Can a Broken Tooth on a Denture Be Fixed?

Posted on 4/1/2024 by Weo Admin

At least natural teeth are even stronger because they have enamel. Dentures do not have the protection of enamel, making them prone to breaking or chipping. Sometimes, the breaking and chipping can break a single tooth on a denture.

What To Do When Your Dentures Break

You are bound to panic when you break a tooth on your dentures. However, you have nothing to worry about, especially in the modern day when we have access to several state-of-the-art dental resources. That said, quickly repairing a broken tooth on a denture is possible.

What You Should Do

The first thing you should do when you break a single tooth on your denture is to gather the broken parts of the tooth and keep them in a container. Take the broken pieces to a general dentist after making an appointment. Prior notice will prepare your dentist for your arrival, and they will work on repairing the broken tooth immediately.

Repairing a broken tooth on a denture is less expensive when the broken pieces are in a safe place. However, if you do not locate the fractured tooth, repairing your denture might cost more. Still, your dentist will take measurements for the new tooth, which will then be shaped and color-matched with the other teeth in the denture. The only downside is that it will take time, and you will not enjoy the benefits of having your broken tooth repaired on the same day.

Closing Remarks

You can repair a broken tooth on a denture in a single day, so you do not have to panic when you accidentally break one of the teeth in your denture. However, there are a few things you should not do. Do not lose the broken pieces, as it will take longer to repair the fractured tooth and cost you more. Just pick the broken pieces immediately and put them in a container. Contact us today to learn how to protect your denture teeth from breaking.
