A broken tooth can interfere with your speaking voice, your ability to chew food and the way you feel about your smile. If you have a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, your dentist in Clifton Hill may be able to help.
In our dental clinic, we offer tooth-coloured restorations, including fillings, bonding and tooth crowns.
Options for a Broken Tooth
If you have a broken tooth, a dental crown is an excellent way to build up that tooth and help restore your bite, speaking ability and the way you feel about your smile. Our dentist relies on tooth-coloured restorations, and your dental crown will be coloured and shaped to blend easily with your surrounding teeth.
A tooth crown is a tooth-shaped cover that fits over a tooth or a dental implant abutment. It is used widely across dentistry for the following purposes:
- To provide support for a weak or fractured tooth—following trauma, breakage or an infection
- To conceal tooth flaws like chips, small gaps, discolouration or shape issues
- To support a dental bridge
- To top a dental implant post
A tooth crown is ideal for adding height and restoring your broken tooth in Clifton Hill.
Preventing Future Tooth Breakage
The best way to avoid tooth breakage is to implement an excellent oral care routine and visit your dentist regularly.
Brushing and flossing regularly clear away the debris and acidity that may lead to enamel erosion and potential breakage.
In some cases, tooth breakage happens because of enamel wear, alignment issues or unchecked chips or cracks in your tooth. Your dentist can spot these issues earlier and help prevent future fractures.
If you grind and clench your teeth (bruxism) or play contact sports, ask your dentist about a nightguard to help prevent bruxism. If you play sports, make sure to wear the appropriate face gear as well.
