Does a small chip need to be fixed - Ask a Dentist

Q: I have a small chip on one of my teeth - is that something that needs to be fixed?A: Any time a tooth is damaged, it’s important for you to visit your dentist for a proper assessment. Sometimes tiny chips in teeth can be manageable and will not require any work. Other times, neglecting to fix a chip or crack can result in further damage including cavities, gum disease or losing the tooth completely.Schedule an appointment at either of our Winnipeg dentist offices (St. Vital or Garden City) to determine the best option to keep your smile healthy!
