Dental sealants on the back molars and premolars may protect your teeth from becoming infected or cracked and act as a barrier against bacteria.
A simple filling may suffice for small chips or breaks as a cracked teeth treatment.
For larger cracks and fractures, something that completely covers the tooth may be the best option for broken teeth treatment.
We understand cosmetic concerns as well as functional ones. If the broken tooth is visible when you smile, a tooth-coloured bonded material can be used to match surrounding teeth.
Your dentist may suggest a root canal to treat your broken teeth. The infection is treated, and then the crown is positioned to prevent the spread of the infection and further cracking.
Sometimes, a tooth cannot be fixed, and removal may be required. See our Missing Teeth section for more information.
