A cracked tooth is a problem because it reduces the strength of your tooth. When a cracked tooth is left alone, it could turn into a more serious problem. Plaque and tartar in the mouth are able to seep into the cracks and create decay and further damage. The problems can even move beyond the teeth to the gums and bone.
On its own, a cracked tooth is easier, quicker, and less expensive to fix than more extensive problems that could result from ignoring it. That’s why it’s smart to take care of this type of problem as soon as you or a dentist notices it.
Advances in general dentistry have created more options for repairing a cracked tooth. Our advanced techniques allow us to blend the color of the fixed tooth with your natural teeth for a seamless look.
If you think you have a cracked tooth, we recommend scheduling a comprehensive exam to determine the level of the damage and the best solution for you.
