My Dog Broke a Tooth - Does he need to see the vet?

Hi Everyone -

I just noticed today that my little guy broke a tooth. I assume it was fairly recently because he was to the vet for a check up in February and the vet looked at his teeth and didn't say anything. It's one of his top teeth, a few from the middle. It's not red or inflamed at the gum, it appears to have just broken straight across horizontally. Only a little bit of the tooth is left outside of the gum. Has anyone experienced this with their dog? If so, do I need to address it with the vet or can it just be left alone? He's only 4 years old - I guess he bit down on something outside? If anyone can offer any advice, I'd appreciate it. Be well.
