2 Things To Do When You’ve Cracked Your Tooth

Do you have a damaged or cracked tooth? Restore your smile’s functionality and appearance through one of these two options.



Function: Crowns completely ‘cap’ or cover a damaged tooth. They are versatile; providing protection to your tooth is only one function of a crown. It can also improve tooth shape, alignment, and appearance. If you have an implant, a crown may be placed on top to give it a more tooth-like function and look.

Look: Crowns can be matched to the color and shape of your tooth. If you are getting a crown for a molar, you may not need to match your natural tooth color. For front teeth, you will absolutely be able to restore your natural smile using a crown.


Did your cracked tooth just become a missing tooth? Do you have multiple missing teeth? A bridge may be your solution!

Function: Generally, dentists cement a bridge to the surrounding teeth or implants. Then, she inserts a replacement tooth, attached to both the bridge and surrounding teeth or implants.

Look: As with crowns, we expertly craft our bridges out of a variety of materials, depending on the function of the tooth and aesthetic needs. If necessary, we can create porcelain and ceramic bridges to match your natural tooth color.
