New implant chipped twice

New implant chipped twice:
I recently had an implant (back molar)
It chipped while I was eating and it caused the new implant to be very rough and jagged. I called my dentist that day and saw her within two weeks she didnt appear too concerned and was going to contact the Dr who placed the implant. However,
I believe it chipped again.
I went to the dentist on Aug 2nd and she smoothed it out. I am wondering since I paid for an implant
and it chipped twice within a month of having it put in - is there any recourse I can take? Was there a warranty on the tooth from the factory?
The dentist who placed the implant has not contacted me. I would like to have my file reflect that the tooth was defective - or
does that matter? It feels fine now but it appears much smaller.
