We have many options for restorative dentistry in Katoomba, NSW. Your dentist will gauge the severity of your chip or tooth fracture and make the best determination on ways to restore it.
For minor chips, your dentist may talk to you about dental bonding. This is a fast and easy way to conceal the chip without invasive treatment. Bonding is made from tooth-coloured filling material, which we spread across the chip. Your dentist then shapes it to blend in and sets it with a special light.
For more significant tooth cracks and fractures, your dentist may recommend a dental crown. The crown is a tooth-shaped cap cemented over the damaged tooth. It fits to the gumline and restores your bite force while protecting the tooth underneath. Your dental crown is custom crafted to look like your untreated teeth, down to the colour!
If you have a severe break below the gum line, we typically recommend a complete extraction followed by tooth replacement. We offer various tooth replacements, including dental implants.
