How Can My Chipped or Cracked Tooth Be Repaired?

A cracked or chipped tooth needs to be treated to prevent further serious problems developing. Your dentist can discuss the repair options available to restore your teeth and smile.

Key takeaways:

  • Dental crowns provide a permanent restoration for teeth with more severe cracks.
  • Dental bonding builds a tooth back up, helping protect the tooth from further damage.
  • Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells which offer protection while also enhancing the appearance of a tooth when fitted.

“A dental crown is a porcelain ceramic replica of your natural tooth that’s placed over the tooth. This is a permanent restoration that will look indistinguishable from your natural teeth.”
