Let Dr. Howard Lim – your Toronto Dentist – fix your cracked teeth to make sure that they are strong and healthy from the inside, out.
Are You Aware That You Have a Cracked Tooth?
Depending on how bad it is, you may or may not realize that your tooth is cracked. If you don’t realize it, it could eventually grow worse until there’s no longer any doubt. Unfortunately, by then, your tooth may be in serious trouble, not just from the damage, but also from potential infection after its interior’s been exposed to bacteria. To fix a cracked tooth, then, Dr. Howard Lim will have to make sure that the tooth is strong and healthy from the inside, out.
A cracked tooth may occur when you chew on hard foods, may be caused by an accident or may be caused by grinding your teeth. Cracks are often shallow and don’t cause any problems. You may not even realize that you have a cracked tooth.
The best treatment approach is to attempt to detect and treat a crack as early as possible. If your tooth is only slightly cracked, then it may only need a cosmetic fix, like dental bonding or a porcelain veneer. A deeper crack extending into the pulp may require a root canal treatment and the tooth covered with a permanent, protective crown.
Tooth cracks are sometimes not visible making it challenging for Dr. Howard Lim to diagnose the problem. Discomfort from biting pressures could mean the tooth is cracked but it could also be the result of other things. If you feel pain when you bite down on things, it is recommended you see Toronto Dentist, Dr. Howard Lim. He will be able to run tests to help determine the source of the tooth pain.
