Causes of Broken Teeth
The treatments we provide for our patients vary based on the damage your teeth have.
You may have a chipped tooth from hitting your tooth on something or getting hit in the mouth by something. In fact, that is how most broken, and fractured teeth happen.
If you grind your teeth, you can wear it down until it eventually cracks down the center. These often result in extraction, and we strongly recommend treating such an injury as an emergency.
If your teeth are in bad shape, your broken tooth can be caused by the amount of decay that has weakened your teeth.
If you don’t know how you broke your tooth, that’s okay. We can help you determine what treatment you need to restore your smile. Please keep reading to learn more.
Treatments for Broken Teeth
There are several treatment options depending on what tooth broke, how badly broken it is, and your budget. Dr. Todd Shatkin has the skill and years of experience to help you get a smile you love. Please keep reading to learn about the possible treatments.
If you have minor imperfections, you may be able to fix your broken teeth with dental bonding.
Dental bonding is primarily a cosmetic treatment that is designed to help repair the damage, reshape the teeth and color correct a smile.
Dental bonding may be suitable for you when you have chips and cracks. This treatment involves your dentist painting on a composite resin to help you get the desired tooth shape and color. The composite resin is set with a special UV light.
The results can last many years when you take good care of your teeth.
You may be interested in porcelain veneers when you have significant damage to your smile and multiple broken teeth.
A porcelain veneer is a thin strip of porcelain that gets laid onto your tooth that is minimally shaved down to prevent the piece from adding bulk to your smile.
It is non-invasive and provides you with a brand new smile when the treatment is done. Many celebrities opt to get veneers to perfect their smiles. It is a very popular cosmetic dental treatment but also has the added benefits of restoring a smile affected by broken teeth.
Mini Dental Implants
If your tooth is damaged beyond saving, you may need to have it extracted. Of course, no one wants a big hole in their smile, which is why many people opt to have a missing tooth replaced by a mini dental implant.
You can have a single tooth replaced by a mini dental implant and be able to walk away that day, able to bite into an apple. The procedure is minimally invasive and provides excellent results that patients love.
Financing Options for Your Treatment
We believe that everyone deserves to be able to fix their smile that is marred by broken teeth. We gladly accept financing plans if you are on a budget or can’t afford your treatment in one payment.
You can make flexible monthly payments instead of one lump sum for cosmetic dental care.
If you want to talk about our financing options, please give us a call today. We would be happy to help you learn more about how you can afford your best smile yet.
