If you have broken a tooth, you need to treat the situation like a dental emergency. However, there is no need to panic. Keep a cool head and manage the situation as much as possible. The first thing you should do is call our office and schedule an appointment with our dentists, Dr. Macon Sapp and Dr. Baxter Sapp. Our dental team will tell you what you should do next. When you come into our office, there are many treatments we can use to help you, so there is no need to worry. Two treatments are:
-Dental veneers (Dental veneers are thin shells that cover the front surfaces of the teeth and hide their imperfections. In this case, your dentist will cement the shell over your tooth to make it look like it was never broken!)
-Dental crowns (Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are also customized for you. They look just like your natural teeth and they are made to replace the enamel. When a crown is cemented over the tooth, you can have the whole, functional, and beautiful tooth you need.)
