If a chip or crack is large enough to expose the pulp of a tooth, a root canal may be required. Root canal therapy is performed at our Charlotte, NC office by removing the dead or infected pulp and thoroughly cleaning the canals of the tooth. The remaining tooth is usually covered with a crown to protect the now weakened tooth.
