Cracked Tooth Repair
We offer cracked tooth repair with conservative methods to preserve your long-term oral health.
Biomimetic Dentistry for Cracked Teeth
Our doctors harness the benefits of biomimetic dentistry to provide longer-lasting solutions for cracked teeth. Biomimetic is defined as mimicking biology or life. It draws from nature to create superior designs and treatments, including those for damaged teeth.
Biomimetic dentistry centers around the tooth’s strength and structure, with the goal of restoring the tooth as closely as possible to its natural condition. This approach provides greater longevity in crack teeth repairs.
Conservative Cracked Teeth Treatment
Our team provides partial crowns (also known as overlays) to restore cracked teeth. Conventional crowns are simply caps placed over a retentive post, which is a shaved-down portion of the damaged tooth. Partial crowns preserve far more of the natural tooth by using a flat base, held in place by adhesives.
Modern Adhesives For Long-Lasting Restorations
We use the widely revered Ribbond Reinforcement, which significantly increases the longevity and resilience of cracked teeth restorations. Ribbond Reinforcement is a layer of Kelvar fibers that bolster the tooth while preventing future cracks from forming or worsening. It also dissipates the stresses exerted on the tooth with chewing and other day-to-day motions, reducing the risk of damage.
Our method is centered around the proven concept that the enamel acts as a compression dome, protecting against stresses that can damage the tooth and lead to cracks. In reinforcing the enamel, modern adhesives prevent worsening cracks while allowing us to retain as much of the patient’s natural tooth as possible.
