Cracked teeth usually hurt more upon the release of your bite than from the pressure of biting itself. Don’t be alarmed just because your tooth may be sensitive. Not all sensitivity comes from a cracked tooth, and not all cracked teeth are causes for concern. Tiny cracks are often encountered, and usually do not require any dental treatment. Other times, bonding, onlays, veneers and crowns may be necessary to restore a cracked tooth. A tooth that is found to be severely cracked may require root canal therapy or even an extraction. Schedule an appointment with Grand Parkway Smiles Dentistry so that together we can diagnose the origin of your discomfort, and determine which treatment modality will best serve your condition.
