I just had another tooth chip today. The piece that broke off was about as big as the oval part of this lower case "a." I have had chipping off and on for about 2 1/2 years now. I asked my dentist last year and he said that there was nothing wrong, just that my teeth were getting older and they do that.......but I am only 27! If that is the case, what will happen when I am 50???
It gets worse when I use whitening toothpaste (dentist flippantly said that was not the cause and never did let me finish or ask any questions) so I stopped using it. I picked the whitening toothpaste up about 3 days ago on accident when dh was on nights and just used it b/c he was sleeping in the room with my usual toothpaste and I didn't want to wake him. I think I may have used it 3 times this week and now I am chipping again!
Any ideas on what causes this (can whitening toothpaste really be the culprit?) and what I can do to stop it (beyond not using whitening toothpaste, if it is my problem)? I am scared that bigger pieces will chip off if I don't figure out what causes it soon!
I will greatly appreciate any help! TIA!
