Teeth can break because of weak bone structure caused by genetics or ill health, tooth decay, teeth grinding or because of injury. Broken teeth not only cause discomfort and a loss of confidence, but also impact on dental and overall health. When a tooth breaks it should never be left untreated.
Common health impacts of broken teeth may include infection, further loss of teeth and gums, periodontal disease, teeth misalignment, improper bite and jaw irregularities. These dental conditions can cause other illnesses, such as migraines and increased blood pressure, which can then lead to heart disease and strokes.
Seeking medical attention immediately for a broken tooth is crucial to overall health and well-being. In the UK, dentists are available through NHS Choices and private and cosmetic practices in Ealing. A number of treatments exist to fix your broken tooth and improve appearance, which clean and prevent infection, remove discomfort, correct alignment and bite and give you confidence when smiling.
Treatment solutions for broken teeth include porcelain crowns, bridges and veneers.
Crowns are moulded out of porcelain to the specifications of your tooth and permanently attach to the surface of your treated broken tooth. Porcelain crowns serve as a replacement tooth, which provides stability to your facial structure and restores your smile.
A dental bridge is formed out of porcelain according to the shape and structure of your teeth and mouth, in order to fill spaces between teeth and act as a replacement for broken or missing teeth. Bridges are designed to correct improper tooth bite and give you a set of healthy-looking teeth.
Cosmetic bonding, usually with composite resin, is used to restore broken, chipped, discoloured and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers, such as Lumineers or Da Vinci veneers, are a more durable option to treat broken or unsightly stained teeth.
Sparkle Dental Boutique offers all these treatments and can fix your broken tooth or teeth within one visit.
