Repairs to Damaged Teeth
The first step towards successfully restoring your cracked tooth is to evaluate the severity of your damage, as this will help Dr. Schwarz determine which procedure is best for you. Dental bonding is most frequently used for tooth damage that is minor or only includes chipping of your enamel. Bonding is a simple, cost-effective and quick procedure that can leave your cracked tooth unnoticeable. Dr. Schwarz uses tooth-colored composite resin to discreetly bond the damaged areas of your tooth back to its original shape and strength.
For tooth damage that requires more extensive repair, a dental crown or porcelain veneer may be recommended. Dr. Schwarz carries distinguished skill in both these procedures, with the ability to restore the visible portions of your smile with the highest level of aesthetics and durability. Although we can ensure your smile looks its best after tooth damage, we never lose focus on the health of your smile. If your tooth damage has penetrated to the pulp (center) of your tooth, a root canal may be needed first to alleviate your pain and prevent infection.
