Here at Family Smiles Dental, one of the most common issues that patients seek treatment form our dentist in Burlington
for is the cracked tooth. Cracking a tooth can be scary and painful, and can lead to more serious complications if not treated immediately. If you crack a tooth, you should schedule an appointment with our dentist in Burlington as soon as possible. The reason for such immediate treatment is that if a cracked tooth is not addressed quickly, it can crack further, to the point where the original tooth may not be able to be preserved. In addition, a cracked tooth increases the risk of the pulp getting infected. The pulp is a conglomeration of soft tissue at the center of each of your teeth, and when the tooth is cracked the pulp can becomes exposed and therefore vulnerable to infection. These infections are painful and often require complex treatments to resolve.

If you visit our dentist in Burlington with a cracked tooth, we will first carefully examine the tooth in order to evaluate the extent of the damage, and then recommend treatment. In most cases, we will repair a cracked tooth with a dental crown. Dental crowns are fully customizable and are created in a laboratory using either porcelain baked onto a metal substrate, all-porcelain, or one of the many ceramic materials now available. Our dentist in Burlington
