Trauma: I got a knock on a front tooth, and there's a sliver of a crack that I can see - and it's a bit tender.
Do these things ever heal? Will I definitely have to get some sort of work done? What are my options? ... Visitor from WA
Tooth enamel doesn't regenerate.
Treatment options can be defined by the dentist who evaluates the impact for trauma to the dentin,
tooth roots and jawbone.
Recommended treatments might include possible bonding, porcelain veneer, crown or extraction
with replacement via a standard bridge, maryland bridge or dental implant and crown.
