Chipped Tooth Repair
No matter how hard you try to protect your smile, there are times when tooth damage is unavoidable. Teeth can chip, crack or break, which can lead to threats to your smile aesthetics as well as your oral health. Regardless of whether you are experiencing pain, we want to see you as soon as possible after you chip a tooth. At Cardinal Dental, we offer a variety of general dental treatments to repair damaged teeth, including options that look natural and provide long-term functionality.
Our office is equipped with comfortable amenities and a knowledgeable staff. When it comes to fixing a chipped tooth, we use the most advanced dental technology available. While some chips can be repaired with tooth-colored bonding, others may require a dental crown. At Cardinal Dental, we can complete your dental crowns in a single day with CEREC technology. A damaged tooth is not something we want our patients to endure. Apart from making you cover your smile, it also means that your tooth structure is weakened and more exposed to harm.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
Even a hairline crack in your tooth needs to be repaired. Vertical cracks can provide a pathway for bacteria to enter the inner portion of the tooth and affect the nerves. This can be painful as well as jeopardize the life of the tooth. If you have sensitivity when biting down or see a noticeable crack in your tooth, turn to Dr. Blalock at Cardinal Dental for excellence in repair.
While cracks and minor chips can often be restored with simple dental bonding or composite resin fillings, more extensive tooth breaks may require a dental crown, dental implant or other restorative procedure. Dr. Blalock considers the location and severity of the fracture before explaining your treatment options. Regardless of what your broken tooth needs for repair, you can trust that your restoration will seamlessly blend with your existing smile and be strong enough for everyday dental function.
