Results of Broken Tooth Bonding
Many of the therapies we provide are not purely cosmetic in nature. Often times we are principally concerned with restoring function. It may be as simple as restoring someones bite to a more healthful position, OR, as in Brett’s situation, fixing a traumatic injury. Brett presented in our office after getting his face in the way of a baseball, resulting in a traumatic fracture of his left front tooth. In cases such as this, if we have the fragment and can get it to position properly, we are able to very conservatively repair the fracture through bonding. These repairs are very durable and predictable and most times eliminate the need for more invasive therapies. The long term prognosis for this tooth is excellent!
