Hi… I met with an accident a month ago and one of my tooth (front) got chipped (Photo attached). I need a full mouth restoration procedure that includes bridges and other dental procedures. My friend has done her root canal therapy in Oshawa, Clearbrook Dental. I am planning to go there for doing mine. Any suggestions regarding full mouth restoration process? Or is there any better option than this?

Well, obviously the dentist isn't suggesting a FMR over a chipped tooth. Please don't even try and pass that by us- if indeed you are. I have to admit I don't quite get what you are writing about.

So let's talk in general terms...

First, your chipped tooth. There are several options. It might be repairable, but I doubt it being an anterior tooth. My best guess is a crown. Your general dentist can do that. Or maybe if it isn't endangering the nerve it can be smoothed out and that's that.

Second, as to a rot canal, again, your general dentist can do that as well.

Third, as to a full mouth restoration, I would always want a second opinion. Also, I would never let a general dentist do one on me. Not that some aren't up to it, but I have seen so many of FMR performed by general dentists that went awry. I would only want a Prosthodontist performing that. And only if it was very necessary. As an example, my wife could use a FMR but as she is chewing fine and in no pain, so why bother?

FMR for one chipped tooth? Get a second opinion.

A cap or even a composite resin on the one tooth seems more reasonable.
