After treatment for a cracked tooth, will my tooth completely heal?

Treatment for your cracked tooth is important because it will relieve pain and reduce the likelihood that the crack will worsen. Once treated, most cracked teeth will continue to function and provide years of comfortable chewing.

However, it is important to realise that unlike a broken bone, the fracture in a cracked tooth will not heal. In spite of treatment, some cracks may continue to progress and separate, resulting in the loss of tooth.
