i fell and chipped my teeth!!?
i fell off a moving car the other day and broke my two front teeth [top] they said no pulp was showing and the roots are okay but how are they going to fix them? they said the loose teeth surrounding the chipped ones will reattach but how will they "fill in" my chipped ones?


LOL this made a laugh.... just ask the dentist!

Well that was a bit of a silly thing to do wasn't it?
I guess they will just crown them at some point....quite pricey I should think.

My son chipped three of his front teeth on a coffee table and they were fine for about 6 months or so...then they started to turn brown. So we had to put caps on them. He was only two at the time so he had to be sedated and whatnot.

I also had an orthodontist chip away too much of my teeth after having braces removed and all I had to do was have the chips filled in with a white dental filling.

So...basically...that's two options you have for fixing your teeth. I would say that it would depend on how badly they're chipped. You might could fix it with a filling or you may end up having to have them capped.

Likely they will use ceramic after shaving them a bit. It is slightly painful according to my sister. She has a ceramic fill-in and also a whole new fake tooth, haha. Have fun :)

A Little Insane and That's Okay
First off, the loose teeth do not reattach, you are misinformed.

Second the will use a temporary bond the fix the cracked teeth and then you will have to get a crown on those, for them to be permanent,.

they will probably cap them if the root isn't showing. it's what they did to my brother. They kind of just build onto the tooth you have there..

they will prob CROWN your chiped teeth. or cap thm :)

Wow, you have a WHOLE slew of falsehoods here. That's the problem with this forum....most people answering don't have a clue.
This is usually a simple fix. The procedure may not even need you to be numbed up if the teeth aren't already sensitive. A small diamond on the handpiece [drill] will be used to roughen up the edges of the chipped areas. Then a very weak etchant will be applied and washed off. A fluid bonding agent is next and then reinforced plastic [composite] is added. All of this is hardened with a bright light. It should match your existing teeth so well that only you and the dental office will be able to tell the difference. Nothing to lose any sleep over.

If the chips are small, they can probably repair it by putting a composite in. it you broke part of the tooth, then your best bet is probably a crown. Also, you want to follow up with x ray of tooth on regular bases. often, tooth that suffers blunt trauma can die and can have external resorption(body thinks the tooth is foreign object and start eating away the root structure). Also the fall can cause vertical fracture that sometimes the x ray does not pick up. Good luck! discuss your options with your dentist.
