Options: See your dentist. If you have not had a root canal you may need one. A fragile tooth can be strengthen by a crown.The down will look like a natural tooth. If the tooth is not treatable your dentist will give you options for treatment.

Post and Crown: A fragile tooth should be restored with a crown. If it needs root canal therapy, then that is completed first, then a post, then the crown.
