Question 1.
A 23-year old female office assistant attended the practice with a chipped tooth,
which had happened the previous evening at a local bar. She complained of general
tooth sensitivity to cold foods and drinks for the past few months, and was concerned
that her teeth were ‘crumbling’ despite her low sugar diet regime. On examination,
the dentist discovered a minimal incisal edge chip of 31 which required smoothing
only, no cavities, and clean shiny enamel generally. In view of these findings, which
option is the dentist most likely to recommend?
