our senior member's advice/link notwithstanding, dawn, 1st determine the crk's cause & fix that,,, then a repair that will last.

personally, we don't use self-leveling compounds except on commercial floors & extreme residential problems,,, they are tricky for the newby - we like diamond
grinders - faster & easier.

you may need the services of a pro - contractor or engineer - if you're uncomfortable w/floor construction methods.
