Broken Teeth

Broken Teeth are a sign that you are grinding or rubbing your teeth together in your sleep.  You may not be aware of it until your crowns, fillings, or teeth chip. 

Grinding damage is occurring to the teeth if they are worn.  Look at the pictures below of how the teeth are not straight at the edges.  See the cosmetic shortening of the teeth.  See how Gary, Peter and Paula made their teeth better.


Also a lack of proper bite perpetuates further accelerated wear and symptoms such as tooth sensitivity, gum recession, broken teeth and chipping teeth.

“I had broken teeth. I was absolutely delighted with the quality of treatment recieved from Dr Singh.  I had extensive work done on my teeth over the last 2 years.  Dr Singh explains the 4 treatment options available and gave the right advice in a clear manner, following up with a full explanation of cost.


Heavily worn teeth and bite were made to look much better with Porcelain Crowns.

Our teeth are really strong, but with the many stresses and strains that they have to endure, they can chip, crack or break.  

Common cause of these breaks can include:

  • Eating something hard
  • Facial trauma following an accident
  • Damage from sports
  • Untreated cavities can cause a tooth to become brittle and break
  • Old, large amalgam fillings, where the remaining structure of the natural tooth can become brittle over a period of time

“My broken teeth were worn and I did not have the best smile.  I wanted them straighter and also to feel more confident when smiling.  I was grinding my teeth more to my right side Dr Singh told me.  This why my right canine was worn so much.  Dr Singh went throught the 4 different options thoroughly. 


My look has improved some much.  I trust him to look after my teeth from now and keep visiting him since he has improved the robustness of my teeth.


Broken teeth may not necessarily cause immediate pain. If the break has travelled to the nerve, you might experience occasional discomfort when chewing, for example, or sensitivity to hot and cold. Whether you are in pain or not, all breaks should be investigated by your Eternal Smiles dentist as soon as possible in order to check the health and satiability of the tooth, and to provide necessary treatment to prevent further deterioration or problems.

“My smile was not right. and i had been comtemplating a better look for a while. Dr Singh told me I had worn my teeth due to grinding in my sleep. 


Eternal Smiles is a wonderful place from being greeted by the most warm reception staff to Dr Singh himself.  I was very nervous upon arriving for my first consultation.  He explained to me all the 4 choices thoroughly and clearly.  He is very attentive. I had veneers, implant and crowns.


I had a full explaination of costs and treatment plan.  I have a wonderful smile..  You have improved the feel and look of my teeth.  A BIG thank you.” 



What to do if you break your tooth.

If you’ve fractured or broken a tooth, follow these steps immediately before booking an appointment with your Portman dentist.

  • Rinse your mouth out with warm water
  • Apply pressure on any bleeding areas using gauze or a wet teabag
  • Apply an icepack to your cheek if there’s any swelling
  • If you have access to it, cover any major cracks with temporary dental cement
  • If it’s painful, use an over the counter pain reliever such as paracetamol (unless your GP has advised otherwise)
  • Cover any broken teeth with milk, saliva or saline solution

If your tooth is broken, make sure you don’t brush it, and make an appointment to see your dentist as soon as possible. Your Eternal Smiles dentist will discuss with you the best method of repairing the break, which could be one or a combination of fillings, crowns and root canal treatments.
