Ankeny Dentist Restores Broken Teeth

What happens when you , Dr. Amanda Foust, provides an array of cosmetic and restorative procedures to renew your broken tooth.

Symptoms of a Damaged Tooth

How do you know if you have a broken tooth? Often, fractures and small chips can be practically invisible to the naked eye. The first symptoms of a damaged tooth typically include tooth sensitivity, toothaches, or a sharp pain when biting down or chewing. When you injure a tooth, you increase your risk of decay and infection. Cracks or chips in the outer tooth enamel allow bacteria to reach the inner layer of tooth structures. Soon, cavities develop and over time, your tooth can become infected or abscessed. If you break or crack a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Then see Dr. Foust right away.

Repairing Chipped or Cracked Teeth

At Dental Impressions, Dr. Foust provides our patients with the procedures necessary to restore your tooth. A few of the services offered by your Ankeny cosmetic dentist include:

  • Dental Bonding: Made of a special composite resin, bonding allows Dr. Foust to repair and reshape damaged teeth. In addition, the composite bonding material can be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile.
  • Crowns: A crown acts a cap that fits completely over the visible portion of a tooth. Crowns prevent your remaining tooth structure from further damage or infection.
