|When a tooth is cracked, a filling
may not seal the crack. A crown
may have to be placed over the tooth to hold it and the
crack together. If the crack is not restored, the tooth
will become sensitive to
chewing pressure, or will eventually break. It is important
to restore a cracked tooth before it breaks, because
in some cases a broken tooth
cannot be filled or crowned and must be extracted.
