A damaged tooth can cause oral health concerns. Whether it is a small chip or large crack, every damaged tooth needs repair to protect it from further problems. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer effective cracked, broken and chipped tooth repair at our state-of-the-art dental center in Federal Way. If you have a severely broken or dislodged tooth, we offer same day emergency dental appointments for fast repairs.
A sharp impact can chip a tooth, removing a small piece of tooth enamel or dentin. Sports injuries, vehicle accidents, falls and other events can cause a chipped tooth; even biting down on a hard object can chip a tooth. Most chipped teeth do not cause pain initially, but if left unrepaired, the chip can increase risks of tooth decay or infection.
Chipped tooth repair is a quick procedure that can be completed in one visit. Chips can be repaired with a dental filling or bonding. We offer composite resin fillings and bonding that can be color-matched to the tooth for a discreet repair. Once completed, the repair is almost invisible, improving the health and appearance of your damaged tooth.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
Cracked or broken teeth are more serious than a chipped tooth. A cracked or broken tooth is very susceptible to decay and infection that can jeopardize the health of the tooth. Repairs to cracked or broken teeth can include fillings, bonding or inlays/onlays to replace missing tooth material and seal the tooth. For larger cracks or broken teeth, a dental crown may be required to restore the tooth. Our dental team can perform tooth restorations and repairs for cracked and broken teeth at our facility in Federal Way.
