Do you think my son should have his chipped tooth crowned?

Saturday, December 4th, 2010
Q.

my 12yr old son had an accident, and had his front tooth knocked out. He’s had root canal work done but I think it needs crowning as it chipped. His dentist has said that will be a waist of time because when he’s older he will have an implant. Do you think he should crown it?

Q.

Hi, my friend who is in her 60’s went to her dentist last Saturday to have her bottom front teeth crowned. The dentist drilled the roots out but stopped and told her that there should be blood but there was ‘nt any there. He then took an x ray and told her there where shows in her gum, cancer was mentioned and then was told it could be an infection. Treatment was not done and she has to return this Saturday for a further xray to see if it is all clear. Question…is my friend worrying for nothing???? please advice and I thank you for reading this.

How long should a dental crown last for?

Saturday, December 4th, 2010
Q.

Hi, my partner had a porcelain crown fited two years to a tooth in the lower jaw at the rear. The crown has come off and is damaged. Her current dentist said the crown needs to be replaced and as itis quite slim two years is about all it will last if replaced again in porcelain. He advised her to consider replacing the crown with either gold or silver which she is hesitant to do. Should a crown last longer than two years when when I was told by my own dentist that my crowns should last at least ten years.

How much would it cost to have a dental crown placed?

Saturday, December 4th, 2010
Q.

I was wondering how much it costs to put a cap over a tooth. I have two teeth that i would like to be shaped different because they look like vampire teeth and i would like them to be more square shaped. What is the price range on two caps? Is there any alternative procedure that would cost less? What is the least expensive type of cap? Thanks for your help.
