The Humiliation of Chipped Teeth

cracked tooth sketchAsk anyone what they would change about their appearance if they could, and you may be met with a laundry list of things they wish they dislike about their appearance. For some reason, even the most attractive people aren’t entirely comfortable with how they look. Some things are more bothersome than others, and some seemingly small imperfections are enough to destroy a person’s self-esteem entirely. There are those who become a recluse, refusing to leave the house, go to work, or even talk to others, because of some aspect of their appearance. For many people, the top problem that causes self-consciousness is chipped teeth.

You might be surprised at just how common chipped teeth are.  The reason they aren’t noticed more often is that molars, way in the back of the mouth where they are unseen, are often the ones chipped.  When a back tooth is chipped, it is not nearly as big of a problem as when it is a front tooth that is easily seen.  A chipped molar might feel strange, and might even be a little sharp for a while, but they are easy to get used to in time, and the sharp edge wears down.  When a front tooth is chipped, however, it can be embarrassing and can make a person insecure and anxious.  The embarrassment may change their smile, their laugh, and even their speech, as they work to conceal the chipped tooth.

If you are among the millions of people living with a chipped tooth, help is as close as a visit to your dentist.  The dentist can bond a small piece of resin to the tooth to fill in the chip and make your tooth look new.  The process is fast, easy, and painless, and it can transform the way you see yourself, and the way you feel.  What are you waiting for?  Stop being embarrassed about your appearance.  Call your dentist and smile with confidence!
