Dental fractures and large chips in tooth enamel can be the result of a variety of oral traumas. The location, size, and severity of the damage to the tooth enamel will determine the treatment plan that our dentist, Dr. Brent A. Spear will recommend. Other factors may include the current condition of the tooth as well as any previous dental work done to it.
Small chips and minor dental fractures that have affected an otherwise healthy tooth might be repaired with a simple dental filling. At our dental practice, we offer both composite and amalgam fillings for our patients needing minor tooth repair.
A more significant fracture might require a dental crown restoration. If the trauma to the tooth extends deeper than the enamel layer to the internal pulp of the tooth, Dr. Spear will likely need to perform a root canal. This will restore sufficient structural integrity to accommodate a dental crown to effectively restore your tooth to its full function and appearance.
