Broken Lateral Incisor
Hi there,I agree with Dr. Merrill's very thorough answer. Because your case appears more involved than just a break to be corrected, I think a dental school is a great place to go to save some money. They'll be very thorough in their evaluation. It costs less money, but takes more time because your treatment is completed by students and residents and overseen by licensed dentists. This tooth may have broken because of trauma, decay, friction from your other teeth because they are crowded, etc. I would recommend an exam either by a licensed dentist or a dental school before the tooth becomes symptomatic or breaks further. Best of luck!
