Chipped Tooth? Don’t Fret Marietta, GA

Chipped Tooth? Don’t Fret

Our teeth are considered to be the hardest part of the human body, even stronger than bones. However, they are still not invincible. Accidents do happen, and when you experience a chipped tooth, it can create panic. Teeth certainly do not have regenerative powers to grow back or heal themselves, but there are still many effective solutions your dentist can offer or a broken or chipped tooth. Options in cosmetic dentistry can restore your natural tooth and create a flawless smile after a tooth trauma.

Chipped teeth are reported as the most common dental injury. A chipped tooth can occur from a variety of causes, from an injury or fall to a tongue piercing or even hard foods can chip the edge of your tooth. Your first action step for a chipped tooth is calling your dentist. Many dentists, such as Gilreath Family Dentistry, offer emergency dental care and can give you a same day appointment to restore your smile. You chipped tooth may or may not cause pain depending on the size of the chip and if it affected your tooth nerves or blood vessels.

The procedure your dentist chooses to fix a chipped tooth depends on the type and severity of trauma that caused the fracture. Your dental appointment may be as simple as filing rough edges from a tiny chip. Your dentist may also suggest dental bonding to correct your chipped tooth, which involves tooth-colored composite resin to fill in areas that were chipped or re-attach broken tooth pieces. If you have lost a larger portion of your tooth or if your trauma occurs on an incisor tooth, then porcelain veneers can be a great way to cosmetically restore your smile to new. With veneers, you should expect a multi-visit process to ensure your veneers have the most custom fit and closely matched color. Dental crowns are yet another option for chipped teeth. This effectively covers a damaged tooth that is severe.

Whatever your dental restoration may entail, you can rest at ease that there is in fact an effective dental remedy available for that unpredicted chipped tooth event. Gilreath Family Dentistry carefully explains all treatment options with each patient to make sure your chipped tooth is fixed in the best manner possible and your smile is restored with natural, healthy results.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
