Have you taken a spill or suffered a blow to the face and broken a tooth? If so, it’s best to stay calm and call our office. Schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Nils Sandstrom, as soon as you can. When you come into our office, bring the pieces of the tooth if possible so we can try to put the tooth back together. If that is not an option, our dentist can use one of the following treatments to help you:

-Dental veneers (Dental veneers are shells that are very thin and made just for you. Dental lab technicians will craft your veneer and will send it to our clinic. When you and your tooth are ready, your dentist will cement it over the front surface of the tooth and your tooth will be complete!)

-Dental crowns (Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that replace the tooth enamel. A crown can be made for you and placed over your tooth. No one will even know you had a broken tooth because the crown will be whole and look completely natural.)

Call Nils F. Sandstrom, DDS today at 708-388-2500 if you have any questions or if you would like to know more. Our dental team will be happy to tell you all about how to treat broken teeth in Palos Heights, Illinois. We look forward to hearing from and helping you!
