Protecting your teeth from damage is not always possible, but restoring and repairing them is our specialty at Mercy Dental. When you have a cracked, chipped or broken tooth, come to us for a quick repair to restore your tooth to health. Dr. Doris Doleyres can fix most damaged teeth with general dentistry right at our office in Edinburg.
Even a small chip in a tooth can put your oral health at risk. Once the outside enamel is damaged, the softer, more vulnerable pulp inside your tooth can be exposed. Bacteria and decay can attack the pulp, causing damage to the tooth root. Chipped teeth can be quickly repaired at our office, using filling or dental bonding. This restores the tooth structure and prevents further damage to the tooth. We offer white or tooth-colored repairs so your chipped tooth will look like new again.
Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth
When more severe damage occurs to a tooth, it can weaken the structure and put your tooth in jeopardy. A cracked or broken tooth should be considered a dental emergency, even if it is not causing pain or sensitivity. There are a few different options to repair a damaged tooth, depending on the severity of the trauma. Small cracks can often be filled or strengthened with bonding. Inlays and onlays are an option for some repairs. For broken teeth or large cracks, it is often preferred to restore the tooth using a dental crown, protecting it from further damage from pressure or impact.
If you or a family member has a chipped, cracked or broken tooth, do not hesitate to contact our office in Edinburg for an urgent dental appointment. Quick repair can protect your tooth from further damage, decay or infection. Mercy Dental offers late appointments and we have emergency dental care available.
