Breaking a tooth can be painful and alarming. If you break a tooth, it may be possible to repair the damaged tooth. At AH Smiles our goal is to help you restore the function and appearance of your teeth in as little time as possible so you can go back to enjoying your beautiful smile.
In the event of a broken tooth contact Arlington Heights IL dentist Dr. Brent Engelberg. If a large piece of the tooth has been broken off, try to locate it and place it in a glass of milk and bring the tooth with you to your appointment.
Our dental care team offers a wide range of cosmetic and restorative treatment options. We help patients tailor their treatments to their unique dental health concerns- and always strive to provide the most conservative treatment option possible.
What are my options for repairing a broken tooth?
Treatment for a broken tooth will depend on the extent of the damage. In many cases, a small chip or crack can be repaired with dental bonding or a minimal prep dental veneer. More extensive damage may require a porcelain veneer or a dental crown to stabilize the tooth.
Will anyone be able to tell that my tooth had been broken after treatment?
Dr. Engelberg and Dr. Oleari are highly trained and experienced in cosmetic dental procedures. We provide predictable and natural-looking results that help to promote lasting oral health and improve and enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Using state of the art dental technology and modern dental materials, our dentists can create beautiful and seamless results that blend with your adjacent teeth.
Will I need to have my broken tooth extracted?
Whenever possible, Dr. Engelberg will work to save as much of the natural tooth structure as possible to help promote long-term stability of the bite and tooth alignment. In some cases where damage to the tooth could lead to infection, tooth extraction may be necessary. AH Smiles can help patients remove and replace teeth using dental implants.
