Cracking or fracturing a tooth is a fairly common dental issue. A crack can occur when biting something too hard, as a result of grinding or clenching your teeth, or after experiencing trauma to the tooth. 

In some cases, a cracked tooth can be repaired, but there are instances when the crack is too severe to fix. In these cases, the cracked tooth will need to be extracted. Once the damaged tooth has been removed, there are several options such an implant or a dental bridge that can be used to restore the appearance of the patient’s smile.
