Ceramic Porcelain Crowns 

in Birmingham, MI

Teeth are remarkably strong, but they can break, chip, or fracture. Sometimes this can happen from physical accidents, such as falling. Other times, this may be a part of an aging process. Broken teeth can be a source of pain and hinder patients from smiling. It can affect self-confidence and experiencing life to the fullest. Broken teeth can be especially painful if the inner pulp of the tooth is exposed. The inner pulp contains the nerves, connective tissues, and vessels of the tooth. The pain can be excruciating if the pulp becomes infected.

First steps

A broken tooth can be painful and frightening at times. The first step is to see your dentist as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Many dentists leave slots open in their schedules to accommodate for dental emergencies. If only part of your tooth is broken, you may want to hold onto the fragmented piece to bring with you to your appointment. The dentist may want to inspect it. 

 

Dental Options for Broken Tooth

 

There are a variety of dental options for broken tooth. Some of the common options for fixing a broken tooth include crowns, veneers, dental implants, bonding, root canal, fillings, and dental sealants.

Crowns are an effective and convenient solution for covering and replacing the broken tooth. They are typically thicker than veneers and are made of metal, porcelain, and ceramic. On the other hand, veneers are custom-made colored shells made of porcelain or composite resin material. They typically treat tooth loss and aim at addressing cosmetic issues.

Bonding includes using the chipped portion of the tooth to improve the appearance of the tooth. A blue light hardens the composite molding and fixes the tooth. Conversely, a root canal procedure occurs when the infectious pulp develops in the void space of the tooth. The dentists’ job is to remove the infection and place a crown to prevent the infection from spreading.
