What We Can Do About A Cracked Tooth

Our teeth may be tough enough to hold up against years of friction from biting and chewing, but they can be vulnerable to damage. When your enamel is cracked, you can be alarmed by the appearance of your tooth. You should also be concerned about the effect that this will have on your oral health, as this kind of trauma can make you vulnerable to more harm to the structure as well as an infection! At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can provide the appropriate care so that the problem no longer affects your appearance or well-being. Because we use technology that provides same-day dental crowns, we can offer support for potentially serious issues in less time than you expect!

Dental Injuries Create Serious Potential Smile Problems

When you suffer a tooth injury, you should worry about your oral health in addition to your appearance. The problems you can face include a potential infection, more structural harm, and trouble with your bite function. Waiting on treatment can make you more likely to experience more difficulties. The sooner you say something, the sooner our practice can take care to provide your appropriate support. When the injury is severe, you can require restorative treatment, but some injuries can be addressed through cosmetic treatments that require fewer permanent changes to your enamel.

Restoring A Cracked Tooth With A Same-Day Crown

For dental injuries, our practice can supply a crown produced with CEREC technology. What makes this different for you is that your restoration can be ready in just one visit, which removes the need for a follow-up appointment and reliance on a temporary crown. We have everything that we need to evaluate your tooth and capture the measurements for your restoration. Once the crown is digitally designed, we can produce it in an in-office milling machine, then secure it so that you have permanent protection. The appliance you receive can match the color and texture of healthy enamel in order to preserve your smile.

Can I Address A Dental Injury With Cosmetic Treatment?

If the harm to your enamel is not serious enough to require restorative treatment, we can explore the option of restoring your smile with a porcelain veneer. With this option, we can preserve more of your healthy enamel while still making sure your damage is covered and your tooth is protected!
