Broken Teeth

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic we want to inform you that the practice will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020 until the end of April and possibly longer. During this period we  will be running an emergency telephone triage/advise service for any patient who may require this Monday to Friday. We kindly request that only patients needing emergency advise leave messages on our answerphone.

We wish all our patients well and hope you all stay safe and look forward to seeing you once this crisis is over.

Tips to help manage dental problems until you can see a dentist:

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.
