ratings and reviews)
A chipped tooth is damage to teeth, which are not moved from their original position. A chipped tooth is usually caused by trauma -- from biting down on something hard to receiving a blow to the face. Tooth decay can also weaken a tooth, eventually causing it to break. Sometimes a chipped tooth will cause a toothache or jaw pain; other times it may lead to tooth sensitivity.

HOW IS CHIPPED TOOTH TREATED?
The treatment for a chipped tooth depends largely on the extent of damage. The possible treatment options include use of dental veneers, dental crown or dental filling. If the damage is deeper down, a root canal treatment may become necessary. In the meanwhile, a pain reliever such as acetaminophen can be used along with a salt water mouth rinse to manage the pain.
