If you have ever experienced a trauma resulting in the breakage of the edge of the tooth fragment and luckily you have managed to save the fragment then you can bring it to the clinic immediately. The dentist will bond it with the crown. This can be done by composite a filling material. 

Composite Bonding

One of the most Common broken tooth treatment in Dubai is attaching a small amount of composite to the broken edge. Composite restoration treatment is not as easy as it sounds. It requires a complete series of steps. The dentist will first file off the edge to be bonded to make a smooth surface. A 30% phosphoric acid is used as an acid etchant. The acid allows adhesion of the composite filling with the tooth. It is then washed and dried and another bonding agent more like a gel is applied onto the surface and is then wiped off. The composite filling material is then gently placed over the surface and is shaped according to the anatomy of the tooth.

Dental Veneers 

Dental Veneers are another better option for the repair of a Broken tooth.  Dental veneers are a plastic like film/coating that are placed onto the surface for filling up the spaces, hiding broken edges, pitting and concealing imperfections. The treatment procedure involves cleaning the surface and making it free of any plaque.  Next, the impression is taken for the formation of dental veneers. Once the impression is ready the veneers are fabricated according to the dimensions of the teeth and gently placed over the culprit tooth. A light emitting device is used to cure the area in case of composite veneers. 

Crown Placement

If the extent of the damage is greater and has involved the pulp that is responsible for the pain perception then a root canal treatment is done over the tooth and is then devitalized. The Root canal is always completed after the Crown placement and so the tooth will then receive a Crown placement to hide the broken fragment or damage.  It is a very complex procedure and you need to approach the best dental clinic in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in order to get  this treatment done like in our Dynamic Clinic.
