The American Association of Endodontists notes that chipped tooth enamel is one of the most common forms of dental trauma. While this can be caused by sports accidents, people who grind their teeth at night are also at increased risk of suffering a chipped tooth.
Should this befall you, it’s wise to have the chipped tooth repaired as soon as possible at Dr. Amandeep S Gill’s dental office in Modesto, California. Without professional treatment, the compromised area of tooth enamel could start to passively trap food particles and bacterial matter. This could cause a severe cavity to form in the previously healthy tooth.
If the chip is small and the damage is limited to the tooth enamel layer Dr. Amandeep S Gill might be able to repair it with a basic composite resin dental filling. This is a special type of dental material that can be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding tooth enamel.
If the fractured tooth compromises a large area of tooth enamel, or the biting surface of the tooth has been traumatized Dr. Amandeep S Gill might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown. This will fully replace the tooth’s enamel layer with a special dental grade porcelain. This material can be shaded to perfectly match the neighboring teeth.
If you live in the Modesto, California, area, and you have a chipped tooth in your smile, you should call (209) 549-1721 to seek timely treatment at Gill Family Dentistry.

We have seen that a smile makeover isn’t just about your smile, it’s also about your health and well-being. As you are once again able to smile with confidence, your self-esteem improves. This happens because of a very real phenomenon as the brain releases neuropeptides when you smile. These neuropeptides enable communication within the neurons, and this allows messages to be sent throughout your body. This reduces stress levels by releasing the feel-good hormones in the body, you know them as dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin. The result is lowered blood pressure and heart rate, all thanks to the simple act of smiling and feeling good about yourself.
