i just woke up at 2 am an hour ago to really bad chipped front teeth. I had bonding work done back in 1995 and i've had minor chips here and there. I just recently had a retainer modifyed so i wouldn't have to worry about lockjaw. at the same time i stopped using(under supervision of the dentist) the retainer on the top teeth that was used to prevent chipping. He said that the lower one with the bar in place could both prevent the teeth from chipping and keep both jaws in a relaxed position so i don't get the jaw popping. Do i demand money off of a total re-bonding of my teeth? my dad is a dentist also but he only does root canals. his friend out in california did my original bonding and i could probably fly out there on a whim($600 emergency flight) and have it done for free(except for the flight)but im afraid to ask for that big of a favor. what should i do?
