I suppose an alternative would be no tooth.

Or a fake one.

They can do tooth work now that is practically undetectable, so don't panic, my fellow Dr. Pepper fiend. Sorry about the major pain.

I am a Dental Tech. The best thing to do is to repair the crack with a restoration. Most dentist will try to talk you into putting a cap over the tooth but that isnt necessarily required. It is more of an aesthetic reason more than anything. You better go to dentist because a cracked tooth doesnt get cured with motrin, it gets cured with treatment.

Thats what my parents said I would need. They would put a cap over it. I said there had to be sometype of procedure that doesnt require a drill :lol:

They stick a needle in your gums!! Omg they better give me some painkillers. So you had a crack tooth too?

I got like three rebuilt teeth. My brother cracked all my front teeth by slamming my head onto a basketball court with his knee. And they look like new (well a bit less white than that).

I doubt you'll look like a freak... but they will stick a needle in your gums, and it will still be ineffective, I will always have the theory that dentist anestesia is just a placebo, I always feel that stupid drill.

(and is there something more disgusting than the smell of burning tooth... it makes me nauseaus every time)

Thanks. I really hope its not a crack. But when my mom was checking on it she used a Q-tip and poked it and my god I felt a sharp pain in my tooth.

in the olden days, when scooters were made of wood and kids of steel, they burned warts off with the equivalent of a miniature arc welder. I had warts on my toes and at about age six got them burned off. I got to watch...weird as hell when you can't feel it, but you are watching your flesh lit up from the inside. I musta had 15 Novocaine shots. Smells just like burning teeth and it made my stomach roll. I pinched my nose so I couldn't possible make a mistake and get sick, I wanted to watch.

My son who is now 21, took a 5 iron on a full up swing in the front teeth. It drove and broke his top teeth into their sockets, and wrecked all the sockets on the bottom on the way by. I was BESIDE myself...he was 12 and had just got his adult teeth in and they were great. A stupid moment by two 12 year olds... the repairs were beautiful, but now, nearly ten years later, they need attention again.
