FAQ:  Chipped Teeth



Question:
Recurring Chip on Lower Tooth: One of my lower front teeth keeps chipping. I've had it repaired twice and the repair keeps chipping off.

My dentist says it is due to this tooth being out of line with the surrounding ones (out in front) and that the other teeth are exerting pressure causing the bonding to re-chip.

Is this accurate or it is possible that he's just not that good and the procedure? ...Visitor from CA

Answer:
You have an occlusion problem.... your opposing teeth are likely causing the repeated chipping events.
