Cracked, Chipped And Broken Teeth Treatment
Think about how much use you get out of your teeth. Teeth go through an immense amount of chewing and biting actions, which place a lot of force on teeth. With time, these forces eventually weaken the teeth. As a result, teeth may break or chip especially if they have been filled in the past. Teeth with old amalgam fillings are particularly susceptible to breaking because being a metal, amalgam will expand and contract over time weakening the remaining tooth structure. Often these broken teeth will require porcelain crowns to strengthen them to withstand the normal chewing forces that we apply to our teeth. Have you ever suffered from pain when biting down or chewing on food? The food doesn’t have to be hard, even soft foods sometimes can trigger the pain. This may be an indication that you have a crack in your tooth. If left untreated, these cracks may start to spread and can lead into the middle of the tooth where the nerves and blood vessels are. This can then cause a lot of pain which may require root canal treatment. At Renew Dental Care, we can help identify any potential cracks which may lead to further problems in the future, and treat them so that your teeth have the best chance of long-term survival. Teeth can also chip due to accidents. Getting them seen to early will lead to better outcomes for your teeth. Leaving them untreated for too long, may result in losing the teeth altogether.
Treatment for cracked, chipped and broken teeth can vary depending on each specific case, these cosmetic dental treatments can include cosmetic veneers, dental crowns, dental implants and even white tooth fillings.
