Your teeth are made from the strongest substance in your entire body. Unfortunately, that does not mean they are invincible. Just like other parts of your body, your teeth can suffer damage from time to time. Whether it is your child who chipped a tooth on the playground or your husband who cracked a molar during lunch, we can handle your tooth repair needs at Royal Oak Family Dental with our dental care services.
Regardless of the location or severity of your chipped tooth, it deserves professional attention. A chipped tooth can be sharp on the tongue and threaten your smile appearance. Most importantly, a chipped tooth means your outer tooth structure is compromised, and the health of the tooth may be in danger. At Royal Oak Family Dental, we have ways to restore the aesthetics and integrity of a tooth that has suffered damage. We will carefully present your options for chipped tooth repair, and let you take an active role in your dental treatment plan. For your convenience, we are open late on weekdays, and we address dental emergencies on a same day appointment basis.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
Whether it is a large break on your front tooth or a hairline crack on a back molar, you can trust Dr. Flesher to repair it with a solution that looks natural and provides long-term durability. Minor tooth damage can be fixed with simple dental bonding, which includes a quick application of a tooth-colored composite resin. A more substantial tooth fracture may require a dental crown or root canal if the inner structures of the tooth have become infected.
It is important to also remember that a cracked tooth may not be visible to the naked eye. However, if you feel sensitivity or pain when biting down on a tooth, you should make an appointment to see us as soon as possible. Neglecting to treat damaged teeth can lead to worsening pain and more costly treatments.
At Royal Oak Family Dental, we understand that your dental needs are not always predictable. If sudden tooth damage occurs, turn to Oklahoma City’s most trusted dental team for repair. From the moment you walk through our doors, we will work hard to earn your trust and help you feel at ease. Contact our office today to schedule your broken tooth restoration and get your smile back.
