Chipped a very small piece off the tip of my canine tooth. The dentist said to fix it would be to grind it down even more and cap it. Is this right?

Hard to say: Can't tell why the tooth chipped, the condition of the tooth, restorations it may have, and how it occludes with your other teeth. If you question your current dentist's diagnosis, why don't you get a second opinion from someone that can examine you? This way you can be sure to treat that tooth and feel comfortable about it.

Is it sharp?: A sharp canine sometimes induces the tongue to go to the area to "pad" the sharp edge. Ask your dentist to reshape or smooth out the canine if this is the case. Do we have tongue biting during function (eating or chewing or swallowing)? Is your canine erupted in the wrong position (ectopic eruption)? Minor tooth movement with aligner sometimes can help to change the position.
