Create the smile you're looking for with a composite filling, crown, bridge, or implant.
For a chipped tooth, a tooth-colored composite filling works really well, even on a front tooth. You won't even notice the difference!
A crown is a great solution for a tooth that may have a very large cavity, is broken, or has a large existing filing that is bothering you. Crowns can be used like veneers to create a beautiful, strong, and long-lasting smile.
A bridge can be used as an alternative to placing an implant and in some cases can be less expensive. It can also be a great option if the teeth adjacent to your broken or missing tooth are in need of a crown.
Dental implants can be an ideal way to give you the smile you want. Implants do not decay like natural teeth; helping them last a very long time. Implants are great, long-lasting restorations for missing teeth.
When on vacation, I chipped my front tooth and it looked really bad. I wanted to make sure I got the best dentist to make the repair. After doing research and making calls, I found that Dr. Lindgren was the best dentist to make this repair and I could not be happier with the end result. The repair has a perfect color match and I often forget I even chipped my tooth.
Why should I fix my broken tooth?
If you have a broken tooth, crowns can be used like a veneer to create a beautiful, strong, and long lasting result. It has never been a better time to have a crown done because of how strong the tooth-colored ceramic materials have become. If you have a tooth that needs a crown, doing it now as opposed to waiting can save you money. By being proactive, you can often avoid a root canal, or even loss of a tooth by doing the crown before it becomes a bigger problem.
What if my tooth can't be saved or is already lost?
If a tooth cannot be saved and must be removed or is already lost, the two best ways to replace the missing tooth is to use an implant or bridge. Implants can last a very long time and are not prone to decay. Bridges make sense especially when the adjacent teeth need crowns anyway or if there is not adequate bone for an implant. Both implants and bridges are a great way to replace a missing tooth.
