My new crowns are giving me problems, what can I do?

Thursday, February 24th, 2011
Q.

i recently had porcelin crowns done on teeth 6,7,8,9,10 and11. no. 6 is a little larger and higher than my original tooth and is pointing in a little bit. no. 10 is shaded with a tint of gray ( like my temp was on no.10) the dentist said ,don’t worry your new crown won’t have the grayish tint. BUT it does!! i now have two “black holes” at the gumline between teeth 6,7,and 8. and now smallish gaps between each of my new teeth which lead to alot of saliva that forms in my upper gum area.i did not have this problem before and do not see why after spending the money i did ,why i have it now.i am aware that gum lines receed as you age (56) but, again i did not have any of the “problems” before,so why do i have to accept them now. i am constantly wiping my upper gum to rid of foam and bubbles from the saliva. and this morning i left a phone message with them and asked for an appt. to polish the back of no. 9. they called be back and said the dentist cannot do anything about the “color” of no.9,.she obviously misunderstood my message but said, if you want to replace no.9 due to the grayish tint then you have to pay for it yourself. WHAT GIVES!!!! THANK YOU.

Due to bulimia my front teeth have worn down, how can I improve them and how much would it cost?

Thursday, February 24th, 2011
Q.

Hello, I am a 36 year old lady and over the last 15 years, due to 10 years of sufferering from bulimia, my two front teeth have worn down and are now slightly shorter than the rest of my top teeth. I was always told that I had an amazing smile and beautiful teeth. But not any more. I am looking into what options there are to adding a couple of mil in length to those top two teeth ( or veneers ?). I don’t even know if any thing is possible to fix this. Could you please be kind enough to get back to me and also advise me how much I would have to save up to get this corrected, many thanks.

One of my crowns is cracked, does it need to be replaced?

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011
Q.

One of my front crowns has a crack across the back. What should my next course of action be. Can it be repaired or does it have to be replaced.? I think it is a porcelain crown-both my front teeth were replaced by crowns on insurance after they were damaged after an assault incident. Thanks for your advice.
