My front tooth has cracked at gum, horizontally, and halfway down. Will it break completely?
4 months ago
I had perfect teeth never needed braces perfect smile. Then my wisdom teeth came in and everything started shifting. I've broken one of my teeth in half (which was fixed by my dentist). Now one of my front top teeth has a slight crack that I can see (only in bright light), it's cracked half way right at the gum line and kind of feel like a burning sensation. I'm getting my wisdom teeth taken out tmrw. My question, will my tooth completely break? will I be toothless? That would look horrible.

It's really hard to answer your question without a picture. Many front teeth develope stress fractures and never crack completely. I suggrest letting your dentist evaluate the situation, but i wouldn't worry too much.
