I Have A Crown That Doesn’t Match And Is Starting To Give Me Pain, Will I Have To Start Again From Scratch?

Monday, September 16th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Shaffie, I’d like to discuss with you and tell you that I have a crown on my tooth next to the main front one up the top, when it was done it wasn’t ever matching and I had it done over two years ago, it’s just starting to give me pain and I’m not sure why this is? I would really like the crown replaced with a much better match, can they use the same crown and change the colour or do I have to start from scratch? I’ve changed dentist as since having the crown they wouldn’t sort it out for me when I wasn’t too happy with it, I paid 350 for the crown and I feel very self conscious and I feel like I can never show my teeth to anyone in public. Thank you, I hope you can help.

I Have A Crown With A Post That Keeps Coming Loose. What Is The Best Way To Get This Fixed?

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013
Q.

Why does my crown with a post keep coming loose? It is about 11 years old and I have been to my dentist at least 3 times in order to have it glued back in.  It is a front tooth with 5 more crowns next to it, all of which are fine so I just wondered if it may be the case that the crown could be glued in stronger?  I would be very grateful for your advice as I am getting to the point of thinking about having it removed and having a false tooth fitted as a replacement.

My New Crowns Are Discoloured, What Should I Do About This?

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013
Q.

I have recently had 9 of my crowns renewed by a cosmetic dentist. I love the shape however my front upper 4 are showing a grey blueish tint to them especially in darker light they look very grey. I have gone back to the dentist and they have agreed to change one which has particular blueish shading on the tooth. I was told that this was the post underneath showing through. Which I guess that with the other 3 it is probably the post colour underneath showing through giving a greyish look in certain light, I paid £500 per tooth. What is your advice? I was thinking about going for a second opinion?

I had 20 Crown Replacements And Now My Feel Teeth Are Loose, What Should I Do?

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013
Q.

I had cosmetic crown replacements on 20 teeth. I had a great deal of trouble getting them right. As in, I had to have many adjustments carried out by my dentist. My bottom front teeth kept hitting each other resulting in constant movement. Fortunately, that has been resolved for the most part, but now my bottom canine is loose. This has just occurred over the last week. Do you think this is because of the constant movements? The bottom teeth have been in place since June. What can be done for this? Should I go to a specialist rather than my actual dentist who carried out the crown replacements? Thank you for any help you can  provide.

My Crown Colour Doesn’t Match My Veneer. What Should I Do?

Monday, January 7th, 2013
Q.

Hello, three years ago I had cosmetic dentistry done on my two front teeth. I had a vaneer on one and a porcelain crown on the other due to damage. I was really happy with the appearance of them, they were slightly whiter than my other teeth but looked good due to my dominant front teeth smile. A few weeks ago I chipped the crown and had to have this crown redone. I once again selected the full porcelain crown. After getting home and checking in the mirror there is an obvious colour difference between the veneer which is whiter and the new crown which has a yellower tone. I am unhappy in myself about this coulour difference. It now looks like the whiter veneer is the odd tooth out. What would be your advice into getting this work rectified or redone? Thanks
