What causes cracked and broken teeth?

Teeth can become cracked or broken for many reasons, including untreated decay, trauma and personal habits, like chewing on ice or persistent tooth grinding or clenching. Once the tooth structure is compromised, if it isn't properly treated, the tooth is much more likely to become badly decayed or infected, or even fall out.

How are broken and cracked teeth treated?

That depends on the extent of the damage. Some teeth may be treated with crowns or onlays, while teeth that are badly broken and damaged may require extraction and replacement with a dental implant or bridge. Pearl Dental uses the most advanced, conservative methods of treatment for restorations that are durable and patient-friendly.

What is CariVu?

CariVu is a special diagnostic imaging device that uses proprietary transillumination methods to see the interior structure of your tooth, enabling a thorough and accurate examination and evaluation of cracks, breaks and other types of damage without the need for the ionizing radiation of traditional dental x-rays. The device uses highly-focused light to enable dentists to evaluate teeth prior to treatment for superior results and long-lasting restorations.

What is CEREC?

CEREC stands for chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, and it's a system that's used to create comfortable, durable, natural-looking restorations while you're in the dentist chair, without the need to send impressions to an outside lab. That means patients can get the restorations they need in a single visit, without having to have wait days or even weeks for their crowns or porcelain onlays to be fabricated. Plus, because the restorations are crafted while you're in the office, they can be better customized for a truly superior fit so you experience the greatest comfort and most natural look possible. And of course, because restorations are completed on site, CEREC restorations can also be much less costly.
