I have an old crown that is metal at the back and is yellow how can I fix this ?

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
I have a crown that was placed on my front second incisor several year ago. I think it is porcelin in front and metal in back. Since getting this crown I have had braces, and my teeth are now much whiter. This crown is darker and does not go all the way up to my gums. I love my new smile, but hate this one tooth as when I smile all you see is that yellow crown. It looks ugly and unnatural. What are my options for fixing this? I would like it to match the color of my now whiter teeth and for it to fit up into my gums so it looks like my other second incisor. What are my options here? B.L

My gum has become darker after having a crown fitted on my front tooth

Thursday, January 31st, 2008
Q.
I currently have a crown fitted to my front tooth and the nerve has been removed. Over time the gum is beginning to darken and not look very good. Is there any procedure to turn the gum back to its usual colour?
