My from tooth is chipped, can I sand it down myself?
It's a really minute chip. It left a jagged edge in the corner. I cant afford to go to the dentist right now. Should I use a sand paper nail file or a metal nail file?

You don't wanna do that, because it may be rough and cause damage to your lip or tongue.


If you really can't afford to go to the dentist then don't do anything. A chip is just an inconvenience that you can only make worse by trying to handle it yourself. Eventually it will get sanded down naturally by your tongue and saliva. Just leave it alone or find a way to make it to the dentist.

Don't do it yourself - you'll just make it worse. Save up for a dentist.

Look in the phonebook for an economical dentists - some will advertise "sliding scale" rates. This means the amount of your bill is dependent upon your income - someone with a large paycheck will be charged $$$$, while someone with a minimum wage paycheck will be charge less $.

In the meantime, keep your mouth extra-clean. Listerine, floss, brush after meals, the whole nine yards.

like the ocean needs the waves
How bad of a chip is it? I had a chip on my front tooth in the left corner (in between my front teeth) and by the time I had a chance to go to the dentist it was all smoothed out anyways. It wasn't a big chip though....
Perhaps you could call your dentist and see if it is neccesary to see them and ask them for some advice.

No, just go to the dentist.

Neither you will make it worse.Save up as much as you can and go to the dentist.In the meantime clean your teeth a bit more often to stop plaque building up in the crevice.Use a mouthwash to kill any bacteria .

If it's a teeeeeeeeeeeeny tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny chip, you may be able to get away with it... use a sandpaper file.

If you decide to go to the dentist, it will take less than 5 minutes for the tooth to be smoothed, and it shouldn't cost any more than the fee for an office visit.

Best of luck!
