A broken or cracked tooth may seem minor at first, but if left untreated, matters may escalate. A broken tooth is a serious problem that causes hesitation to talk, laugh or smile in public and requires time at the dentist to rebuild the mouth as well as confidence. A general dentist will be the first to tell you that a broken tooth will not repair itself like a broken bone. The only way to restore the former appearance of a broken cracked or dislodged tooth is with a dental restoration or tooth contouring.
