Are Bridges a Suitable Alternative to Dental Implants?

Monday, July 20th, 2015
Q.

Good afternoon. I would like to improve the appearance of my teeth. I have a missing tooth at the back of my mouth on the right hand side and a crown next to it. The crown broke a year ago but the dentist was able to mend it back together.

I would like to replace the crown and replace the missing tooth with two bridges.

I’m not able to afford implants so wondered if bridges were a suitable alternative to implants?

Thank you.

My Plate Doesn’t Feel Right, What Should I Do?

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015
Q.

Hello. I am a 68 year old lady. My crown broke off next to my front teeth so the dentist did my front tooth with two side back teeth which she said would hold in better. Should the plate come half way down my teeth? My bite hits the plate and seems to push the bottom jaw to the side. It doesn’t feel right, it’s putting pressure on my front teeth wich are crowns too. I am really worried and don’t like wearing them. They cost me 290 pounds so what can I do? Thanks for your time.

Would it be Possible to Have an Implant to Replace a Broken Crown?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. My crown (second from middle) recently became loose. My dentist removed it and stuck it temporarily, but it came out the next day. About ten years ago my crown broke off and the then dentist replaced it by putting a post into the tooth, and this has now apparently broken. My current dentist has told me that he now cannot drill into my root and crown and so I need to consider having the root out and a bridge put in, or would it be possible to have an implant? The root seems to be OK from what I can see, it’s not loose. I don’t understand why the dentist cannot put in another post. Can you make any suggestions please?

I’m Visiting London And My Crown Has Broken. Should I Wait I Go Back Home Or Fix It Now?

Thursday, April 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. I hope you can help me out. I’m visiting London for two weeks, but my crown on my front tooth has just cracked in half. I would like to fix it when I am back in the states, but I don’t want to risk it falling off or breaking more at the moment. Is there something I can do temporarily? Or will I need to replace the crown now, while I’m residing in London?

I would like to know my options before I have to make a decision so any help you could provide me with would be useful.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Should I have to pay for a procedure if I have had it twice before and something has gone wrong?

Thursday, December 9th, 2010
Q.

I had a porcelain crown fitted and just over 12 months later it fractured. It was sent back to the lab but they would not admit any fault on their part. I had a new crown made to replace it and my dental clinic reduced the cost of this by £90 as good will. However that crown as now fractured in the same place as before and approx. after the same length of time. I have an appt. on Weds but would not be happy if I have to pay for a 3rd time. Where do i stand?

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.

If I got a denture to replace a broken crown, would I be able to have an implant later on if I didn’t like it?

Monday, August 16th, 2010
Q.
I had a seven crowns fitted in 1978 to replace my front teeth. On monday one of these crowns snapped off leaving the remainder of the tooth insitu. My dentist told me that an implant would be quite expensive and suggested a denture on a plate which is currently being made on the NHS. He told me that in a week or so time he would need to remove the remainder of the tooth and fixtures from that area. What I would like to know is if this is done and I cannot get on with the denture could I then have an implant done, should I find somewhere reasonably priced. Many thanks,

Should my dentist have to pay for the crown that HE broke?

Friday, April 9th, 2010
Q.
My wife has had a crown for 3 1/2 years that has recently become loose. She went to our family dentist of 25 years to have it adjusted and it broke when he was trying to sand it down. He said it would cost her $1,400 for a new crown. Since he is the one that broke the crown, shouldn’t he replace it and only charge her for the office visit?,
