Chipped Tooth Repair, Marietta

Chipped Tooth Repair

A chipped, broken or cracked tooth is reason for concern. Even if it does not cause pain, it can leave your tooth exposed and vulnerable to decay or infection without general dental care. At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we can quickly and painlessly repair damaged teeth to protect them from further problems. If your broken tooth is causing you pain, call us for an emergency dental appointment for prompt care.

Did you know that tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body? This protective layer over your teeth can withstand hundreds of pounds of pressure when you chew. However, trauma can break through this enamel, causing a chip on the tooth or a crack to form. Once the enamel is compromised, the underlying pulp and nerves of the tooth are left exposed. This can lead to decay, infection or even a loss of the tooth if not repaired.

Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth

When a tooth is damaged, our experienced dental team can almost always restore it to health. Chips can be fixed with fillings or dental bonding, protecting the inner canals of the tooth and restoring the shape of the exterior. Deeper damage like cracks or broken teeth may need more extensive repairs. We can use inlays or onlays for targeted damage to the top or one side of the tooth. For larger structural damage, a dental crown can be used to protect the tooth and restore it to health.

It is important not to delay treatment if you have a damaged tooth. The longer you wait, the more likely you could have decay or infection reach the inner canals of the tooth. Once the inner nerves become infected, root canal therapy may be needed to save the tooth. Quick tooth repairs can prevent larger, more expensive procedures, saving you time and discomfort. Contact us right away to schedule an appointment if you chip, crack or break a tooth.

I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!
