Treatments offered by a dentist for a chipped tooth:

Dental Bonding: It is a process of fixing a chipped tooth in which the dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material and then hardens it with a special light. Dental bonding is used to treat a chipped tooth in which only a small amount of enamel is missing. Thus repair can be done in mere one dentist visit.

Dental Cap or Crown: Dentists use this treatment when a large part of the tooth is chipped or the chips are on the molar tooth. In this treatment, the tooth is covered with a cap which protects the tooth and also improves its appearance. The crown can be composed of metal, resin material, or ceramic. It may require two dentist visits to treat the chipped tooth with a crown.

Veneers: This treatment option is considered by the dentist when the front tooth is chipped. A veneer is a tooth-colored thin shell that is composed of a resin material or porcelain material. This process will also require two visits to a dentist.
