Can a broken tooth be glued back together by a dentist?

In brief: Probably not

If your tooth is broken, it needs to be restored, not patched back together with the broken piece.
Unless of course you are referring to a chipped front tooth with no cavities... In many instances, the chipped piece can be bonded back on and the results are superb.

In brief: No

You can not just glue it back. Your tooth need to be fixed.

In brief: Sometimes

The chipped off part of a front tooth can sometimes be bonded back to the tooth.
You should be sure to follow-up with your dentist for several months following any traumatic event to assess the health of the tooth nerve. Sometimes a traumatized tooth can die and root canal is needed.

In brief: Definitely, no

See a dentist for evaluation, diagnosis, x-rays and treatment options.
If you are in pain from a broken tooth, you may want to take an NSAID or Tylenol (acetaminophen) OTC for pain relieve.
