Natural tooth back

Hi can have your natural looking tooth back by having a good dentist, skilled at  bonding, bond the tooth. Hopefully, if you take good care of the bonding, it will last. If not, than I suggest a porcelain crown over the tooth which will last you many years. Look into an e max crown. Start with bonding first.

If the broken piece is intact it can be hydrated and bonded to your remaining tooth. If that is not the case, cosmetic bonding is the next most conservative procedure. Either way the nerve should be checked by a root canal specialist first. Good luck.

Can my tooth be reshaped?

The short answer is yes but looking at the photo I suggest a crown or veneer or composite filling would be the better choice good luck

Reshaping Broken Front Tooth

If your nerve is not damaged, then the most conservative way to reshape this tooth would be with Dental Bonding in the hands of a very experienced and talented Cosmetic Dentist. A longer lasting solution would involve a Ceramic Crown or Laminate Veneer.
