Repairing a Chipped or Broken Tooth – Is fixing a chipped tooth worth it?
A young male patient visited US Dental clinic to get the veneers done. Patient already had composite veneers in his upper 4 and lower 2 front teeth. When he came to the clinic, his upper veneer had chipped off and he was more uncomfortable with it. He asked us about different materials which have more strength. We suggested porcelain veneers (Emax) which are made at labs and highly polished than composite veneers. He agreed to get those veneers done.
On the day of appointment, we removed composite veneers and preparation was done. Patient did not have much time as he stayed out of station, so we decided to take measurements with a dental scanning machine.

Here are the pictures before we prepared with old composite veneers.
What happens if your tooth chips?
After cementing the veneers, we clicked the pictures of the veneers. Upper 4 front and lower 2 front teeth are porcelain veneers.
These veneers look more polished and natural. Patient was happy and satisfied with his new looks and smile.
