Cracked Tooth Repair

Teeth are made from the strongest substance in the body. Unfortunately, they are not exempt from damage. If you are suffering from a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, we can help you at Montevallo Family Dentistry. Dr. Shunnarah is known for his expertise in restorative, cosmetic and general dentistry. This means that we can restore the function as well as the beauty of your teeth after damage. Our practice offers seamless repair for patients who have cracked a tooth due to the following:

  • Biting down on something too hard
  • Mouth-related Injury
  • Severe decay that has weakened a tooth
  • Old dental filling that no longer supports existing tooth enamel

If you have a cracked tooth, it may not produce pain or symptoms. However, all types of tooth damage need attention. In most cases, a cracked tooth will cause discomfort when chewing or become very sensitive if the fracture affects the tooth nerves. If your damaged tooth is a source of disruption in your daily activities, please let us know as soon as possible. Dr. Shunnarah proudly offers same day dentistry for situations like cracked tooth repair.

Repairs to Damaged Teeth

Your course of treatment will depend on the cause, severity and location of the damage. Minor cracks and chips can often be repaired with a simple and cost-effective dental bonding. Our office uses composite resin bonding, a durable and tooth-colored material that naturally blends with your smile. For more severe tooth fractures or areas that are highly visible, a dental crown or porcelain veneer may be recommended. Regardless of which treatment is necessary, you can trust that we will use the highest level of precision and care. Our cracked tooth repair services are performed in a comfortable, stress-free office environment. If you prefer, you may choose sedation dentistry during your procedure for complete relaxation.

At Montevallo Family Dentistry, we consider it a privilege to not only protect your smile but to restore it when unexpected damage occurs. Whether you have a minor tooth crack or a severely broken tooth, Dr. Shunnarah makes it a priority to deliver sustainable and beautiful results.
