Treatments for Fixing Tooth Cracks
posted: Oct. 15, 2018.
Have you recently cracked a tooth? If so, you need to call our office and schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Sohrab Saghezchi. This is important because if you ignore the problem, it could exacerbate and damage the entire tooth.
When you visit our office, our dental team will be happy to use one of many treatments to help your tooth. Some treatments available are:
-Dental bonding: Dental bonding is a simple treatment that involves your dentist covering the tooth with a special dental resin material. The resin is colored to match the color of the tooth. Once the tooth is ready, your dentist will place the resin over it. Then, he will shape it and harden it. Finally, he will polish it to give it an extra sparkle.
-Dental veneers: A dental veneer is a shell that is very thin and is made in a dental lab. Before the veneer is placed, your dentist will need to trim some of the enamel. When the veneer is made and sent to our office, our dentist will glue it to the front surface of the tooth to keep it in one piece.
-Dental crowns: A dental crown also requires a little bit of shaving as well as dental lab time. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that replaces the tooth enamel. When the tooth and crown are ready, your dentist will cement the crown over the tooth to keep it strong.
