Let’s face it, cracked teeth aren’t much fun. In the best case scenario they’re unsightly, especially if they’re in your smile line and in the worst case, they can be extremely painful. In the latter instance, the first thing you should do is to visit an emergency dental clinic in Manchester where they can access the situation and get you out of pain. But what if, you have a slight noticeable blemish or crack, how should you approach your cracked teeth treatment? This is where porcelain veneers can help.
As far as cosmetic dental treatments go, porcelain veneers (otherwise known as ‘dental veneers’ or simply, ‘veneers’ are one of the most popular. They are in fact very thin, shell-like layers of dental porcelain which sit over the tooth to hide it. Treatment is quick and minimally invasive and at the end of it, you’re left with a whiter, brighter, unblemished smile. That’s all well and good, but how does the process work for cracked teeth?
First of all your teeth are inspected and cleaned to ensure no infection is present and of course, we’ll also discuss with you our options for repairing it. Don’t worry though, because cracked teeth treatment using veneers is a well-versed treatment that delivers great results.
Next a mould will be taken of your tooth, so that your permanent veneer can be made. In the meantime a temporary veneer will be fitted. During this period, your problematic cracked teeth will need to be prepared and that means shaving a fraction of a millimetre or so of enamel of the tooth surface. This is so that the veneer sits perfectly flush with the rest of your smile and blends in perfectly. At the end of the session, you’ll be given a temporary veneer to wear until your permanent veneer is ready. Do note that the temp won’t be as thin as your permanent veneer so it may feel a little awkward at first but the idea is to protect the tooth from day one. Besides, it gives you a chance to ‘try before you buy’ and at this point, any adjustments can be made so your permanent fittings, will be absolutely correct.
When you get the call, usually about two weeks later, you’ll return to our practice and we’ll carefully remove the temporary veneer and cover over the cracked teeth or tooth with the permanent version. Once stuck in place, we’ll shape and polish it to blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
The results – if we say so ourselves – are so lifelike that no-one need ever know that you’ve had cracked teeth treatment 🙂
If you have cracked teeth and want to do something about it, then contact our emergency dental clinic in Manchester and ask us about porcelain veneers. To find out more book a consultation by calling us on 0161 485 7376 today.
Most children look forward to losing their baby teeth and receiving a visit from the tooth fairy. However, when they lose a tooth through trauma or injury, it can leave parents in a state of uncertainty. After all, baby teeth are meant to fall out, right? but without a visit to an emergency dental clinic in Manchester are there likely to be problems later on? What, if any, knocked out tooth treatment is required for baby teeth?
Baby tooth loss is extremely common and we’re always receiving calls from worried parents in this
situation, unsure as to whether or not the loss of a baby tooth qualifies as a dental emergency in Manchester. While in most cases there is no need to panic we recommend that you bring your child to the dentist straight away.
In many cases losing a baby tooth is no big deal especially if your child is nearing the age where his or her permanent teeth should be making an appearance. However, in some cases a knocked out baby tooth may require a little more attention. The good news is that because baby teeth are not as deeply rooted as primary teeth, there’s less risk of permanent damage. That said, it’s always advisable for your child to visit an emergency dental clinic in Manchester as soon as possible.
Once you’ve comforted your child try and locate the missing baby tooth. You wouldn’t want to risk your child choking on it and also your dentist might want to take a look at it. You should never attempt to place a baby tooth back in its socket since there’s a chance that you could damage the permanent tooth that’s sitting beneath it.
What happens in the long term usually depends on the age of your child and the location of the lost tooth. It may be that X-rays will be taken to ascertain whether or not the underlying permanent tooth has suffered any damage. In addition, your dentist may recommend a spacer to ensure that the permanent tooth has room to grow into. If front teeth are involved your dentist may even suggest pediatric partials (replacement teeth) for pre-schoolers, which can be removed once permanent teeth start to come in. Otherwise, a visit from the tooth fairy is likely to be brought forward for an older child.
Losing baby teeth can be alarming and confusing both for adults and children. Often parents don’t know what to do when a tooth is lost earlier than expected. We always advise that you keep calm and ring your emergency dental clinic in Manchester for advice. Knocked out tooth treatment has many variables depending on your child’s age and the severity of the injury, but as in the case of
any dental emergency in Manchester, the best approach for long-term dental health is to visit your dentist right away.

An abscess occurs when a tooth is infected and can form very quickly. You may notice a painful swelling that’s filled with pus. It’s your body’s way of trying to contain the infection and stop it from spreading further. Symptoms include a severe toothache, fever, and facial swelling. An abscess won’t go away unless it’s treated, so don’t ignore the symptoms. With abscesses generally being quite painful, most people do seek treatment straight away.
If you have an accident in which your tooth is knocked out, it’s important to immediately visit our emergency dental clinic. Manchester patients may then be able to have the tooth successfully re-implanted into the socket, but only if you act quickly. For the best chance of saving your tooth, keep it in a glass of milk until you see our Manchester emergency dentist.
A dislodged tooth is when a tooth is loosened, pushed into or sideways from its socket usually as a result of an injury or accident. When this happens it’s important to immediately visit our Manchester emergency dentist because, with the right care, the tooth can be re-implanted and repaired.
Generally, having a tooth extraction has little to no complications. Sometimes though, after having a tooth removed, a dry socket can take place within 3 days of the extraction if the blood clot falls out of the socket too early and leaves the bone exposed. Symptoms include severe pain, earache, and a bad taste in the mouth.
Despite the strength of tooth enamel, teeth can sometimes fracture when biting down on something hard or as a result of an accident. Symptoms include a sharp pain when eating or biting down and sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. If you have a cracked tooth that’s causing pain, it’s best to visit our emergency dentist in Manchester so that we can help stop the crack spreading any further down the root. This ensures the best chance possible of saving the tooth.
