My new dentist tells me I should have 5 teeth removed after my crowns became damaged. What advice can you give?

Thursday, April 14th, 2011
Q.

i recently visited a new dentist as my previous one was too far away, i had 2 crowns before and they got damaged and fell out, when i returned to my old dentist he said they needed to be removed as the crown was not staying put. that was november and my new dentist was quite abrupt and rude and told me the 2 needed 2 be removed and another 3, 1 is a widom tooth. he told me the nhs would not pay for me to have thosands of pounds of work done and he would not treat me until the teeth had been removed. he then made a hospital appointment for this to happen under sedation. i agree the wisdom and the previous 2 need to be removed but the others im sure can be saved, otherwise it leaves me with 2 back teeth??

Q.

Hi. I have got three fillings at the bottom right of my mouth. I sing in front of crowds with my guitar and I am concious that I have black teeth and peoits off putting as I hate the look of them.

Is there any way of sorting this out, getting false teeth put in or whitening ‘cap’s ontop? Please help me!

Thanks,

I have a black line between my crown and my gum, what can I do to get it fixed?

Thursday, April 7th, 2011
Q.

I have undergone maxilofacial surgery 28 years ago when I was 21, but I have found over the past few years my teeth have moved quite significantly. I also have a crown at the front which has been replaced twice, the last time about 16 years ago, but I have a black line between that and my gum, I have been told by my dentist that nothing can be done to improve the look of it and that it can’t be replaced again. I have been investigating Invisalign and wondered if that might be an appropriate option for me, or if anything can be done about my crown, please can you advise, thanks.

I have had a NHS porcelain crown fitted but it is coming away at the gum, should I go private?

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011
Q.

I have had an nhs porcelain crown fitted and it has now come away from the gum and there is a black rim showing as well as a gap between my gum and crown. My dentist informs me that if i have another NHS crown the same thing will happen and i need a private crown at a cost of £595 .. Is this correct?

Is it normal to have had a crown break twice in three years and would any warranty exist?

Friday, November 26th, 2010
Q.

I had a crown fitted in July 2007 and the post has snapped. This is the second time this has happened to me. Am I unlucky or is this a common occurrence? Also do these crowns come with any guarantee because I’m now facing a bill of £2500+ for an implant.

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
Q.

I have been having ongoing problems with a lower rt 7 which has been crowned with a white and now a gold crown. 2 months later sudden pain and sensitivity between the 7 and 8. Dentist is talking about root treatment by drilling through the crown. Can’t they take the crown off and replace after treatment.?

What is the process for crown and veneer replacement and how does a gum graft procedure work?

Thursday, November 18th, 2010
Q.
Hi Mark, I was the victim of violent crime some 10 years ago where I21 and 22 were knocked out, taking much of the surrounding gum tissue and bone with them and I 11 was cracked in half. I received treatment at the Leeds Dental Institute back in 2001 where they placed two implants, abutments and crowns in and cemented then veneered I11. It was decided by the surgeons at the time that, due to the large amount of discharging bone fragments, that to risk a gum graft was not sensible. Therefore I currently have a slight lack of gum surrounding I21 / 22. I am not happy with the positioning or visibility of the crowns today. Recent x-rays show that the implants are perfectly healthy with no further receeding of the surrounding tissue or bone. I am interested in understanding the process for replacing both crowns and the veneer to more aethetically pleasing versions, combined with a tooth whitening process. At the same time I would like to specifically understand how a gum graft can be factored into this proceedure and what the inherent risks are today and the likely costs of such treatments. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
