Chipped incisor

I chipped a small piece off my front tooth a few years ago in a football accident. Also my teeth are slightly crooked. One of my front teeth sticks out a little and looks like I have a giant gap in front when I tilt my head upwards. What are my options? I'd like to keep the costs minimal.

A definitive treatment option cannot be given without having a look at the clinical picture and X-rays.... most likely planned orthodontic treatment will be the best option for you and the chipped tooth can be built up by tooth coloured materials for best aesthetics..... Regards....

We can summarize your issues :- 1) Chipped/Broken front tooth 2) Crooked/Malaligned teeth 3) Gap/Diastema in front teeth Treatment Plant According to me:- 1) Orthodontic Intervention/Braces for malaligned teeth and diastema closure. 2) After completion of orthodontic treatment, esthetic reconstruction of broken front tooth with composite.

Since u r young the best option may be orthodontic braces or clear aligners.  The second and a quicker option could be smile designing. If u send me ur pic I can evaluate better.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre. God bless u.

Hello dear
The best option to rectify malpostioned teeth is braces but it takes a year to do so.
If the tooth positioning is not very curved I suggest to go in for cosmetic treatment ttgat will cost less and take minimal time to complete.
Take care
