Chipped tooth

A chipped tooth may, or may not, be a big cause for concern.

It all depends on how badly you have chipped it.

Some chips are very small and would require nothing but a little smoothing off.
Like this one.
Some are larger and may require a filling to get the tooth looking the way it used to.
Like this one.
And some may require as much as a root canal and crown.
Like this one.
Bottom line is this, if you have chipped your tooth do not panic.
It may be a bad thing but it may require almost nothing at all.
Just get into your dentist and let him/her discuss the options with you.

  1. A chipped tooth is not painful, but the sight of seeing one is. A lost tooth is much more comforting than a chipped tooth. The latter feels as if there's a big gap in your heart. That's the feeling alright.
