Question DetailsAsked on 9/17/2019

Can a fixed dental bridge have a broken off tooth glued /cemented back in situ?

Two top front teeth, one snapped cleanly off. I have got the tooth.

Yes. There are generally 2 options:

1.) Recement the bridge with a very strong cement (C&B Metabond)

2.) Remove the tooth remaining in the bridge, possibly treat the broken tooth with root canal, fit a post into the tooth under and within the bridge, apply spacer in the bridge, add filling material to the broken tooth within the bridge, and recement the bridge.

These procedures require a dentist with some experience and with the right materials for the job. This is not a job for a "corporate" practice full of inexperienced dentists.
