Cracked Tooth Repair

Your tooth enamel, found on the exterior surface of your tooth, is the hardest substance in your entire body. Although tooth enamel is meant to last a lifetime, as we age our teeth are exposed to a variety of wear and tear. Moreover, grinding your teeth, clenching or chewing hard objects can deteriorate tooth enamel, putting your smile in jeopardy. If you are experiencing symptoms such as intense or erratic pain while chewing, or pain when you drink something hot or cold, you may have a cracked tooth. Often a cracked tooth is difficult to distinguish because pain can be intermittent.

If you are worried that you may have cracked a tooth, the team at Park Slope Dental Arts is here to help. Experiencing a cracked tooth can be extremely painful, often resulting in emergency trips to the dentist. We understand how this can be an alarming situation for anyone to experience. Call Park Slope Dental Arts to learn more about emergency needs or to schedule a visit for general dental care with one of the experienced doctors today.

 

 

Repairs to Damaged Teeth

If you have a damaged or broken tooth often the method of repair depends on the type of cracked tooth. A cracked tooth will show signs and symptoms ranging from intermittent pain to severe pain. Often the tooth will not be separated into pieces but the crack can cause infection that can spread, making for an even more painful experience. The team at Park Slope Dental Arts understands how difficult dealing with oral health problems can be. We work with our patients to put them at ease before, during and after dental procedures to ensure they are comfortable and relaxed.

There are many options available to patients for repairing damaged teeth. We care deeply about your smile and do everything possible to keep your teeth looking and feeling their best. In some cases, repairing a cracked or chipped tooth is easy by reattaching the portion with a special bonding agent. Other treatments involve acrylic fillings or a dental crown to ensure your smile is intact once again. If you or a family member is concerned about a potential cracked, chipped or broken tooth, don't wait to contact Park Slope Dental Arts today. Our experienced dental professionals are dedicated to helping patients feel their best.
