Fractured or Worn Tooth
A tooth may crack or become worn out for different reasons. The most common of these are nail biting, chewing hard foods, poor dental hygiene, or dental injuries. Fortunately, a damaged tooth can be easily repaired with advanced dental procedures.
At A Supa Smile, we offer a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to fix damaged and worn out teeth. The correct procedure for you will depend on how badly your teeth are damaged. Because we have many treatment options to choose from, your Croydon dentists will work with you to choose the proper one.
Procedures That Can Repair Damaged Teeth
Customised mouthguards – teeth grinding can wear your teeth down over time. To avoid further damage, your dentist may require you to wear a custom mouthpiece to realign and improve your bite.
Dental bonding – this is used to repair a variety of dental flaws such as chipped, cracked, misshapen and teeth gaps including any teeth that have been damaged by decay. Generally, dental bonding doesn’t require an anaesthetic except when it’s being performed for cavities.
Dental veneers – veneers are bonded to the front of the tooth to conceal flaws and significantly improve tooth appearance. With proper care and maintenance, dental veneers can last up to three decades.
Dental crowns – if your tooth is badly chipped or painful when chewing or drinking, dental crowns may be recommended. A dental crown covers and protects the tooth as well as improves its overall appearance.
Root canal treatments – a damaged tooth is prone to develop infection, and once infection has extended to the dental pulp, the tooth may require root canal treatment. The treatment is recommended if you suffer from extreme and consistent tooth pain with accompanying sensitivity or swelling.
The Importance of Examining Damaged Teeth
If you see any fractures, cracks, or pits in your teeth, see your dentist as soon as you can. This is a crucial move in order to avoid further damage and prevent possible infection, which may result in tooth extraction if left untreated.
