Do you have a broken tooth? If so, our dentist, Dr. Steven Sachs, encourages you to get it treated right away. If you can, bring the pieces of your tooth with you to your appointment. That way we can try to put the tooth back together. If that is not an option, our dental team will be happy to consider other treatments. Fortunately, there are many treatments that can help, including:
– Dental bonding (This treatment involves your dentist using dental resin to reshape your tooth. The resin will be applied to the tooth, shaped, and then hardened. This can give you a whole tooth once again.)
– Dental veneers (Dental veneers are thin shells that are made in a dental lab. Your dentist can create a veneer that is perfect for your tooth. Once it’s placed over the front enamel, it will look like a brand-new tooth.)
– Dental crowns (Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that replace the tooth enamel. A crown can be made for you and placed over your tooth. No one will even know you had a broken tooth because the crown will be whole and look completely natural.)
