Cracked and Chipped Teeth Nowra
Fixing Your Smile With Easy Solutions!
Cracked or Chipped Teeth
When you visit our Nowra dental clinic with cracked or chipped teeth, our dentist will first have to understand a few things so they can provide you with the best care and treatment solutions.
Treatment for Cracked Teeth at Nowra Dentists
The first thing to do is to disinfect the area to prevent bacteria from causing further problems. Then, depending on the severity of the case, your dentist at Nowra may recommend a dental filling, full coverage restoration, or root canal treatment.
Tooth-coloured dental fillings are advised for small- to mid-sized cracked teeth. Your dentist at Nowra will first reshape the tooth to receive the dental filling. Then, the best filling shade will be selected so the restoration will blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. The filling will be shaped as naturally as possible and it will be cured in place to fully renew your smile!
Dental crowns or full coverage restorations may also be done if the fracture is too large for a composite filling to fix. To reinstate the tooth structure, rejuvenate its function, and protect it from further damage, a porcelain or gold crown is “capped” on the tooth.
Meanwhile, root canal treatment at Nowra Dentists is advised if the damage is too large and the pulp is exposed. An exposed pulp is extremely painful and has a high chance of infection because it is where blood vessels and nerves are. To avoid this, the tooth must be cleaned and sealed. Then, a dental crown will be placed to complete the repair.
