Cracked Tooth Repair

Dental Fracture Care in Frisco

A tooth fracture sounds serious, like a broken bone. In many ways, broken teeth are a lot like bone fractures—they require immediate attention by a healthcare professional, but with the right treatment, you can heal. However, teeth don’t repair themselves the way bones do, so you need a little extra TLC for a cracked tooth. That’s why our doors in Frisco, TX, are always open, even for same-day appointments. Hunt Family Dentistry offers warm smiles and personalized dental care for unexpected moments.

Understanding Cracked Teeth

Cracked teeth can result from various causes. Some common culprits are biting into something hard, sports or accidents, teeth grinding (bruxism), and natural wear and tear. The good news is that many cracks can be prevented with the right care and precautions. When they do happen, they are also very treatable. In fact, our dentist in Frisco offers several possible solutions to cracked teeth, meaning treatment is tailored directly to you and your needs.

Range of Treatments Tailored to Your Needs

Our gentle touch and cutting-edge technology mean efficient and effective repair. For any path to cracked tooth repair, we offer amenities like Comfort-in™ injection-free numbing and sedation dentistry. This is in line with our dedication to providing personalized care and making sure you feel comfortable throughout the process. Our possible repairs include:

  • Tooth Fillings: Our composite fillings can mend minor cracks and fractures, sealing them from bacteria. 
  • Dental Bonding: For small cracks, bonding can be a quick and straightforward solution. Using a tooth-colored resin, we can fill the crack to restore appearance and strength.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Another fix for chips and small cracks, these thin, porcelain shells fit over your teeth to cover any imperfections. 
  • Dental Crowns: For more severe cracks, a crown may be necessary to protect and strengthen the tooth. Our customized crowns are designed to fit seamlessly with your natural teeth and provide long-lasting durability.
  • Tooth Extractions: In severe cases where a crack is deep or long, or it’s gotten infected or decayed, we may need to remove it. Don’t worry, our tooth removal is gentle!

Preventing
Future Cracks

Once your cracked tooth is repaired, we help you take steps to prevent future damage. Avoid using your teeth in lieu of scissors to open up bags. It’s also best to curb the instinct to chew on pens or ice. If you suffer from nighttime teeth grinding or clenching, we can provide you with a bruxism mouth guard custom-fitted to your teeth. We can also catch chips and cracks early with cleanings and checkups, so we can schedule you in advance. By taking these precautions, you can help prevent future cracks and maintain a beautiful smile.
