Your teeth are covered in a hard material called Enamel.

The enamel protects the underlying tooth structures called the dentine and the pulp (which has your nerves and blood vessels).

Elleven Dental

About This Condition

A broken tooth can range from a faint crack to one that’s very broken, bleeds and exposes the nerves.

Teeth can break due to a variety of reasons:

  • Trauma/injury to the mouth or face
  • Large fillings that has worn away or dislodged
  • Tooth which has been root filled can become brittle and break/crack with pressure whilst eating
  • A tooth with a large cavity can easily break

If you have injured your front tooth and it has either fractured away or the whole tooth has come out then please preserve this in some milk. Do not clean it and contact the general dentist ASAP.

Treatment plans, devised by your dentist, may suggest any one of a range of treatments, including, depending on the severity of the condition, including:

  • A filling
  • Dental bonding
  • Filling or polishing
  • Root canal treatment
  • Extraction

An appointment with your dentist will enable a thorough examination to assess the damage and determine the best course of action, making any necessary referrals.

“Never before have I actually looked forward to the dentist, however, elleven Dental provide such a calming, relaxed and professional environment and service, every visit is a true pleasure, which ends with brilliant results.”
