It is possible for a filling or part of the tooth to break off. A cracked tooth can be filled with several different materials.
A piece can break off a tooth as the result of an accident, for example. If this happens, you should urgently contact a dentist. A small piece coming off the crown of a tooth does not always require immediate repair, so the treatment can be postponed to the following day.
A cracked tooth can usually be repaired at a single dentist’s appointment. At the appointment, the cracked tooth is usually honed and filled.
Make an appointment when a filling or piece of the tooth has cracked off.
In filling a crack, it is possible to use various materials ranging from plastic to natural-looking ceramics. Ask your dentist for more information about the materials!
