Bonding A Broken Front Tooth

Dental Emergency A broken front tooth

A common dental emergency is a chipped front tooth.  Teeth can crack, chip, or break for many reasons.  Some of the common causes are due to tooth trauma such as bruxism (teeth grinding,) biting on something hard, or trauma such as a hit or a fall.  Bonding can work well in some cases to repair a tooth.  When dental bonding does not work, a porcelain veneer or a crown is a more permanent solution for fixing a broken tooth.

Fractured front Tooth

Patient fractured his front tooth while eating by biting on a fork.  He also grinds his teeth at night which makes the enamel weaker.  We bonded his front tooth with a resin composite.  Patient will have to be careful while eating not to bite on his front tooth.  The cosmetic results were very good.

Chipped Front Tooth While Eating

Our patient chipped her front tooth while eating dinner.  We were able to repair her front tooth with a bit of bonding.  The results look amazing.

Fractured front tooth from teeth grinding

Patient broke his front tooth because he grinds his teeth at night.  He doesn’t use his Night Guard regularly.  We repaired his tooth with dental bonding.  He’ll have to be careful not to bite on anything too hard with it and use his night guard regularly for the dental bonding to last.
