Q.

HELP!!!

Eeeek, I discovered a funny snaggy edge to my one front incisor on Saturday, but didn' t give it much thought, until I happened to glance into the mirror that night....!!! I got SUCH a fright! The bottom of my right incisor is missing a piece!! Badly chipped. It could have happened when I was chewing on a peach and I hit the pip...quite violently... HELP!!! Now I' m too scared to open my mouth - it looks horrendous!!!! HELP!!!

I should probably ask if this could be a consequence of my 11-yr bout of bulimia?

bulemia does weaken teeth and make them susceptible to fracture.
See a dentist to have the tooth repaired.
