Can You Repair A Broken Tooth?

Our teeth are very strong, but unfortunately, they are not invincible. When a tooth becomes chipped, cracked, or broken, you need to see your dentist right away for a restorative solution. How do we fix a broken tooth? Employing both cosmetic and restorative dentistry, we can restore a tooth to full function and appearance, often in a single visit.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fixing Broken Teeth

Question: How do I respond to a broken tooth?
Answer: When you break a tooth, don’t panic. Try to recover any pieces of the toothy you can and bring them to the office with you. However, if this is impossible don’t worry, we can still repair the tooth. In the time between the incident and seeing the dentist, you may consider applying a cold compress against the side of the face to control swelling. You can also use gauze to stem any bleeding.

Question: What dangers does a damaged tooth pose for my smile?
Answer: Without treatment, a damaged tooth can expose sensitive inner tooth structure to bacteria, allowing cavities and potentially even an infection can form. You can also experience tooth sensitivity and toothaches.

Question: Will I need a crown?
Answer: For serious damage, we place a crown over the tooth. Made from lifelike ceramic, the crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth. The restoration will be custom-made to blend seamlessly with your smile and protect the tooth from decay or infection.

Question: Can you fix the issue in one visit?
Answer: Yes. Using CEREC technology, we can create and place a dental crown in a single visit. In addition, we can also repair minor damage with dental bonding, using a composite resin to fix a tooth in one visit as well.
