Chipped Tooth Repair
A chipped or broken tooth can change the appearance of your smile and put your teeth at risk. Even if a damaged tooth is not painful, it should be repaired as quickly as possible. At Laguna West Dental Care, we offer stress-free tooth repairs and emergency dental appointments for patients that immediate dental care.
A small chip may not seem like a dental emergency, but once the enamel is compromised, your tooth is put at risk. Enamel protects the tooth from decay and infection, and a chip can expose the softer dentin underneath the enamel that can quickly deteriorate. Most chipped teeth can be quickly repaired in an office visit. We can fill or use dental bonding to fix the chip, restoring the appearance and protective covering. Our dentists can use tooth-colored material that matches your natural tooth, discreetly repairing the chip or other damage.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
Impact to the mouth or biting on a hard item can crack a tooth. Often this can be painful, especially if the inner tooth is exposed. A broken tooth should never be ignored, as it can lead to more serious oral issues, including infections and tooth loss. Broken teeth can usually be repaired with fillings or bonding. If there is significant tooth loss or extensive damage, a dental crown may be required to save the tooth and keep it protected. We will provide a thorough exam of your broken tooth and offer repair options to help restore your tooth and smile.
If you have a damaged tooth and need emergency tooth repair, call for an appointment. We can often see patients the same day for emergency dental problems.
