Q.

Cracked tooth/2 Permanent teeth?

I have a cracked front tooth and when my dentist did an xray, he said that I have another permanent tooth pushing this permanent one out. Is it possible to have to permanent teeth in your lifetime? I need to fix it as its also quite skew and now causing pain as it is very sensitive, what would be the best treatment? Root canal and crown or veneer?

it may be a permanent tooth that has not erupted or it could be an "extra" tooth- this does occur sometimes.
Treatment will depend on diagnosis after seeing the x-ray.
