Cracked Dental Crown? Carrollton, GA

A dental crown is the most popular restorative treatment when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a dental filling but not compromised enough to warrant a dental extraction. A crown serves as a “cap” for the affected tooth, covering all visible sides and restoring its integrity, appearance and strength.

While modern porcelain crowns offer remarkable durability, and some last up to 15 years or more. However, crowns are still subject to damage and premature wear. When your dental crown is cracked or chipped, you can trust Dr. Tejal Kakade in Carrollton for prompt repair. If you consume a lot of crunchy foods and/or grind your teeth, you are at greater risk for a cracked crown dental emergency.

When a crown chips, breaks or falls out, it is important to see your dentist. The comfort, health and appearance of your smile may be at stake. At the office of Dr. Tejal Kakade, we do our best to address your dental crown damage and other dental emergencies as quickly as possible.

Ways to Tell That Your Dental Crown is Damaged

When a dental crown chips, cracks or becomes loose, your underlying tooth is left vulnerable to further damage and discomfort. The appearance of your smile may also be at stake when a crown is suddenly damaged or falls out. Delaying crown repair or crown replacement can lead to more costly treatment in the future.

If you have a dental crown, it’s important to know how to identify any signs of damage or cracking so that you can call Dr. Kakade right away.

Here are some signs that your dental crown may be cracked:

Pain or Discomfort

If you experience pain or discomfort when you bite down or chew on your crown, this may indicate that it’s cracked.


If you have increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods or drinks, this may also be a sign that your crown is cracked.

Visual Inspection

Examine your crown visually to see if there are any visible cracks or chips. Use a mirror or ask someone to help you if you can’t see the crown clearly.


If you can feel roughness on the crown’s surface, it could mean that there is a crack or chip.

Loose Crown

If your crown feels loose or comes off easily, it could be because it’s cracked or damaged.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.

Prentice M.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
