What are my rights if I recently broke a tooth while eating a packaged snack from a major food manufacturer?

Question Details:

I contacted the company and they asked me to send in the rest of the food in question. I did take a picture of the contaminated food before sending. Upon review they wrote me a letter stating that it was a piece of the machine used to manufacture the food with 2 coupons for a free product. I asked the company what they were going to do about my broken tooth and they told me to get an estimate from a dentist. Before I send the estimate is there anything else I should do and am I entitled to pain and suffering, as I now have a fear of eating pre packaged foods?
