Repairing broken or cracked teeth at Bupa Dental
It can be a shock when your tooth becomes cracked, chipped or broken. A broken tooth can be caused by decay, trauma from playing sports or even from biting into hard food.
When a broken tooth occurs, rinse your mouth with warm water and hold an ice pack, wrapped in clean towel, to the affected area. Even if you think the damage is minimal, it’s important to have it assessed by a dentist.The damage could worsen if left untreated, but it can also cause pain and discomfort. Different services might be needed to repair the break depending on the severity and cause. Fillings are used for tooth decay damage, but trauma damage could need crowns or veneers.
If you’ve suffered from a broken tooth, book an appointment at a Bupa Dental clinic as soon as possible to assess the severity and avoid further damage.
