Why choose us for Rohnert Park cracked tooth repair
Healthy teeth are strong and durable, but they are not indestructible. Cracks or chips to a tooth can happen as the result of injury, stress on the tooth, or dental decay.

Benefits of Cracked Tooth Repair
Problems From Cracked Teeth
The result of those problems? You will avoid anything hot or cold, sticking to room-temperature items. No more ice cream or ice-cold glasses of water on a hot day. No more hot coffee in the morning or hot chocolate on a cold winter evening.
Your teeth are also weaker when they are cracked. If you don’t take care of it right away, bacteria can make their way into the crack. This worsens the damage.
In severe cases, cracked teeth can lead to an infection. If this spreads to the gums and bone, it can become serious. An infection can lead to all of the above symptoms. It can also cause bad breath and tenderness in your neck glands. Infections can require antibiotics.
In the case of visible cracked teeth, you may also have aesthetic concerns. Patients commonly lose confidence in their smile when a crack is visible.

What is cracked tooth repair?
No matter the cause of the crack in your teeth or the type of crack, our experience allows us to complete the repairs quickly and correctly. From cracks that reach the gumline to split teeth to fractured cusps by fillings, we help with it all.
The method for a cracked tooth repair depends on your overall mouth health and the type of crack. With bonding, we fill the crack using plastic resin. A veneer can make front teeth look whole. Dr. Eddie Kuo may fit a crown over the cracked tooth. You may need a root canal to remove a sensitive and damaged pulp. In some cases, we may have to remove your tooth.
Remember, cracked teeth are much easier to fix at an early stage. If you leave them untreated, your mouth can experience further damage.

How is a cracked tooth repaired?
The method used to repair a cracked tooth depends on the severity and location of the crack. Some common treatments for cracked teeth include:
- Dental bonding: A tooth-colored resin is applied to the crack and hardened with a special light, which helps to hold the tooth together and prevent further damage.
- Veneers: A thin layer of porcelain or composite material is placed over the front surface of the tooth to cover the crack and improve the tooth’s appearance.
- Dental crowns: A custom-made cap is placed over the entire tooth, protecting it from further damage and restoring its function.
- Root canal treatment: If the crack extends into the tooth’s pulp, a root canal may be needed to remove the damaged tissue and prevent infection.
- Tooth extraction: In severe cases, where the crack extends below the gum line or the tooth is severely damaged, it may be necessary to remove the tooth.
How much does it cost to repair a cracked tooth?
The cost of repairing a cracked tooth depends on the type of treatment required and where you live. Dental bonding can cost between $100 and $400 per tooth, while veneers can cost between $900 and $2,500 per tooth. Dental crowns typically cost between $500 and $3,000 per tooth, and root canal treatment can range from $500 to $2,000. Tooth extraction can cost between $75 and $650, depending on the complexity of the extraction. Many dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of these treatments, so be sure to check with your insurance provider and dentist to find out how much your treatment will cost.
