Okay so you, your child, your mom, your brother, etc. etc. just fell face first into something, over something, under something, etc. etc. and broke the corner of your/their front tooth off.
What do you do now?
Well, that depends. Lets break this down into 3 simplified categories.
The nerve of a tooth is in the middle of the tooth.
#1 If you just broke off a small corner of the tooth and it didn't reach the nerve then a simple filling is probably all you would need.
#2 If you broke off a larger corner but still didn't reach the nerve then you more then likely would need a crown.
#3 If you broke your tooth so severely that you got down into the nerve then you will need a root canal AND a crown.
And although all of this may be a traumatic experience don't worry. Your cracked and broken smile can be completely repaired and have you back to being the model you know you were born to be.
