The good thing is that you don’t have to go so long with a chipped or broken tooth. Thanks to the emergency service at Instant Dental, you can come to our practice for an emergency tooth reparation to protect yourself from further damage or discomfort.
Depending on the extensiveness of the chip or breakage, different treatment options are available.
Small cracks and chips: smoothing the remaining structure and using composite bonding
Broken chewing surfaces: fillings or crown, inlays or onlays.
Large pieces of the surface have broken off: place the fragment in milk until your appointment, and the emergency dentist will attempt to reattach it
It is important to get your broken tooth fixed as soon as possible as the new nooks and crannies provide an entry point for harmful bacteria. If the bacteria can gain access within your tooth and reach the sensitive pulp, you may end up needing a root canal treatment. Contact our dental clinic on 01622 291 999 to prevent further damage and decay and to restore your smile.
