Broken Tooth Crown

Broken Tooth CrownIf you have a broken tooth crown then it is essential that you seek dental treatment immediately. Typically, crowns can last anywhere from five to fifteen years, however, sometimes they can break or fall out before this time, depending on the circumstances. When this happens a dentist will need to either fix or replace the crown quickly to avoid any damage occurring to the natural tooth underneath.

Broken tooth crown

Dental crowns are usually fitted to protect your tooth, so when one breaks the exposed tooth underneath can be very vulnerable. If the crown has chipped then it may be possible to repair it. If the chip is not too large then, depending on what type of crown you have, a dentist may use a tooth coloured resin to fix the damage. However, if a crown is damaged beyond repair then a new one will be fitted to strengthen and restore the structure of the tooth.

How to help maintain your crown

  1. Avoid hard foodstuffs, as this is one of the main causes of a crown breaking. Hard foods put pressure on the restoration and can weaken its structure.
  2. Teeth grinding can damage or weaken crowns. If you think this may be an issue for you then speak to your dentist for preventative measures, strategies, and treatment.
  3. Maintain a good dental hygiene and care routine. This consists of daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.
