fabricated around the tooth to splint it back together cleanly, a crown impression can be taken and the crown will hold the fractured parts together. If the pulp is involved, root canal can be performed after the temporary crown is made by making a hole through the chewing surface. Afterwards, the impression can be taken if the pieces can be bonded together
and the permanent crown, once placed, will hold the parts together. If the crack is at or above the gum line, a crown can be made to salvage the tooth.
