Best options to fix my chipped tooth when my braces are removed? Is a crown the best and only option? (photo)

My dentist requested crown but since it's my front teeth I want it to look natural and since I'm 19 to last long also .

Good question--I would concur with Dr S as well--a crown would mean losing a lot of healthy tooth structure--At your age I would also recommend bonded composite--this could be done before the braces are removed as well. Good luck!

I would hold off on placing a crown on your front tooth. You can repair the tooth with bonding and it can match very well and last a while. It would be the least invasive process to fix your tooth.
