Yes, in most cases a broken front tooth can often be saved with the right treatment, it all depends on the extent of the damage to the tooth. If the tooth is only chipped or slightly cracked, the dentist may be able to repair it by filing down the tooth and restoring it with a filling or bonding material. If the tooth is more severely damaged, the dentist may recommend a crown, which is a cap that fits over the tooth to protect it and restore its shape and function. In some cases, a broken front tooth may be too severely damaged to be saved, and the dentist may recommend extracting it and replacing it with a dental implant or bridge. It’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible if you have a broken front tooth, as this can help to prevent further damage and ensure the best possible outcome.
