Broken teeth can be fixed with tooth-colored fillings. There are many ways to fix broken teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are safe, look natural, and make a tooth strong and durable.
A filling may not be the first solution you think of when you have a broken tooth, but this dental restoration is one of the most effective repairs. White fillings blend in with your teeth while protecting them from damage in the future.
There are several types of dental fillings that preserve your white smile and fix a broken tooth:
When you have a broken tooth, the last thing you want to do is draw more attention to it with an obvious dental repair like a silver filling. Amalgam fillings are not only unsightly, they contain trace amounts of mercury which are dangerous to your health. Some patients even ask to have their silver fillings carefully removed and replaced with composite fillings, so their smile looks healthy and complete.
Whatever dental restoration is used to repair your broken tooth, we always opt for a functional and aesthetically appealing solution that not only makes your tooth strong, but makes it look natural too.
Fillings are a versatile cosmetic dentistry repair and restorative dentistry repair. They are used for far more than just repairing a cavity and, in particular, prevent teeth from further deterioration or breakage. Opting for a filling when you have a broken tooth can eliminate the need for more invasive dental repairs.
Thanks to white fillings, a smile makeover doesn’t have to be lengthy or in-depth to be life-changing. Fixing that one broken tooth that is causing you discomfort, stress, and embarrassment is enough to make you want to smile all the time. Fixing multiple broken teeth that are making you look and feel old will rejuvenate you and complete your smile, so it looks natural and healthy.
Teeth can break for a variety of reasons, from a blow to the mouth to biting down wrong on a piece of ice.
Sometimes, a tooth is prone to breaking, whether you have weak tooth enamel or an existing filling that is too large and compromises the integrity of the tooth. At the time of your appointment, we will discuss all viable dental restorations to determine the best solution for your broken tooth. Many times, it’s a filling that gets the job done most effectively.
