A car accident, fall or even biting on a popcorn kernel can result in a chipped or cracked tooth. In many cases, a chipped or damaged tooth may not hurt, but it still needs prompt attention from a dentist. A chipped or broken tooth can put the tooth at risk for decay or infection. At Creative Dentistry & Medspa, we offer quick and effective broken and chipped tooth repair to protect your tooth from further damage.
A chipped tooth can be a concern for multiple reasons. The lost enamel exposes the inner tooth to possible decay, and it may weaken the tooth structure. If it is a front tooth, the chip can cause aesthetic concerns as well. Most chipped teeth can be quickly repaired with a filling or bonding. Our talented dentists can use dental bonding materials to replace the lost tooth material and tooth-colored resin that will match the tooth exactly. Your tooth can be repaired in one visit and look as good as new.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
More severe damage to a tooth, like cracks or broken pieces, need more elaborate dental treatments. Some cracked and broken teeth may be able to be repaired with fillings or dental bonding, but more serious damage may require a dental crown or inlays/onlays. A crown offers protection for the entire tooth, while inlays or onlays cover a larger portion of the tooth with a porcelain covering. Our dentist can determine the best option to repair a broken tooth. We offer white crowns and tooth-colored dental restorations to keep your smile looking natural and beautiful.
