Chipped tooth: A small chip in a front tooth is not a major concern. The edges of the front teeth frequently are accidently banged against hard structure--a bottle neck, a fist, a friend's head, or a another tooth and the enamel can chip. A small chip may not be visibly noticeable. Visit your dentist and ask hi/her to smooth the chip if it is bothering your tongue.
