Sometimes it can be difficult to know if you have a cracked tooth however there are common symptoms that may indicate that you do which include:
Pain when chewing
Sensitivity to hot or cold foods
There are multiple treatment options available and include:
If the crack is very minor and not damaging the inside of the tooth then veneers may be a good option for you. An ultra-thin porcelain veneer is placed over the crack which treats the symptoms and prevents the crack from becoming worse.
Root Canal Therapy
If the inside of the tooth has been damaged then a root canal treatment may be the best option as this treats the damage to the inside of the tooth and the filling prevents further damage.
If your tooth is badly damaged or wont hold a filling, then a crown may be used to reinforce your tooth and protect it.
If your tooth is so damaged that it has to be extracted, a dental implant is a great option to replace the missing tooth as this is the only treatment that replaces the whole tooth down to the root.
