Broken Teeth

We can repair broken teeth in four different ways, depending on where the tooth is located and the extent of the damage. After a clinical assessment, we will be able to advise you which will be the most appropriate treatment.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are fixed to the front surface of the teeth with a thicker part used to replace the broken section.

Bonding

Natural looking composite bonding can be used as an alternative to veneers for minor repairs to front teeth. Composite fillings are a great looking alternative to amalgam fillings, as they blend in with your teeth. They also keep the remaining tooth structure intact, which protects it from further breakage and extremes of temperature.

Crowns

A crown can cover up and protect a broken tooth, or one that has been weakened by damage or decay, and they are used when a filling will not be enough to repair the tooth. Crowns can be made from strong, tooth-coloured porcelain and will mimic the shape and size of your natural tooth.

Inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays are restorations made from porcelain or plastic resin that are usually placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. An inlay is fitted within the tooth, and an onlay covers the entire top surface of the tooth. The procedure involves removing any decay or existing fillings, preparing the cavity and taking an impression so a customised inlay or onlay can be produced.
