressions Dentistry. We have convenient offices in OKC and Yukon and even offer emergency same-day appointments.

Not sure how you chipped your tooth?
Not every chipped tooth is caused by biting down on food or as the result of an accident. It’s not uncommon to just notice a tooth that feels different than it used to. You might notice a tooth that feels rough or sharp around the edges. Sometimes you might see small vertical lines on your teeth when you look in the mirror.
These issues often develop over time and may be the result of tooth grinding, a condition also known as bruxism. Tooth grinding is commonly associated with stress. However, most people who grind their teeth do so at night and aren’t even aware they’re doing it! Worn teeth are the most common outcome and over time chips and cracks can develop. If you grind your teeth at night, you might experience symptoms like:
- Headaches or sore jaw
- Poor sleep quality
- Bad taste in your mouth
If you’re worried about tooth grinding, breathing exercises and other stress-reducing techniques can help. But you might also benefit from a custom mouthguard to wear while you sleep.
How to fix a chipped tooth?
Depending on the size of the chip or crack, there are likely several options for your chipped tooth repair. It’s important to seek treatment because a chip or crack can allow bacteria to enter the tooth and cause decay and a painful toothache.
At First Impressions Dentistry, we may recommend a treatment like:
When a chip or crack leads to decay, a composite filling might be called for. A white filling is stronger and looks better than a silver filling.
Porcelain veneers are a durable and versatile option for fixing chipped teeth and improving their appearance, too!
Looking to fix a cracked molar? Bonding treatments strengthen your teeth and offer protection against cracked tooth pain down the road.
