Your teeth are made of the strongest substance in your entire body. However, they are still subject to damage under certain pressures. When teeth break, chip or crack, your smile appearance can be threatened as well as compromise your dental health. Any damage to a tooth exposes the tooth to decay, infection and sensitivity. Whether you suffered a bad fall or bit down on something too hard, it is important that you seek treatment for a chipped tooth sooner rather than later.
As part of our general dentistry treatments at Riverwood Dental, we proudly offer chipped tooth repair using top quality materials and advanced techniques. Regardless of the severity of your tooth fracture or its location within your mouth, we are confident we can restore your smile to optimal health and aesthetics. Our office offers modern amenities, cutting-edge dental technology and same day service for your convenience. You can trust that our staff is passionate about creating a positive experience for you. We can even provide sedation dentistry during your chipped tooth repair for your added comfort.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
When a tooth suffers minor damage, such as a tiny chip or crack, it may be easy to assume that treatment is not needed. However, even a hairline crack in your tooth can weaken the overall structure of your tooth and expose your inner tooth to harmful bacteria. Not only can this cause notable pain, but it can even jeopardize the life of the tooth. At Riverwood Dental, we can repair broken and cracked teeth using materials that look natural and offer long-term durability.
Most cracks and minor tooth damage can be repaired with dental bonding or tooth-colored composite resin. This is a painless and affordable procedure that can quickly restore the strength and appearance of the tooth. For more substantial tooth breaks, we may suggest a dental crown or a dental implant if the tooth needs to be extracted. Our dentist evaluates all tooth fractures carefully before recommending a conservative and effective means of repair. Regardless of what it takes to repair your damaged tooth, you can expect your restoration to blend seamlessly within your smile and support everyday dental function.
