Today’s emergency fractured front teeth quick fixes.
The first two patients I saw today chipped the same front right central incisor biting into a chicken bone. The third one chipped her lower right incisor biting into a sandwich. The last patient grinds his teeth and fractured the edge off his upper left central incisor. I restored each these teeth in about a half hour, for each one, with bonded ceramic composite restorations. Here are the before and after photos taken 30 minutes apart.
This patient was playing hockey and his left front tooth was fractured by a hockey stick. I restored the tooth in 20 minutes with a ceramic composite bonded restoration. Looks great and he’s happy to get his great smile back.
This next patient fractured the her front tooth biting into a hard piece of bread. I quickly repaired this tooth too.
This patient chipped his lower tooth when he bit down hard and the tooth fractured against the upper incisor. This was a quick and easy repair.

The bottle banged into her front tooth fracturing off the edge. I repaired the tooth in 15 minutes with a composite bonded restoration.
This next patient chipped the middle corner of his upper left front tooth playing basketball. I repaired it easily with a bonded composite restoration.
