My Crowns Are Forming Wide Gaps Between Them. What Can Be Done?

Q.
Hello, I have crowns on my front teeth both top and bottom. I had these done when I was abroad about 8 years ago. The front ones on the top are forming wide gaps between them. Is there anything I can get done without replacing them? I am not sure, but I heard that there can be splints put between them. If so, are these expensive? I do not want to have to replace them as they are very expensive. Thanks.

Hello, thank you for your question. If gaps are opening up then it might be a gum problem that will need addressing. I would find a local dentist, preferably with a gum specialist, to have the crowns and teeth X-rayed and checked for bone loss. Kind regards, Andrew.
