My tooth is broken. Can it be fixed with just a filling?
Sometimes Yes and sometimes No. If the broken portion of the tooth is small and there is minimal decay in it then it can usually be repaired with a simple filling. But if the broken portion is medium to large in size with deeper decay then a filling is insufficient to repair the tooth. A crown is usually needed to properly fix the tooth to restore full function. If you need a Dentist in Tampa give us a call and let us help you out.
