Addressing Your Damaged Teeth
If you experience sudden pain, bleeding, objects caught between teeth, or a chipped tooth, then rinse your mouth with warm water and take a pain reliever. A bit of cloth, cotton, or gauze could be used to stem the bleeding, and placing a cold compress against your face may reduce swelling. We can often repair minor damage in one visit with dental bonding, and for more serious issues, create and place a custom-made restoration, such as a strong and durable dental crown. Remember, seeing us quickly means lowering your risk of serious complications, and ensuring you continue to enjoy a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile!
What can you do to prevent injury? Well, first try to avoid chewing on hard objects, such as pens, pencils, or ice, as this could chip or crack a tooth. When you play sports, be sure to wear a mouthguard to protect the teeth and limit the chances of injury.
