The crown on my teeth is too large

Monday, March 23rd, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Suri! Last week I had a root canal on my #14 molar and had a crown put on. After the root canal I had my temporary crown on for about a week and a half with no problems. My dentist put my permanent crown on two days ago and it seemed much larger than the temporary and the adjoining teeth. I experienced a lot of pain for the first day and could not chew on it. Yesterday I went back to the dentist complaining that the crown was too large and I wanted him to change it. He told me he thought it was ok and the pain should go away in a few days. I’ve had 4 crowns done before and never had that kind of pain afterwards. Right now the pain has pretty much subsided (except for a little tightness) and I can now chew on it, however I still feel the crown is too large. Should I insist that he changes this out since I feel I shouldn’t have had pain for 2 days afterwards and cosmetically it does not coform with the size of the adjoining teeth?

Monday, March 23rd, 2009
Q.
My front two teeth are a bit stick out and gap. Gap is getting more obviously seen between these I think , due to missing of one back tooth. I remove back tooth in last three years because of cavity. What should I do now. I haven’t got confident to smile.

What is the life span of composite veneers?

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009
Q.
Hi Komal I am 33 and over the past few years I have undergone extensive dental treatment and maxillofacial surgery on my lower jaw. I am quite happy with the results, however my 4 front upper teeth are still not straight and there is a dark triangle/space inbetween my two fron teeth. I recently visited a cosmetic dentist who advertised lumineers. After a consultation costing £200 the dentist told me that composite veneers would be best for the 4 upper teeth. He suggested that I could get ones at £400 per tooth or £500 per tooth as he didn;t think limineers were best for me at £900 per tooth? I was quite happy with the results of the mock up and he told me the £500 composites per tooth would last 10 years. I have been reading up on the internet and am now a little concerned as the life span doesn’t seem to be as long. Also I didn;t want any reduction of my own teeth so he said composite was best. The overall treatment for 4 teeth will cost £2100 plus the £200 consultation. Can you advise if you think the composite veneers are best for me and if so if this price is reasonable?

Is it possible to have any gaps between teeth filled in at the same time as having veneers fitted and also if it is possible to have my smile widened?

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009
Q.
Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to have any gaps between teeth filled in at the same time as having veneers fitted and also if it is possible to have my smile widened? my teeth are in an absolutely terrible state and my fear of dentists has stopped me going regularly, i have had a couple of really bad experiences with dentists and have been very ill after 12 Major operations over the past 15 years. unfortunately, because of the amount of painkillers and other tablets i have been on, approx 36 tablets a day, i was not aware when i was suffering any tooth pain and have subsequently lost a lot of my teeth. I am not long out of hospital after a bad bout of Pneumonia and have cut down massively on my tablet income, i feel my illnesses have had my best years and i’ve always been so self concious of my teeth i would like to have a complete makeover of mouth!! I’m sorry to have gone on a bit but if you could help me i would be very gratefull, thank you in advance for aswering my questions and giving me any advice.

Advice for teeth straightening in West Wales

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009
Q.
I am 32 years old, my teeth at the front top and bottom over lap baddly. I have decay on the gum line and discoloured teeth. I use a phillips sonic tooth brush and all the usual and have for years. I have not looked at my teeth in a mirror for 2 years. 2 days ago I bit a label of a new jumper and a chip came of my bottom tooth! I have asked a number of dentists about straightning my teeth (as they comment that they are bad and why had nothing been done when I was younger) but they tell me I will have to go somewhere else and offer no advice! What can I do about my soft enamel? Where do I go for advice about straightning my teeth? I live in West Wales and dont want to travel to London. Help me please, Thanks
