Teeth can break for a number of reasons ranging from poor health, hereditary reasons or from accidents that cause the teeth to break. Broken teeth not only effect dental function i.e. biting and chewing but can also affect confidence and ability to smile freely.
The advice from your London dentists and cosmetic dentists in Kensington is to never leave your broken tooth as it is. Treating a broken tooth is very important in order to avoid further dental problems, such as tooth loss, infection, poor long term tooth prognosis, periodontal disease also known as gum disease, misaligned teeth and jaw pain.
Your cosmetic dentist in Kensington can advise you of how to repair broken teeth. There are usually several options depending on which tooth is broken and how damaged it is. These include using a porcelain veneer or crown or a bridge or in some cases a dental implant may be suggested if the tooth is very badly broken.
A porcelain veneer can be thought of as custom made facias that are placed over the front surface of a tooth to correct broken teeth as well as for cosmetic purposes to change the shape, length and colour of teeth. Porcelain crowns are similar but cover the whole tooth providing a natural result and overall strength and protection to a weakened or broken tooth. These are all treatment options available by your cosmetic dentist in London, Dr Sehmi at The Kensington Clinic. Call to book a free consultation for broken teeth. 0207 603 3008
