Can My Broken, Chipped or Cracked Tooth Be Fixed?

A big FYI: tooth enamel is one of the toughest substances in the body. But, combine any bit of tooth decay with a life event that ends up with you taking damage, and damage will occur. 

When and if it does, we’re here to help with the pain and bring your smile back to maximum positivity

Chipped Tooth

Small cracks in teeth can sometimes be fixed with dental veneers. They seal and fill the fractured area of the tooth with a composite resin. Larger fractures may require dental implants or a root canal.

Cracked Tooth

No two situations are the same. Most minor chips in teeth can be fixed with cosmetic dental bonding, while more significant damage may call for a crown. If this is the case, we use composite resins so that the repaired tooth looks natural.

Broken Tooth

When a tooth undergoes trauma and is fractured, a dental crown may be able to fix the damage, plus they’re longlasting and very natural in appearance.

Repair For Cracked, Chipped or Broken Tooth

Did you know tooth enamel is one of the toughest substances in your body? While it can be laid low by sugar and poor dental hygiene habits, it can also take physical damage from falls, collisions, or unexpected biting down on a solid piece of something.

Add a tooth with some stage of decay and these unpredictable life moments that end up with you in pain and in need of emergency dental care. This is where we tell you not to worry, and we mean it.

There are a number of things we can do to take away the pain, restore your dental health and bring back that sweet smile of yours!

 

Dental Filling & Bonding

If a limited section of a tooth and/or its enamel are lost, dental bonding is a possible remedy. It fills in chips on the tooth that are visible with a composite resin specially mixed to match the color of your natural teeth.

Root Canal Therapy

If a tooth is damaged, but the root is still in place, a root canal may be necessary to remove damaged pulp from the tooth. The canal is then cleaned, sealed, and normally covered with a dental crown.

Dental Implants

A dental crown-type post is anchored into the tooth canal, creating a platform for dental implants–which fully replace a lost tooth.

Dental Crowns (Major Chips)

When a substantial section of a tooth has become detached, due to decay or otherwise, some of the remaining tooth may need to be removed and covered with a very strong, realistic fake tooth.

Dental Veneers

Carefully protecting the front of a tooth damaged by wear or trauma, dental veneers are made of composites or porcelain. They are very thin and non-invasive, but provide quite a bit of protection to the tooth.

Cosmetic Bonding (Minor Chips)

This dental procedure is simple, easy, and usually requires no anesthetic of any kind. Cosmetic bonding uses a tooth-colored resin shaped to look like the actual tooth. Ultraviolet light hardens the resin.

5/5
I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
