A cracked or chipped tooth can be bothersome, especially when it catches on your tongue or is painful. Moreover, compromised tooth structure can allow bacteria to get inside the tooth, become infected and cause even worse pain and problems. Cracked, chipped or broken teeth should never be ignored. They not only take away from your smile, but they could also seriously impact your oral health. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Downriver Smiles, we offer cracked, chipped and broken tooth repair in Spokane, WA.

Teeth are hard by design because of their purpose – they break down the food we eat for easier digestion. This hard exterior covering, called enamel, is the hardest substance in the body, even harder than ordinary bone. However, it can still become damaged by impact. Biting down on a popcorn kernel or other hard object can damage a tooth. A blow to the mouth while playing sports can cause a crack or chip a tooth.

Downriver Smiles in Spokane offers painless repairs for broken or chipped teeth. Most repairs are simple when the issue is caught early. It is only when patients ignore cracked or broken teeth for a while that things become complicated. Once decay sets in, your tooth will become much more painful, making it difficult to eat, sleep, speak or do most anything else.

Repairs to Cracked or Broken Teeth

Our dentists are experienced dentist who can easily and quickly repair cracked or broken teeth. At Downriver Smiles, we offer custom dental bonding that is color-matched to your natural teeth for a discreet repair. The repair material is made from ceramics and plastics and is shaped and honed into place before being hardened by a special light. It is durable and lasting, even on back teeth.

Some more severe cases may require a dental crown to cover and protect the broken tooth. Our dentists takes a mold of your tooth shape and the crown is created in a dental lab. When it is ready, he will bond it to the damaged tooth. Dental crowns can also be color-matched so your repair is invisible.

Dr. Gaunt is the best! This is the first dentist that I have had a good experience with. I had a root canal done and was so nervous, they made me comfortable and had it done within an hour. I would definitely recommend Downriver smiles!

I had the worst dental anxiety before going to Dr. Gaunt years ago- to the point I let my teeth go until they were breaking, in need of numerous fillings, root canals, and extractions. Dr. Gaunt was by far the best dentist I have ever had; he explained everything in as much detail as I required, made me comfortable with any procedure and has won my and my family's business throughout the years with his excellent care and demeanor. Dr. Gaunt and all his wonderful staff are a joy to work with and I can guarantee our continued visits in the years to come for any work my family requires. Thank you Downriver Smiles staff!

The employees at Shadle Smiles are so friendly and make sure you understand your procedures and cost before work is done. Dr Harding was my dentist and listened to my concerns about work to be done. He only does what work really needs to be done and what can wait. Love this place!

  • Best dentist in Spokane! Don’t look any further! I chipped my front tooth and they got me in the next day! Left with a beautiful smile and my wallet still intact! I wasn’t an existing patient, but I am now! Awesome environment and extremely friendly staff! 10/10 hands down would recommend!
