If you have cracked or damaged teeth, you may have considered cosmetic dentistry or other repair options to reclaim your smile. Or maybe you don’t know your options. At our dental clinic, your Clifton Hill dentist lays out your options and helps you make the right choice for your smile.

At Clifton Hill Dental, we want to help your smile reach its potential, and we are here to provide you with options.

Cracked or Damaged Tooth Solutions

If you have a cracked tooth, you may benefit from dental bonding. This means your dentist applies a tooth—coloured resin to the chipped tooth, spreads it over the crack, bonds it with a special light and finishes it off with a polish. This is typically an inexpensive way to correct a tooth crack.

A tooth crown can also provide support and aesthetics to a cracked or damaged tooth. This tooth-shaped cap fits to the gumline and conceals a variety of tooth flaws while providing support against further damage.

If your tooth is damaged or fractured beyond repair, your dentist in Clifton Hill also offers tooth replacement options such as dental implants and dental bridges.

When you decide to repair your tooth, we provide a consultation and exam to help you choose the best option for your smile. During this exam, your dentist will learn more about your smile goals, and you are encouraged to ask questions and share any concerns.

Taking Care of Your Restored Tooth

Typically, you brush and floss as usual, but a member of our dental team will provide any specific instructions following your treatment.

Your dentist in Clifton Hill recommends visiting our dental clinic regularly for dental cleans and exams.
