What might cause a Cracked or Missing Tooth?
There are several factors that can contribute to a cracked or missing tooth. Some of these include:
- Trauma has occurred and either cracked a tooth or knocked it out completely
- Decay has loosened a tooth and caused it to fall out
- A tooth has cracked because of a large filling or pressure being put onto the tooth
What can be done to restore your smile?
A full examination and series of x-rays is needed to determine the cause of the problem as well as to help with restoration efforts. Some of the most common ways to restore a cracked or missing smile include fillings, crowns, bridge work and implants.
