Cracked Teeth

Can Get Bigger or Can Join to Cause Bigger Problems

  • Can cause pain on biting
  • Teeth can split in half and need removal
  • Best to strengthen teeth before they break

Cracks in teeth can be present in people who have a heavy bite, those who have old silver fillings or those who grind their teeth.

Like any crack – these can get bigger or can join to cause bigger problems with your teeth such as parts breaking off or the whole tooth splitting and needing removal.

Typically you may get some pain on biting if the crack is getting larger. Early treatment can prevent cracks from spreading and reduce the risk of teeth breaking or being lost.

This may involve large white fillings to cover the cracks or a more long term solution can be onlays or crowns made of porcelain.
