5 Popular Procedures for Treating a Broken Tooth

Don’t worry if you have a chipped or broken tooth, because there are many simple ways to repair and restore your smile. Discover the top five treatments.

Composite Bonding

Bonding has been a favorite in family dentistry to repair decayed and discolored teeth, but it’s now being used more and more to fix a broken tooth and chipped teeth. It’s remained so popular because it lasts more than ten years, doesn’t call for an anesthetic, and will match a tooth’s natural shade with ease.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a protective cap that completely covers a tooth to preserve its full function and restore its natural appearance. It’s one of the most common procedures prescribed by family dentistry experts for a broken tooth or chipped teeth because it offers so many benefits at a lower cost than other treatments.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are secured onto teeth. They are extremely popular because they provide the most natural and attractive results, while lasting up to 30 years with proper care. While porcelain veneers may cost more than other options, an affordable dentist should be able to put them in easier reach.

Root Canal

Very badly broken or chipped teeth usually demand a root canal, followed by a crown for protection and aesthetics. For the root canal procedure, a family dentistry specialist will simply remove the decayed portion and the nerve of the tooth. Even though it’s notorious for being painful, most people experience little or no discomfort.

Dental Implant

If you suffer a crack in your tooth that dips into the gum line, the tooth cannot be saved and will need to be extracted. Then, a dental implant will be used to replace your natural tooth. While this procedure may cost more than other treatments, finding an affordable dentist can greatly reduce your cost and concern.
