Potential Causes Of Cracked Teeth:

  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Biting hard objects or foods
  • Trauma or accidents
  • Chewing on ice or non-food items
  • Uneven chewing pressure
  • Large, old fillings weakening tooth structure
  • Age-related wear and tear
  • Weakened enamel from acidic foods or beverages

Our Personalized Solutions For Cracked Teeth

At Sonrisas Dental Center, we understand that each patient’s situation is unique, and that’s why we offer personalized solutions tailored to your specific needs. Our experienced team utilizes advanced techniques and state-of-the-art technology to determine the severity of the crack and identify the least invasive and most effective treatment for cracked teeth.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a non-invasive and cost-effective solution for cracked teeth. It involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the affected tooth, which is then hardened using a special light. The bonding material blends with the natural tooth, effectively repairing minor chips and cracks. This is recommended for small cracks and can also address discolorations, gaps, and irregularities, restoring the tooth’s appearance and function with minimal enamel removal.

Dental Crown

A dental crown is a durable, custom-made cap that covers the entire cracked tooth, restoring its strength and appearance. The procedure involves preparing the tooth by removing damaged portions and shaping it to fit the crown. The crown is securely bonded to the tooth, providing protection and support. Dental crowns are recommended for more extensive cracks, fractures, or weakened teeth. They offer long-lasting results and preserve the natural tooth structure.

Root Canal

A root canal is a therapeutic procedure to save a severely cracked or infected tooth. The dentist removes the damaged pulp and nerve from the tooth’s interior, cleans, disinfects, and seals the root canal space. This prevents further infection and relieves pain. Root canals are recommended when cracks extend into the tooth’s inner tissues, causing intense pain or potential tooth loss. The procedure allows patients to retain their natural teeth.


Tooth extraction is a last resort solution for severely cracked teeth when other treatments are not viable. The procedure involves removing the damaged tooth from its socket. Local anesthesia is used to ensure comfort during the process. Tooth extraction is recommended when the crack is extensive, causing irreparable damage, or if there’s a risk of infection spreading to other teeth or gums. After extraction, options like dental implants or bridges can be considered to restore functionality.

Consequences Of Untreated Cracked Teeth:

  • Increased pain and sensitivity
  • Risk of infection and abscess
  • Further damage and deterioration
  • Difficulty in chewing and biting
  • Potential tooth loss
  • Expensive and extensive dental procedures
  • Impact on overall oral health
  • Aesthetic concerns affecting confidence
