Cracked Teeth Treatment
A cracked or chipped tooth can range from minor cosmetic imperfections to serious structural damage. During your exam, our Ooralea dentist may need to take an X-ray to determine the extent of your crack.
For minor chipping, bonding your enamel with a tooth-coloured composite may be the best – and simplest – treatment. Bonding simply covers the aesthetic flaw to make your tooth appear whole again.
Larger cracks that extend into the nerve of your tooth are best treated with root canal therapy (endodontic therapy) followed by a full-coverage crown. If the fracture is severe and non-restorable, our Ooralea dentists may recommend having the tooth extracted and then replaced with a dental implant.
