Can A Chipped Tooth Heal On Its Own?

 

Can a chipped tooth heal on its own if I take a lot of calcium tablets? Do I have to get a dentist to fix it? Is it covered by insurance or is it considered cosmetic?

    No, it won’t grow the enamel back, not even with calcium tablets. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Since the tooth is damaged, your dental insurance should cover it, but have your dentist office call your insurance company just to be sure. Your dentist can fix it with resin to match your tooth color. Enamel protects your teeth so you should get it fixed so it doesn’t decay.
