Can a front tooth be repaired?

In most cases, yes! Whether the damage is caused by beverages that have stained the teeth or injury to the tooth, most teeth can be repaired. A chipped tooth is often repaired with porcelain veneers or composite resin bonding, while a lost tooth may be addressed with a bridge or a dental implant. There are many ways to address problem teeth with cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions.

What options are available?

The following treatment options may be used for repairing the front tooth:
  • Porcelain veneers – veneers are often chosen because they are ceramic facings made to bond over the front of the teeth to disguise problems with the anterior teeth. They are strong, durable, and long-lasting.
  • Composite resin bonding – composite resin bonding may be used on a chipped tooth to reshape the tooth to camouflage the issue. However, this needs to be replaced regularly and is not as resistant to staining as veneers are.
  • Dental crown – in some instances, a dentist may use a dental crown, or “cap,” to cover a natural tooth and provide repair.
  • Dental implants – when teeth are missing or extracted, they can be replaced using dental implants, which are titanium posts placed into the jawbone and restored with crowns or bridges.
  • Bridges – bridges are ceramic restoration made with false teeth and crowns to replace missing teeth.
