Chipped or broken teeth can happen in a split second. Whether you've had a sports injury or realized something went horribly wrong while chewing ice or hard candy. No matter how you broke your tooth, it can feel scary to realize you've chipped your tooth. There's no reason to worry; however, we can repair your smile to its original beauty. 

At Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we're no strangers to cracked or fractured teeth. Dr. Liz and Dr. Tommy Gladnick are highly skilled and experienced in broken tooth repair. Using restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to fix broken teeth, we can ensure that you never have to live with unattractive and flawed teeth. 

Repairing Broken Teeth in Rockville

Depending on the severity of your break, you may be a candidate for one or multiple different dental procedures. Your Rockville dentist will be able to determine which dental procedure is a good option, and we will explain how the procedure works. 

Dental Bonding—This is a popular treatment for light cracks, chips, decay, tooth stains, gapped, and misshapen teeth. We use composite resin for filling cavities can also be used to shape teeth and improve your smile. Although the resin is not as strong as natural enamel, it can last up to 10 years with good care. This non-invasive dental procedure does not typically require anesthesia since the tooth does not have to be reshaped. The tooth-colored resin is shaded to match your smile, so it blends in naturally. 

Porcelain veneers—Veneers cover the front surface of a tooth, which allows them to hide any number of tooth flaws. Your dentist bonds the porcelain veneer to the tooth, a procedure that may be minimally invasive since we need to alter some of the tooth's surface. As long as patients stay firmly away from hard candy, ice, or volatile sports—they stand a good chance for enjoying their veneers for 15 to 20 years. If you grind your teeth, you may not find this dental investment to be a good fit. Your veneer is shaped and shaded to look precisely like it's neighboring teeth, so no one will ever be able to notice that you have a dental prosthetic.

Dental crowns—For severely damaged or weakened teeth, we may recommend a dental crown. Dental crowns cap your entire tooth, allowing it to protect and stabilize your tooth and prevent further damage. This durable, protective covering will enable patients to chew and eat food like normal without fear of cracking their prosthetic. Each dental crown is custom fabricated to match each patient's unique dental needs and smile.
