A chipped or cracked tooth can lead to other problems if not repaired. It is more than just an aesthetic problem; it can leave your tooth exposed and weaken the structure. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Vista Dental Care, our team of dental professionals can fix damaged teeth, restoring them to health and beauty.
Teeth are extremely resilient, but enough pressure or direct impact can break off a piece of your tooth, leaving the exterior deformed and the interior exposed. Bacteria and decay can attack this weakened area, leading to cavities, infection and other serious dental problems. A chipped tooth can usually be repaired in just one visit to our office. We can use dental resin or filling material to restore the tooth. For large chips, a dental crown, inlay or onlay may be required.
Cracked or broken teeth should be considered an urgent dental issue. Many broken teeth can cause sensitivity or pain, especially if the nerve root inside the tooth is impacted. Even if there is no pain or discomfort, the tooth is in jeopardy of further damage or infection.
Small cracks can be filled. If the tooth is broken or there is a large crack that cannot easily be repaired with bonding or filling, it may require more protection. Our team can create a sturdy dental crown to cover the broken tooth and restore the structure and functionality. Inlays and onlays can also be used to repair smaller or localized damage. At Vista Dental Care, we offer CEREC dental crowns, inlays and onlays that can be completed in one visit to our office in Ontario.
When you realize you have a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, do not hesitate to contact Vista Dental Care today for an appointment. We accept many insurance plans and we have convenient payment options available.
