How We Can Treat Your Cracked, Chipped, and Broken Teeth

Posted By: Highgrove Dental Care

If you break a tooth, you’ve typically got a dental emergency on your hands. Unless you’re dealing with a very minor chip that you can’t even notice, you need to deal with your tooth injury right away to prevent the damage from spreading. 

Broken, chipped, and cracked tooth dental emergencies are never enjoyable, but the good news is that our Saint Paul dentists can usually repair your tooth and get you feeling better in no time. 

Treatments for Injured Teeth

Depending on how severe your chip, break, or crack is, we may take several different approaches to treat your tooth.

When you visit us for emergency dentistry in Saint Paul, we’ll start by evaluating the damaged area to see how extensive the damage is. Sometimes, you can see how severe your tooth injury is by looking at it, while other times, only a dental x-ray can reveal the true extent of the trauma. 

In almost every case, we can save a damaged tooth and avoid extraction. We will recommend a tooth extraction only as a last resort and if it’s the best choice for your oral health. 

As a Saint Paul emergency dentist, we rely on the following treatments to help save damaged teeth:

  • Fillings
  • Crowns for teeth
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Root canals 

If the cosmetic damage to your tooth is severe, we may also recommend a porcelain veneer or a tooth crown to cover the affected area. Our goal is to have your smile looking and feeling great once your dental emergency is over, and the long-term health of the tooth is significant to us. 

Get Your Tooth the Help it Needs

If you’re in pain or feeling anxious about your broken tooth, you can get immediate relief by calling our Saint Paint dentists at (651) 427-3118. We will see you right away and provide emergency dentistry treatment so you can go back to feeling like yourself. 

When you crack, break, or chip a tooth, don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
