Hello Fara dina, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The repair for a broken tooth depends on the severity of the fracture. In general, there are 5 ways to fix a broken tooth:
If the fracture is small, then a procedure called dental bonding can be performed, which is to fill or fill the broken tooth so that it returns to its normal tooth shape.
If the fracture occurs in the front tooth, a procedure called dental veneer can be performed, which is to provide a cover on the tooth (similar to a false nail) which is attached to the broken tooth.
If the fracture is large enough, a dental crown can be installed, which is a denture that is made to cover a damaged or broken tooth (this denture will cover the broken tooth like a cap).
If the fracture is large and there is also damage to the tooth pulp (the inner part of the tooth root), it will require root therapy first, followed by the installation of a dental crown.
If the broken tooth is so badly damaged that it cannot be repaired, then the damaged tooth can be extracted followed by the installation of dentures (dental implants). Permanent teeth that are removed will not grow back, so it is very important to install these dentures.
We recommend that you consult directly with the dentist to check the condition of your broken teeth. From this examination, you can decide on the most appropriate action to repair your broken tooth.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
