Young Woman Covering Mouth due to Cracked Tooth Alpharetta, GA

While your teeth are strong enough to last a lifetime, it doesn’t mean that they are exempt from damage. Just like other parts of your body, your teeth can suffer injury or break under certain pressures. For most patients, however, cracking a permanent tooth is a frightening experience.  A cracked or broken tooth can threaten your smile’s appearance as well as make it uncomfortable to chew and speak. Even if your cracked tooth is not bothering you, it is important to get it repaired. Any time the enamel (outer protective layer) of a tooth is compromised, it can open the door for bacteria invasion, cavities and infection.

Most Front Tooth Damage is Repairable

If you suffered a bad fall or relied on your teeth to open a bottle, you may be left with a cracked or chipped front tooth. Don’t worry; most types of damage to the front teeth can be repaired. In fact, not only can it be fixed, but others won’t even know you’ve suffered the dental mishap.

Depending on the size of the damage, front teeth can be repaired in one of three ways:

    • Bonding – a tooth colored composite resin material is simply applied to replace the missing tooth structures. Bonding is for minor cracks and chips, but it looks completely natural and doesn’t require an anesthetic or lengthy appointment.
    • Veneers – a porcelain shell that is meant to cover the front surface of the tooth. As long as your tooth is in good health, this is an ideal aesthetic fix for more substantial front tooth damage.
    • Crowns – a dental “cap” that covers the entire tooth. A solution for more severe damage or when the tooth may also have undergone a root canal to eliminate infection.

At Crabapple Dental, we don’t want patients to worry or stress when they’ve cracked a front tooth. While it is never ideal, the situation can nearly always be fixed when handled in a timely manner. For times in which the tooth was severely compromised or the roots are damaged, an extraction may be necessary. However, rest assured that we also offer dental implants and life-like porcelain crowns to help you regain a beautiful and seamless smile.

Call today to schedule an appointment with Alpharetta’s finest dentists. We specialize in general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry – everything you need to for excellent results in cracked tooth repair.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
