Our teeth are able to withstand the friction and pressure created while we bite and chew food thanks to the strength of our enamel. Unfortunately, while teeth are naturally durable, many people will still experience at least one dental injury in their life. If your tooth is chipped, cracked, or broken after an accident, your Virginia Beach dentist can help. Through the appropriate restorative dental work, we can keep an injured tooth safe from infection, and also make sure you can once again bite and chew without discomfort. In many cases, a broken tooth can be successfully restored with a dental crown that preserves the appearance of your natural smile! (more…)
