Question about my chipped tooth filling

User Level:
Posted by: compass  (11 years ago)
Hi all,

About a week ago, my front tooth chipped because I hit something hard on it. The dentist put a filling on it. My problem is, it's different in shape compared to my other teeth. It is also too, short. I am so upset and I lost my self confidence.:-( What should I do? Can this be redone? Can the tooth be reshaped? I need your help and suggestion,please. Thank you very much!

Hi compass,

You need to get it redone. It should match the original shape,size and shade of your natural tooth. Do not be so
upset with it. It is treatable so cheer up!

It is possible that the shade used was wrong. You can have it refilled. The dentist should take time to smoothen the tooth to give it a good shape.
