Do you have a cracked tooth? If so, our dentist, Dr. Vinh T. Pham, would like to help you. It’s important to get it treated right away so the crack doesn’t get bigger and compromise the entire health of the tooth. Fortunately, there are many treatments available that can help you treat your cracked tooth. Those treatments are:

-Dental bonding: Dental bonding is a simple and painless treatment that involves your dentist roughening up the tooth’s surface. Then, he will cover the tooth with a special dental resin and will shape it. Finally, he will harden it.

-Dental veneers: A dental veneer is a wafer-thin shell that is made in a dental lab. Once it is created and sent to our office and once your dentist trims a section of your tooth enamel, the veneer will be placed over the tooth to hide the imperfections and keep the crack from spreading.

-Dental crowns: A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that can replace your tooth enamel. After it is made and sent to our office and after your dentist shaves the enamel, the crown will cover the tooth and keep it in tip-top shape.
