Which type of tooth restoration is best will have to be determined by a dentist who can analyze the severity of your situation and provide a recommendation on how to repair tooth imperfections.
If you have a broken tooth you need to make an appointment with your dentist right away!
Some people experience little to no pain after breaking a tooth, but others have intense discomfort, especially if the nerve is exposed. If you are in pain, you may want to seek emergency dental care.
To reduce the risk of infection, it is important to make an appointment as soon as possible to see a restorative dentist. To reduce pain in the meantime, try using a cold compress and taking over-the-counter pain medications.
A broken tooth can be considered a dental emergency if you are in pain or have bleeding that won’t stop.
Chipped teeth, however, are rarely considered a dental emergency. Most often, chipped teeth cause minimal discomfort, so there is no rush to see an emergency dentist.
If you are in an emergency dental situation, call Dr. Lee Simon now.
There are many ways to fix a broken tooth using synthetic or natural materials. Broken — including chipped, cracked, and missing — teeth can be repaired with bridges, dentures, partials, implants, caps, or crowns. Which process is best for you depends on your unique situation and your smile goals.
Insurance will typically cover some, if not all, of dental restoration costs. The only time insurance would most likely not cover tooth restorations is if they are being done for cosmetic reasons.
