Crown Fractures

A crown fracture occurs when the visible part of the tooth or crown, is chipped, cracked, or broken. This can be caused by various reasons- biting down on hard objects, a fall, or trauma to the mouth. A crown fracture is a dental emergency and should be addressed immediately by a dentist to prevent further damage and possible infection.
