I’ve chipped my tooth, what should I do?
Firstly, don’t panic, these things happen. If the chip is small, you should make a regular appointment with our clinic. We’ll be able to repair the damage, matching in the colour and shape as if the chip never happened.
I’ve broken a large part off my tooth
Every injury is different, and your treatment will be tailored to your exact situation. If the part of the tooth may be repairable with filling materials, or if you’ve badly damaged the tooth, you may need a crown of a root canal. If you’re worried in any way, please call the surgery and we’ll see you immediately.
