Broken Teeth Treatments
There are many treatments available for broken teeth. The treatment used will generally be determined by examining the damage of the breaks. Dental bonding is a good option for minor breaks; bonding involves molding the outer area of broken teeth with a putty like material. Dental caps will be suggested if the breaks are major or severe. Metal capping and plastic capping can be chosen by the patient. If the breaks are extremely serious, then the only treatment available is the tooth extraction.
In dental bonding, only a small portion of the tooth is removed to fill the adhesive where the putty like substance is going to be attached. The procedure is only designed for minor breaks; however, sometimes, minor breaks looks really odd and can harm the tooth. You can get dental bonding done in a single visit to your dentist, as it is really a small procedure. There are no complications associated with dental bonding. Therefore, this is the first and very much initial treatment for broken teeth.
