Chipped Tooth Repair
A damaged tooth is vulnerable and needs professional repair to protect it from further health issues. Whether you have a small chip or a large crack has formed, once the exterior of the tooth is damaged, the softer, inner tooth can be in jeopardy. The team at True Dental offers expedient care for damaged teeth
to repair chips or cracks to protect your oral health.
The outer enamel on your teeth is one of the hardest substances in the body, meant to protect the live, softer pulp inside of the tooth. When impact or pressure causes a break in the enamel, bacteria can find their way inside the tooth. Plus, a chip or crack in the tooth’s armor can weaken the tooth, making it more likely to be damaged further. It is vital to have any chip or crack repaired as soon as possible, even if it is not painful, to protect the health of your tooth.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
Repairing a damaged or broken tooth can be done several ways. Our team at True Dental customizes every treatment plan to the patient and what will be best for their circumstances. Some chips or cracks can be filled or bonded; we offer composite resin repairs that can be color matched to your teeth to hide the repair while giving your damaged tooth protection.
Larger cracks or broken teeth may need more significant repairs. It may be necessary to fit a dental crown to cover the damaged tooth. Other options include inlays and onlays which are protective dental restorations that cover damaged portions of the tooth.
If you have a broken, cracked or chipped tooth, contact True Dental
right away. If you are in pain or the damage is severe, we offer emergency dental care with same day appointments.
