Chipped Tooth Repair

When a break in the armor on your teeth occurs, bacteria have an easy route inside your tooth. The softer pulp inside is more vulnerable to decay and infection, especially when it is exposed through a crack or chip. Even though your tooth may not hurt due to the damage, it still needs immediate attention. If left exposed, you may begin having toothaches a few months down the road when decay or infection reaches the inner sanctum of your tooth canals and impacts the nerves. At this point, you may need a root canal to save the tooth, if the crack has not spread to the root – if that occurs, you may lose the tooth completely.

Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth

In comparison to a root canal or extraction, a repair to a chipped or cracked tooth is a simple procedure. Our experienced dental team can fill small cracks, use dental bonding for chips or do more extensive repairs on broken teeth with inlays, onlays or dental crowns. In most cases, a damaged tooth can be repaired in one visit, without any painful procedures. Our friendly team will help you relax while we repair your teeth and restore your smile to excellent health.

The next time you or a family member breaks a tooth, contact our office immediately. We offer emergency dental appointments for severely broken teeth and prompt appointments for any other type of dental repair. Most dental insurance plans are welcome and we have payment options for your convenience.
