Treatment for a cracked tooth will vary based on your dentist's evaluation and the extent of the damage. A very small crack may only require smoothing or simple bonding. Your dentist can perform this repair easily in one office visit. More extensive treatment for a larger cracked tooth can involve a crown or root canal. These procedures to cover the tooth (crown) or clean out the inside of the tooth (root canal) may take several office visits over several weeks or months.
