Chipped Implants: I just had my implant put it and randomly throughout one night, I somehow chipped my implanted tooth on the right, is that fixable? ... Visitor from Nova Scotia
If the chip does not create a significant cosmetic compromise nor create a food impaction area, that you can not keep clean, you will probably DO NOT have to have the crown redone.
Repairs to porcelain (which has to be the type of crown you have in order to chip it) typically do not hold up because of the differences in the materials and the stresses exerted on the fracture component.
If this is in the back of your mouth, I suggest you see how it goes and it may not chip any more.
