Can a chipped tooth grow back? I chipped my front tooth in a very small way, but i think it is noticeable. Is there any way the enamel can grow back and cover the chip? .

In brief: Enamel

Enamel does not grow back.
Some dental bonding should fix the chip quite easily.

No, the enamel will not grow back.
See your dentist for a very small bonded restoration. Once completed you probably would never know it was chipped.

Enamel will never grow back. You would need to see a dentist and have them fix the chip with a little bonding.
