Cracked Tooth Repair
A cracked or damaged tooth is not only painful, but also a risk for infection. This can be an invitation to food particles that can form harmful bacteria. Exposed soft tissue below the tooth enamel make a cracked tooth especially sensitive to cold or hot temperatures, making it difficult to drink or chew.
When you have a cracked tooth, it is important that you get timely and effective dental care before additional damage is done. This will maximize the chances of saving the tooth. Our experienced dental team are experts at cracked tooth repair. We offer several excellent cracked tooth solutions to our patients.
Depending on the location and extent of the crack, we will determine the most effective treatment to restore your smile.
Repairs to Damaged Teeth
Damaged teeth spoil a great smile and leave you susceptible to infection. Exposed pulp, the soft tissue beneath the enamel, makes it sensitive to temperature extremes and subject to infection. To repair a cracked or damaged tooth, your Lakewood Dental Trails endodontist offers dental crowns to provide a protective cover for the tooth which looks like your natural tooth. Chipped teeth can be repaired with a special bonding resin that replaces the chipped segment of the tooth.
If you have pain or sensitivity in a tooth and suspect it is damaged, call your Lakewood Dental Trails team right away. Our emergency scheduling makes room for urgent visits. We will see you in the shortest time possible to repair the damaged tooth.
Avoid chewing or biting with damaged teeth, and stay away from very hot or cold food or beverages until you can have the tooth evaluated and get it fixed. Custom crowns from Lakewood Dental Trails will restore your smile and protect damaged teeth from further damage or infection. Contact us today to schedule your appointment for cracked tooth repair.
