Maybe you slipped and hit yourself on the pavement once, or maybe you did something you shouldn’t have been doing, such as boxing without a mouth guard or pulling a nail out of the wall with your teeth; whatever it is you did, a cracked tooth is more serious than a chip.
But don’t worry. Your teeth can possibly be restored in a range of different ways based on the extent of damage.
Hard candies, ice, citrus, coffee, dried fruit, potato chips, soda, alcohol, and sports drinks are the top nine items that can lead to cavities and tooth decay, which weaken your teeth, making them more likely to shatter while biting down on hard foods.
However, this is 2021 – which mean you no longer have to live with cracked teeth or with a reluctant smile.
The 5 pathways to fixing your cracked teeth
Chipped, cracked, decaying, discolored, malformed, and gapped teeth can be repaired by composite bonding. The composite used in bonding is hardened with UV radiation, and sculpted and polished to match the rest of your teeth, once cured. Composite bonding can have a ten-year lifespan.
Veneers are tooth-colored coverings. Porcelain veneers are used because they produce the most appealing and realistic results. Veneers can be applied to a single tooth or a group of teeth. And how you want your veneer to look is entirely up to you. For many people, this cosmetic therapy is an excellent choice. But Veneers may not be suggested for you if you grind your teeth too much, since teeth grinding will wear them down.
One of the most prevalent restorative procedures is crowns. A crown is a cap covering that protects the tooth while also improving its aesthetics as well. You may require a crown if your tooth is seriously damaged or you experience discomfort when eating or drinking. It protects your teeth by acting as a strong barrier since a damaged tooth probably won’t sustain chewing pressure without a crown.
A root canal can be used to treat a tooth that has developed a break that has reached the pulp. A crown can be inserted following the root canal to prevent the fracture from further widening. A root canal includes extracting the nerve and cleaning out damaged materials to prevent any infection that could spread to other teeth. If left untreated, it could ultimately lead to an abscess, bone loss, or other severe complications.
If you have a crack in your tooth that extends past the gum line, it is no longer savable and will need to be extracted, which entails the removal of your tooth. Then, to replace your natural tooth, you can have a dental implant.
