  • I haven't heard of any toothpaste that prevents a tooth that is already chipping.  There are toothpastes that claim to help FUTURE chips from happening.  I would recommend getting it fixed immediately, they rot easier once they start chipping.  A small chip can lead to A LOT of problems later!

  • I think my enamel (sp?) is weak

  • Oh okay.  I would definitely talk to your dentist since your tooth is already chipping but look around the toothpaste section where you shop also because I've seen quite a few toothpastes that help with that.  ;)

  • A tooth can be splintered depending on the crack, plus a veneer or other appropriate 'cover' can be put on it too. And sometimes a tooth can be smoothed out depending on where its' chipped or cracked.

    Just get an opinion or two. You can compare and think about it all.

  • Go to the dentist.

    In the mean time, drink more milk or take calcium supplements. Do not drink soda or juice.

  • Once your enamal is gone, it's gone, like the commercial says. Go to your dentist ans see about getting a polymer put on to prevent the tooth from decaying or getting a cavity. Your dentist will best advise you on what is causing it to chip off.
