Broken Teeth

Coronavirus COVID-19

 

Following the Prime Minister’s recent announcement, you will be pleased to know, we will remain open!

There are no restrictions with regards to medical /dental treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments.

Just to reiterate when you arrive at the Practice:

·      We advise that you always wear a mask while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

·      Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

·      As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfect your hands.

In the meantime, please stay safe and contact us if you have any questions

NHS appointments are in very high demand and we may be unable to offer appointments for non urgent treatment and waiting times for NHS treatments may be several weeks.

A natural-coloured filling material can be used for minor repairs to front teeth like chipped or broken tooth corners.

Alternatively a veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth with a thicker section replacing the broken part.

Crowns may be necessary when larger proportions of teeth are broken that cannot be repaired by bonding a natural colour ‘composite’ material or by means of porcelain veneers.
