Occasionally this can lead to pain in however, often times they can be asymptomatic as well. Often we can easily diagnose the issue by a visual exam and an xray.

There are different dental restoration options that are available for a cracked or chipped tooth. The one that will apply best for any given situation varies greatly depending on the severity of the tooth damage.
