If you have any broken-off pieces, place them in clean water – we may be able to use them to help repair the tooth.
If the damage is bad, we may need to see you straight away, but for a minor break with no pain a scheduled appointment will be fine. Certainly if you are in pain after breaking a tooth then please call to request an appointment straight away.
If you have a small chip we can often repair this with a small white filling or bonding this simply rebuilds your broken tooth and is often done without the need for any injections.
We see many people with chipped or broken teeth at our practice, so please do call us or request an appointment online now as we’re sure to be able to help.
