When you have a broken tooth, you need to fix it — fast. It may be painful. It may affect your confidence. And time is not on your side.
The longer you wait to fix a broken tooth, the greater your risk of additional damage. Unfortunately, more damage can add complications and eliminate some of your treatment options. Because Dr. Harris is a firm believer in actively managing your dental health, we will always see you when you have a problem like a broken tooth.
When your tooth is broken, you may have several options to repair it, including:
Crowns cover and protect your tooth, and restore its strength and shape. A crown covers your entire tooth. The look, feel, and fit will be completely customized just for you. We take great pride in crowns that are virtually undetectable by anyone else. In fact, we check and re-check your bite to ensure your crown will also be undetectable by you.
Sometimes it’s not necessary to cover the entire tooth to repair damage. Inlays and onlays, which are typically made of gold or porcelain, offer the same strength and stability benefits as a crown while preserving the healthy parts of your tooth.
Think of a veneer as a thin shell that’s custom-made to cover the surface of your tooth. A veneer can change your tooth’s color, shape, size, texture, or length. It’s bonded to your tooth with cement, so you can eat and drink as you regularly would. Best of all, it looks so natural no one will know it’s not your “real” tooth.
We’ll always help you choose the solution that’s right for you.
Our #1 goal is to make sure your teeth are comfortable, functional, and don’t cause you pain. And about that confidence? A healthy mouth is always something to smile about.
It was great, like I have been going to Dr. Sharon Freeland Harris for the past 10 years. The entire staff is great!
