When you have a tooth that is chipped or cracked, do not hesitate to get it repaired. At the Center for Restorative, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry, we can fix those damaged teeth and help prevent further dental problems with general dentistry. Even a small chip or crack can leave your inner tooth exposed. This can lead to tooth pain, decay and infection, even the loss of a tooth.
Chipped teeth usually are not painful, but that does not mean you should ignore the damage. Once the outer layer of your protective enamel is compromised, bacteria and decay can tunnel inside your tooth. A chip is quick and easy for our dental experts to fix. Often, all that is needed is a small filling or a porcelain onlay to repair the tooth. We have white, composite fillings to repair teeth, restoring them while keeping your smile white and healthy.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
When a tooth is cracked or broken, it is vital to visit one of our offices for treatment. Once the structure of the tooth is weakened, it is likely to be damaged further. If a crack progresses below the gum line, the tooth could be in danger of being lost. We can repair most broken, cracked or damaged teeth using inlays, onlays, fillings, dental bonding or dental crowns. This can prevent further damage and protect the health of the tooth. Our dentists can use repair options that match the color of your teeth to keep your smile white, without metal fillings or crowns.
When you have a damaged tooth, contact us right away, especially if you are in pain. We offer emergency dental care and same day appointments when our patients need urgent dental repairs. We have offices in Great Bridge, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach for your convenience. Ask about what insurance plans we accept. Most likely we can use your insurance to help cover your tooth repair.
