Broken Teeth- PHC Dental Care of Miami Florida

There are several treatment options available depending on the severity of the fracture. Here are some common treatments:

  • Dental Bonding: For minor chips or fractures. In this procedure, a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the affected area and shaped to match the natural tooth. It is then hardened with a special light, providing a durable and aesthetic restoration.
  • Dental Crowns: When a significant portion of the tooth is damaged. A crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire tooth, providing strength, protection, and restoring its appearance. Crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.
  • Veneers: If the broken tooth is primarily a cosmetic concern, veneers can be a suitable option. Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of the tooth. They improve the appearance of chipped or fractured teeth by providing a natural-looking solution.
  • Root Canal Therapy: In cases where the fracture extends into the tooth’s pulp chamber, root canal therapy may be necessary. This procedure involves removing the damaged or infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal, and filling it with a dental material. A crown is often placed on top of the treated tooth for added protection and strength.
  • Dental Implants: If a broken tooth cannot be repaired, extraction may be necessary. In such cases, dental implants, artificial tooth roots, are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once fused, a dental crown is attached to the implant, providing a functional and natural-looking replacement tooth.

The most appropriate treatment will depend on factors such as the extent of the fracture, the location of the tooth, and the individual’s oral health. Call and speak with one of our qualified dentist who can evaluate and recommend the best treatment option for you.
