Q.

Chipped front tooth

Hi there

My two front teeth are longer than my others, and the one is chipped and slightly yellow. I went to the dentist some time back and asked her to file my teeth even, which will remove the chip too. But she said she can' t do that as my teeth will be too sensitive. What can i do to remove this awful chip please Doctor?

You may need to crown the tooth. If she says your tooth will be sensititve by trimming it, the crown may be your only option
