Ways a dentist can repair and restore broken teeth

You should see a dentist as soon as possible if you break a tooth. At Harley Street Dental Clinic our team of dental professionals offers a number of different ways in which to restore and repair your broken teeth, with results that are both functional and aesthetically appealing.

This is particularly important if your broken tooth is causing you pain, but under any circumstances you should book an appointment as soon as possible. This is because even the smallest cracks and chips in the teeth can be enough to allow bacteria into the pulp at the centre of a tooth, causing infection and requiring endodontic or root canal treatment.

Tooth replacement options at Harley Street Dental Clinic

The team at Harley Street Dental Clinic have a range of options to repair broken or damaged teeth. When you first come for a consultation with a dentist, they will assess the nature of the damage and will recommend an appropriate solution.

Here are some of the treatments your dentist may recommend:


A dentist can use a crown to give strength and aesthetic appeal back to a broken or weakened tooth. Crowns may be made from a range of materials, including precious metals, porcelain, and ceramic. They produce results that look natural and are very strong and durable.

White fillings and composite bonding

White filling material can be used by your dentist to restore a broken tooth. Composite bonding involves using this material to restore your tooth; the colour of material is closely matched to the natural colour of your teeth.


Porcelain veneers can be used to cover chips and cracks on the front teeth, offering additional strength as well as aesthetic appeal.
