You’ve broken a tooth through an accident or other means; don’t worry, there are numerous things you can do to revitalize your smile and essentially fix the damages. From crowns to root canals and veneers, there’s an option in store – let’s figure out what you need to deal with your broken tooth in New Hyde Park.
If You’ve Just Broken Your Tooth
If you’ve broken your tooth moments ago and you’re reading this, stop: emergency room dentists may be able to use a high-quality resin to reattach your natural tooth back into place.
Assessing Your Options
If there’s no way to repair your broken tooth, there are a few options to explore. If your nerves were not damaged during the injury or incident that caused fracturing of your teeth, you’re in luck. There are multiple options available for you to explore.
After additional shaving and shaping of your current tooth, ensuring to leave your nerves intact, porcelain dental crowns essentially “cap” your teeth to not only restore your smile, but to protect your natural tooth. Durable and long-lasting, crowns can be a permanent solution to a broken tooth. They require the same care and attention to detail as your natural teeth.
Veneers can last 10-15 years (depending on your diet and maintenance, they can last a lifetime). These wafer-thin porcelain segments are applied to your teeth with a high-quality resin to essentially become part of your teeth. Proper care and maintenance ensures that these will last you as long as your natural teeth, and make that cracked tooth look brand new.
