Broken Front Tooth Repair
from Holladay’s Expert – Dr. Rasch
Depending on the severity of the break, fracture, or chip, the repair and the cost may vary. Dr. Rasch will perform a process called “bonding” on the damaged tooth. He typically performs the following:
- Applying a numbing agent to the tooth
- Etch the surface of the tooth to make sure the bonding material will set properly
- Attach a tooth-colored composite resin to the damaged tooth which has been already shaped to match your teeth.
- Use ultraviolet light to speed up the setting of the adhesive between the resin and the broken tooth
Dr. Rasch may recommend the use of a dental cap or crown (as a temporary fix and after more tests such as dental x-rays are done – a permanent tooth attachment may be done specifically for molars.

Broken Tooth Extraction
May Be Necessary for Extreme Cases
Removing a broken tooth may be recommended in cases where the breakage occurs on a large portion of the crown or if the tooth broke right below the gum line. This will make the remaining tooth very challenging to repair. If the tooth is too damaged, then a broken tooth extraction must be done. Additional extraction procedures may include removing gum tissue, removing bone tissue or cutting the tooth into parts.
