Your teeth are the hardest substance in your entire body. Unfortunately, they are not invincible. At Tuscany Dental Care, we can repair cracked, broken or chipped teeth with remarkable expertise. Dr. Duque is a talented dentist who is skilled in general dentistry, as well as restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Therefore, when restoring the health and function of your damaged tooth, you can be sure that she will also restore it to its most natural aesthetics as well. Whether you cracked a tooth from biting down on something too hard or your tooth was damaged due to severe decay, we can help you regain the confident smile you deserve.
Unless you have a large tooth fracture, your cracked tooth may not produce any symptoms or you may only have pain when chewing. However, a cracked tooth always needs professional attention, regardless of whether or not you are experiencing discomfort. At Tuscany Dental Care, many of our restorative dental procedures can be completed in a single office visit. We give patients every opportunity to get their smile repaired conveniently and effectively.
In the majority of cases, Dr. Duque can fix your cracked or chipped tooth with simple dental bonding. This is ideal for patients who need minor repairs on the enamel (outer layer) of their tooth. Our dental bonding is a tooth-colored composite resin material, which is quickly applied and gives natural and long-lasting results. For patients who have more extensive tooth damage, a root canal and/or dental crown may be suggested in order to address a potential infection and fully restore the form and integrity of the tooth. In other cases, porcelain veneers may used for larger tooth cracks that are on the front, more visible teeth. Dr. Duque will determine which restorative treatment plan is most appropriate for you based on your specific situation.
During cracked tooth repair at Tuscany Dental Care, your comfort comes first. Our office features modern patient amenities, a friendly staff and the latest technology for gentle dentistry. We also offer options in sedation dentistry to ensure your visit is as painless as possible. If your chipped, cracked or broken tooth is causing sensitivity or discomfort, please let us know so that we can see you promptly. Neglecting to address minor dental problems can quickly progress to more serious and costly complications.
