Cracked Teeth

Cracked Teeth- PHC Dental Care of Miami Florida

Cracked teeth can be a painful and concerning dental issue, requiring timely treatment to prevent further damage and restore oral health. The appropriate treatment for a cracked tooth depends on the severity, location, and extent of the crack. Here are some common treatments offered by Premium Healthcare Dental Center Miami for cracked teeth:

  • Dental Bonding: This treatment is suitable for minor cracks. A tooth-colored resin material is applied to the cracked tooth and shaped to restore its natural appearance and function.
  • Dental Crowns: For more extensive cracks, a dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers the cracked tooth, providing protection and restoring its strength and appearance.
  • Root Canal Therapy: If a crack extends into the pulp of the tooth, it can cause severe pain and increase the risk of infection. In such cases, a root canal may be performed to remove the damaged pulp and seal the tooth to prevent further complications.
  • Dental Veneers: Cracks that primarily affect the front teeth can often be treated with dental veneers. These thin shells, made of porcelain or composite resin, are bonded to the front surface of the tooth to conceal the crack and enhance aesthetics.
  • Dental Implants: In cases where a crack is irreparable and the tooth cannot be saved, extraction may be necessary. A dental implant can then be placed to replace the missing tooth, providing a durable and natural-looking solution.
  • Tooth Extraction: In severe cases where the crack extends below the gum line or causes significant pain and damage, the tooth may need to be extracted to prevent infection and protect the surrounding teeth.

If you suspect a cracked tooth, contact one of our dental professionals immediately for an evaluation and diagnosis. Early intervention can help preserve the tooth and prevent further complications.


A cracked tooth can result from various factors, such as biting into hard objects, teeth grinding (bruxism), traumatic injuries, or large fillings weakening the tooth structure.

Common signs of a cracked tooth include sharp pain while biting or chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, intermittent pain when releasing biting pressure, and difficulty locating the source of the discomfort.

Unfortunately, a cracked tooth will not heal on its own. Cracks tend to worsen over time, leading to more significant problems if left untreated.

The treatment for a cracked tooth depends on the extent of the damage. It may involve dental bonding, a dental crown, root canal therapy, or tooth extraction in severe cases.

While some accidents are unavoidable, you can reduce the risk of cracked teeth by wearing a mouthguard during sports activities, avoiding biting hard objects, and addressing teeth grinding with a nightguard.

A cracked tooth can be considered an emergency, especially if it causes severe pain or exposes the dental pulp. Seek immediate dental attention to prevent further damage or infection.
