Chipped Tooth Repair
Impact or pressure on teeth can cause chips and cracks that can jeopardize the tooth structure. Once the enamel is cracked or penetrated, bacteria and decay can enter the interior of the tooth and cause extensive damage. If you have a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, you need to repair the tooth to prevent further damage. Restore Dental offers broken, cracked and chipped tooth repair at our dental center in Highlands Ranch.
A small chip on the tooth may not be painful or seem like a major dental issue. While you can live with a chipped tooth without general dentistry treatment, it may impact the aesthetics of your smile and could be an opening for tooth decay. Once the enamel is removed, decay can take hold faster and deteriorate the inner tooth. Chipped tooth repair can usually be performed in one visit with a quick filling or dental bonding, restoring the appearance of the tooth and protecting it from decay.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
When a tooth is cracked or broken, you can call our office in Highlands Ranch for an emergency dental appointment. A cracked tooth should never be ignored; if the crack expands below the gumline, you could lose your tooth. Cracked and broken teeth can be repaired with fillings, bonding, inlays or onlays, depending on the extent of the damage. In some cases, a dental crown may be needed to repair a broken tooth that has lost too much tooth material to fill/bond or cover with inlays or onlays.
