Repairing A Broken Tooth

Dealing with a Broken or Chipped Tooth

Tooth Spa in Sunnyvale will completely restore your broken or chipped teeth. Broken, chipped, and crack teeth can occur at any time for a number of reasons.

Often times, a chipped tooth happens as a result of physical trauma to the mouth from something accidental like a slip and fall. However, a broken tooth or cracked tooth can also be the direct result of poor dental hygiene.

Broken Tooth

Over time, teeth can rot from the inside out, and this may not be detectable without regular dental visits. Eventually, the tooth can eventually crack when pressure is applied to it, such as when doing something as simple as taking a bite of food or chewing a piece of gum.

Not only are broken teeth an eyesore to look at, but they can also be dangerous if left alone. Over time, the broken tooth can rot out further, leading to pain in the mouth and further dental issues. In addition, such a condition can lead to the exposure of nerves or the root of the tooth, which can lead to extreme pain when eating. It is important to see our Sunnyvale dentists right away upon noticing even a small chip or cracked tooth so that the proper dental restoration procedures can be performed.

Dental Restoration

In terms of the different dental restoration techniques that are available for a cracked or chipped tooth, there are may different options. The one that will apply best for any given situation varies greatly depending on the severity of the tooth damage.

One of the most common techniques for a chipped tooth is to simply have it filed down, which is one of the procedures that is offered at Tooth Spa. Filing a chip down can be very effective and a quick fix for a tooth with minimal damage. However, for a tooth that is severely broken or chipped, other procedures may be necessary.

Tooth Spa also offers complete restoration procedures for broken teeth. If the broken piece of the tooth is still intact, for example, it may be possible to have it re-bonded or reattached to the tooth itself. However, if this is not a possibility, then we also offers full veneers, which essentially replaces or covers the broken or chipped teeth with porcelain teeth that are made to match the patient's existing ones. Therefore, regardless of the amount of damage done to the teeth, we have the tools and expertise necessary to fix it and give every patient a smile they can be proud of.

If you have a tooth that is broken or chipped, now is the time to make an appointment with Tooth Spa in Sunnyvale and have it taken care of by a professional before the damage gets any worse.
