My tooth is broken. How can cosmetic dentistry help me?
A broken tooth can really make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, and it can cause problems when you speak and chew. But it’s also important to repair a broken tooth because it needs to be protected. Otherwise, you may end up with further damage to the tooth, resulting in serious problems that are complicated and costly to fix. Fortunately, we offer several options that restore functionality and correct the appearance of a broken tooth.
A dental crown is a restoration that completely encases your natural tooth. The crown not only strengthens the tooth and protects it from further damage, but it also eliminates the cosmetic flaw. Porcelain veneers are another excellent choice for masking the appearance of a tooth that is chipped or broken. Depending on the amount of tooth that has been broken off, natural-colored composite fillings can be an effective solution. Composite fillings can easily be color-matched and shaped to fill the space left by a broken tooth.
