  • I actually had once a chipped tooth repaired where the dentist used laser to glue it together. This is more then 15 years ago and it’s still holding strong


  • Sometimes they can kind of glue it back together, or take the sharp edges off. I would go to the dentist to seek advice. However it is a milk tooth and I wouldn’t be too concerned.


  • Trip to the dentist.
    It’s a baby tooth so she is going to lose it anyway but you want to be sure the tooth is just chipped & there is no damage done to her gums or nerves.


  • Trip to dentist for professional,advice suggested for this. It’s only a baby tooth, so might not be overly important


  • My advice is go check with dentist, not anything too expensive as first tooth but they may have suggestions. My two front teeth were taken out when I was two and did not grow till I was about 8. I hated it of course but people said I looked cute. Another suggestion is have it smoothed off so it looks even if smaller


  • Some interesting answers here. Hope some helped :)


  • Take her to the dentist. It would definitely need looking at.


  • they wont do anything with it, it is her first tooth and she will lose it eventually, I think a cap would be a choking hazard if it came off while sleeping. you will get used to it and think it cute eventually


  • make sure its not sharp and head 2 the dentist


  • go to the dentist to get it filled


  • I doubt they’ll do anything, but check with your dentist :)


  • I hope all went well :)


  • You could always check with the dentist to make sure there is no problematic damage


  • Hope you managed to sort out the tooth. What did you end up doing?
