Tooth enamel is one of the strongest substances in nature, but certain accidents or bad oral health habits can make it weaker, leading to chips, cracks, and fractures.

Why Should Damaged Teeth Be Repaired As Soon As Possible?
As soon as you notice that one of your teeth is broken, chipped, cracked or damaged in some way, call us to make a tooth repair appointment at our London clinic as soon as possible.
Even if the damage might not appear extensive and you are not in severe pain, it’s important for a professional to assess the damage and provide the right treatment in due time.
- Immediate treatment reduces the risk of infection – which can occur if the nerve and blood vessels are exposed
- Damaged teeth can have sharp edges, which leads to gum irritation and discomfort
- Left untreated for long periods of time, damaged teeth can be lost, but if you seek treatment immediately, we will try to preserve the natural tooth as best as possible.
- Immediate treatment increases the risk of speedy recovery. Even in severe cases, a broken piece of a tooth can be reattached if you have an emergency appointment.
- Sometimes, tooth damage is not visible to the naked eye. Fractures can be as thin as a few millimetres and you may not know you have them, but, in time, the fracture can extend and cause bigger problems. At West House Dental, we pay attention to the early signs and symptoms of tooth damage and screen for them during every regular check-up, so that we can fix those tiny fissures before they become problematic.
- Living with a damaged tooth affects your confidence as well as your health, making you feel self-aware and uncomfortable.
