  • Thank you so much - this feedback has been a relief as there is no sensitivity so it may be remedied with the composite built up option but I will call a local dentist for an appointment now. This service is absolutely brilliant and I will be sure to share this with my friends and social network friends. Regards

  • What should be the treatment of the chipped tooth depends upon the extent of the chip and the symptoms. If the child is sensitive to hot and cold sensation and the fracture is very near or exposing the pulp then the tooth has to undergo the root canal treatment and above that the crown has to be given . But if the fracture is like this that the tooth is not sensitive and is not exposing the pulp then even the composite built up will work for the time being. It is better you visit the dentist who after doing the clinical examination and taking the X-ray's will advise you for the treatment plan.
