Mint Dental SE1

Chipped Tooth

  • Your tooth has chipped off.
  • The tooth is fractured near the root.
  • Your filling has fallen off, taking the tooth with it.
  • You’re experiencing pain and sensitivity.

While the main reason for fixing a chipped tooth might be for aesthetic purposes, patients should also bear in mind that a broken, chipped or cracked tooth is an invitation for bacteria to invade the deep layers of the teeth, which can cause damage and infection if the pulp is exposed.

Don’t worry – booking an appointment at our London practice today means we can solve your problem within the hour either with dental bonding to rebuild the chipped tooth, or with a crown to protect it if it’s cracked.

Options to fix a chipped tooth

A chipped tooth is a straightforward, easy repair that will take one sitting. 

1. Dental bonding:

  • For smaller chips and cracks
  • Works perfectly for front teeth
  • The same shape and colour
  • Costs from £40

2. Composite veneer:

  • Larger tooth chips and fractures
  • Non-invasive similar to bonding
  • Better stability and stronger
  • Lasts up to 10 years (from £275)

Porcelain veneer

  • Most natural-looking
  • Very strong and life-like
  • Lasts up to 30 years
  • Costs from £725

3. Dental crown:

  • Severely damaged tooth
  • Preserves the tooth root
  • Longer lifespan (up to 30 years)
  • Same-day placement from £750

Available early and late for chipped teeth

Avoid irreversible damage to your tooth! Even if you think the damage is minimal, it’s best our dentists assess the severity of the damage and explain the best next steps.

Time and time again, we’ve seen this problem get worse when ignored, which can lead to damage of the tooth’s nerve and even eventual tooth loss.

Fixing a chipped tooth is one of the most inexpensive dental treatments available without compromising a natural or long-lasting finish.

Your emergency appointment fee covers:

  • 3D imaging software allows us to see what’s really going on.
  • Appointments are faster and diagnostics.
  • Treatment is completed on the day for an additional cost.
  • Prescriptions and X-rays included.
  • Patients can be seen within 2 hours of their call.


“The staff at Mint are very nice and very professional. I accidentally turned up one hour late for my appointment, but they did not complain and managed to fit me in. They did an excellent job whitening my teeth and fixing a chipped tooth. My teeth haven’t looked this good in 30 years!” Charles, London

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.

Take priority

  • Ten emergency appointments are reserved daily.
  • Specialist dentists are on-call to deal with your emergency.
  • Out-of-hours phone line to push you to the top of the queue.
  • Walk-in patients are welcomed, but it’s best to check, just in case we’re over run.
  • On-site CEREC machine to fit, repair or replace modern dental crowns.
  • Sedation dentistry options like IV, inhalation and oral sedation for anxious patients.

Dental tip: Initially, rinse the mouth with salt water. If your chip has caused a sharp or jagged edge, you can cover it with sugarless chewing gum to keep it from scraping or cutting your tongue or the inside the lip or cheek. If you are to eat, make sure to eat only soft foods that help you avoid biting down on the broken tooth.
