One of the most painful and troublesome problems that people can have with their teeth is a cracked tooth.

How We Treat Cracked Teeth
When you come into the office with a tooth that is cracked, the first step that we will perform is to give your tooth a thorough examination. The degree of damage to the tooth will determine what kind of treatment is needed. A standard procedure for a cracked tooth is to place a crown on the tooth.
When a crown is placed on a tooth, it stabilizes the tooth and keeps the crack from becoming worse. In addition, the crown will cover up the damage to keep pain from occurring when the sensitive dentin inside the teeth is exposed. The crown works well as a treatment for a cracked tooth because it manages to fix all the issues a cracked tooth causes in one effective treatment.
