You are too young to have your teeth start naturally breaking down.  One of my lowers chipped while eating a sandwich at age 55.  Dentist said they just wear thin after a long time. Mine just chipped some tooth off the back of the tooth and they bonded another substance onto it.  Visit a dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry.

Do you have dental insurance?  You could get an implant but it's very expensive, over $1000 per tooth.  They pull the teeth, implant a peg to the bone and add a crown afer all has healed. Slow process but better than a big gap.

It sounds to me as though someone left a piece of that Italian hero in the sandwich :o). This is a discussion group for people with Hep C; Medhelp has a doctor to patient dental health forum here:
