The enamel on teeth is one of the hardest substances in the body, protecting your teeth from damage. However, this outer shell can still be cracked or chipped from trauma, putting your tooth at risk for decay, structural damage or infection. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, come see the tooth repair experts at Dental Care Acworth. We offer affordable general dentistry treatments to fix and strengthen your damaged tooth at our office in Acworth. Our office is easily accessible from the surrounding areas of Kennesaw, Canton, Cartersville, Woodstock, Roswell and East Cobb.
Even a small chip in a tooth can jeopardize your oral health. Once the outer enamel is gone, decay can find its way into the softer inner pulp of the tooth. This can lead to severe oral health issues, including deep decay, infection and abscesses that may require a root canal or extraction. However, repairing a chip in a tooth when it first occurs is a quick and simple treatment, helping protect your tooth and oral health.
Repairs to Cracked Broken or Chipped Teeth
When the damage to the tooth is deeper, like a cracked or broken tooth, it is even more important to get professional care. Without repair, the tooth can be exposed to infection and decay. It can also be at higher risk for further damage that can lead to tooth extraction. At the first sign of a cracked or broken tooth, call our staff to make an appointment. We can repair damaged teeth and help prevent further oral health issues.
Cracked, chipped or broken teeth can be fixed a variety of ways. The type of repair depends on the amount of damage. Small chips and cracks can be repaired with fillings or bonding; larger damage may require inlays, onlays or dental crowns. When you come in for your appointment, we will discuss the options available and determine which repair is best for your situation. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
