I’ve Been Told That I Have To Get Used To My Bulky Crown. Could You Tell Me If This Is Correct Or Not?

Monday, June 16th, 2014
Q.

Good evening Dr Hughes. I hope you can help me determine whether I’ve had bad dental treatment or not? About 3 months ago I’ve had a crown placed on my upper front tooth. The temporary crown was fantastic and matched it well, unfortunately the permanent one is noticeably larger than the other teeth and it sticks out. My dentist told me it’s because my teeth are crowded and that I’ll get used to it.
I really disagree with him and have tried to get used to it but to no avail. Is it possible for me to send a picture to you to see if my dentist is trying to cover up bad dental work please? Many thanks.

My Daughters NHS Crown Is Too Bulky. Can She Have Her Crown Re-Done?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, I hope you can help me. My daughter who is 18 years old has had a white crown fitted by a NHS dentist. The treatment was free as she has had a baby within the last 12 months. The crown is much bigger than her other teeth, although it is fitted at the back of her lower teeth. The dentist realized that the crown was too big before he carried on with the treatment. He did not offer to re-size the tooth and asked my daughter if she wanted the crown or not. She had no alternative but to carry on with the procedure. Can she have her crown re-done? Thank you for your time.

I Recently Got New Crowns, But Now I Have A Lisp And They Feel Too Big For My Mouth. What Should I Do About This?

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Hughes. I went to my dentist so I could get a great smile but now I don’t even smile now and I hate talking as I have a lisp. The dentist put your new crowns along the top but one of the crowns is blue/grey in colour and I feel my teeth are too big and bulky for me. I hate speaking as have a lisp, so now not only do I not have the perfect smile but I can’t talk properly now either. I went back to my dentist and he said – Oh, I think they are fine and that I was paranoid when referring to my lisp. I am very upset about this and I would like to know what can be done. Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer me.

I Feel My Porcelain Crowns Are Too Bulky. Is It Possible To Thin Them Out?

Friday, December 6th, 2013
Q.

Hi, I would like to ask if it’s normal for the top part of a front crown, near the gum area to be bulky? It seems to be interfering with my lip when I close my mouth. I asked my dentist about this and they said it wasn’t possible to thin it out, they are porcelain crowns. I also have a dental bridge used for the crowns on all of my front 5 teeth. I strongly feel it makes me appearance look out of place with the bulkiness. I would like to get them re-done but there’s no way would I pay the amount I already paid for, if the bulkiness can be removed. What do you suggest?

I Had To Have Crowns At An Early Age After An Accident. I Don’t Like Them As They Are Bulky, What Would Be Best To Replace Them?

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. When I was 10 years old I had a accident and killed the nerve in my two front teeth, I ended up having them filled down and crowns put on both. 22 years later I have noticed the tops where my gum line is, looks grey and I have always felt the teeth don’t look natural, they are bulky and bigger than my other teeth. Am I able to get these replaced on the NHS? I have asked a dentist to do them once before and he said they did not need replacing. What is your opinion on this? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me with.
