4. Take the tooth with you to your dentist as quickly as possible
If the root is still intact, your dentist may be able to insert your tooth back into the socket so that you do not lose it permanently.
Chipped Or Broken Teeth
If you have chipped or broken your teeth, your dentist may be able to repair the damage using bonding or veneers. Also if the chip is small enough, your dentist may be able to grind the edge of your tooth down so that the chip is not noticeable. Bonding will allow your dentist to rebuild the damaged area of your tooth. The bonding agent will be tinted to look just like the surrounding teeth. This means that no one will know that you have had your teeth repaired.
