Damaged teeth can impact your smile in more ways than one. A chipped tooth can detract from the beauty of your smile, and it can jeopardize the tooth’s health. A cracked or broken tooth can be painful and be at risk for infection. When you need a cracked, broken or chipped tooth repair in Tampa, FL, call our team at Optum Dental Arts.
When a tooth is chipped, part of the hard enamel is removed, and the dentin below may be exposed. Dentin is more susceptible to decay, which can result in cavities in the tooth and other damage. A chipped tooth can be quickly repaired with a filling or dental bonding at our office. The procedure is not painful, and we can match the filling or bonding material to your tooth color for a discreet repair.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
A cracked or broken tooth can be caused by an accident or simply from biting down on a hard item like a popcorn kernel. Whenever you have a severely damaged tooth, you need a repair or tooth restoration as soon as possible. Even if the tooth does not hurt, it is susceptible to further damage, decay and infection. If a crack extends into the root, you could lose the tooth.
