We provide same day treatments for dental concerns just like this, ensuring patients never have to suffer from disruptive tooth pain or unbearable sensitivity longer than they have to.
At Brentwood Dental Group, we carry the expertise to treat all types of cracked teeth, including those caused from the following:

Repairs to Damaged Teeth
To determine your specific treatment plan for cracked tooth repair, one of our skilled dentists will first assess the severity of the damage. Most minor tooth cracks can be repaired with dental bonding, a quick procedure that uses tooth-colored composite resin to fill in the crack or chip. However, if the damage reached the tooth pulp, it may be necessary to have a root canal and a crown or filling to properly restore your tooth. Regardless of what your smile needs, you can trust that we will use top quality and durable materials and the latest dental techniques when repairing your tooth. We use a variety of cutting-edge equipment to keep procedures comfortable and fast. In fact, our in-house dental lab allows us to expedite dental restorations if your cracked tooth repair involves a crown.
If you see a visible crack on your tooth or you are experiencing pain when chewing or from extreme temperatures, you need to be seen. Please contact our office promptly if you suspect you have tooth damage. We reserve time in our schedules each day to treat dental emergencies. Whether your child cracked a tooth on the playground or you bit down on a bone during your lunch meeting, we have a team of reputable and caring dentists who are equipped to help you in St. Louis.
