Default My hedgehog chipped his tooth

He was playing the other day. For quite a few hours. Still, I'm not exactly sure when he did it. I was holding him and looking at his face today and I saw that his tooth was blunt and chipped at the end. I'm not sure if he's in any pain. He seems to be acting normal. He played for quite a few hours yesterday and at the end he started falling asleep on his wheel. But he still seems normal. I emailed my vet and he responded that although it's not ideal that I should check on him for a few days because pulling a tooth unnecessarily is worse. Which I agree. Has anyone else had a hedgehog who broke off part of the tooth? And if so what course of action did you take, if any?

Also, I attached a picture. He had notes and lost of spines, but is getting better. Thanks.
