So about 4 months ago I got a root canal, and I'm only 17, and they told me I needed a crown, but that costs like at least a thousand dollars and my state health insurance considers it "cosmetic" and wont pay for it. Yesterday I was chewing on something and a sliver about 3 millimeters wide and 2 millimeters long broke from the outer part of my tooth that surrounded the filling part of my tooth. There is no pain, I'm not sure if that just is because there was no infection (I have been taking much better care of my teeth since the root canal) or because the pulpectomy took all of the nerve out of my tooth. I'm curious what my options are? Does it sound to you like I will need a tooth pulled and get a bridge or what? It's the second molar back on the left side of my mouth on the bottom. Today is sunday of labor day weekend, so I can't even talk to a dentist until tuesday,but since I'm in no pain It's okay I suppose. I just want to know what to avoid with this broken tooth, or how to keep it clean, and what you think might happen. I still have the part of my tooth that broke off, can I tell anything about the nature of the break by looking at the tooth?
