Repairing Fractured Front Teeth

Many patients, especially children, have accidents that may break the front teeth. The patient whose teeth are shown below had a bicycle accident that broke off half of a front tooth. The nerve of the tooth was exposed. Many times when this happens a procedure called a root canal is done to remove the nerve from the inside of the tooth if it is irreparably damaged. In this case fortunately the nerve was able to recover and a root canal was not necessary. A bonded composite restoration was done in one visit adding back tooth that was missing while removing little or no additional tooth. Below are the before and after treatment pictures.










Minimally invasive adhesive techniques allow teeth to look their best while minimizing loss of tooth.
