Emily’s chipped front tooth filling story
Whether you have chipped your front tooth or broken a front tooth filling, Dr. Bauer can easily restore the look of the tooth! Emily had come in with her front tooth chipped and worn down from the constant grinding of her teeth while she sleeps at night. Dr. Bauer was able to fix her issue with composite, he reshaped the tooth to restore the natural look of the tooth! Without the need to get numb, Emily was able to get a natural looking fix to her tooth in under 30 minutes.
Emily was able to walk away with an even length of both front teeth, she couldn’t be more satisfied. We also recommended a night guard to prevent the grinding of her teeth while she sleeps. The results were flawless and therefore Emily was ecstatic!

Chipped front tooth filling
One note about the longevity of these types of composite restorations needs to be written about. They do not last as long as fillings in the back, which have over a 90% 5 year survival rate, or other dental work. This is because they are easier to break from bad habits such as chewing on ice, biting nails, or using your teeth as a tool. Also people tend to replace them more often to ensure that they are looking as fresh as possible. I always tell patients this may need to be done again. I expect at least 5 years out of these fillings but more than 10 is very impressive.
