I had a new porcelain crown fitted to my front tooth 2 years ago, a couple of days ago part of it chipped off, been to dentist and have been told I have a severe infection in the root that the steel post attached to my crown and the whole thing needs to be extracted! I’m devastated because I am terrified of dentists, is this the only solution? They have said I will need a false denture. Surely there is another method? Whilst I am not vain I hate the thought of a denture with 1 front tooth just yet, I have no pain what so ever, no problems with it before apart from this tiny piece that as broken off which makes 1 of my front teeth a little rough and rubbing on my bottom lip, but they told me if I don’t have it done now I will end up with a bad abscess which will result in the same thing happening but obviously I will suffer more pain.
