Q.

Dental Crowns

My top Lateral Incisor has cracked, would a dentist be able to fix this tooth or would I need to get a Crown?

if the damage is not too severe, you could have a filling placed but if the crack is severe a crown may be a better option

Thank you for the info!
I feel that my teeth are weak even though I brush them twice a day, rinse and floss!
Can weakness be caused by biting on my teeth when I sleep!
If that is the case would the best thing be to get a bite plate (guard)!
I know that prices vary from Dentist to dentist but are Crowns and Bite Plates generally expensive?
