My dentist has advised me to have a crown put on my upper 1st premolar, which was treated 12 years ago with a root canal. The tooth is completely intact, and since the treatment I have had no problems. I am concerned getting a crown may create more problems for a unproblematic tooth, for example decay may happen under the crown. Is the crown necessary in this instance?

Hi, I was one of the many children treated by the NHS and given tetracycline which discoloured my teeth. I am 49 years old, with 12 old crowns ( now discoloured with a little gum recession). The overall look of my téeth has affected my confidence socially. My dentist says that I can't replace because of possible complications ( root canal etc). Am I stuck with these dreadful teeth or is there anything I can do to improve them?...

I am 30 years old and have had a porcelain crown on my second last bottom molar since my early teens. The gum has slowly receded over time so you can see silver around the porcelain, now I can see some of the original tooth where the gum has receded. I was prompted to look because the gum felt a bit tender when I was brushing. Is this bad??

I've just had my permanent crown fitted on one of my front teeth. It feels bulky and when I chew my lower teeth grinds into the rim where the crown attaches to the gum, it's so uncomfortable. I went back to the dentist and she filed it off and shorten it but I still don't like it at all. Even the colour does not match the rest of my teeth. Could u pls advise me what to do I'm desperate!!!

I have lost the upper part of the back lower left molar but my dentist can save the tooth with a crown which is good news. He has also found hairline cracks on the rear right molar and he has proposed using a crown before this too fractures. I am happy with these proposed treatments. I have been given the option of a stainless steel crown at £350, metal free porcelain at £595 and 60% gold at £750. I would get a 10% discount as...

Hi I had unstraight front teeth and asked my dentist about straightening them, he suggested crowns. I went ahead and had them done about 2 years ago. I'm not happy, the colour is yellow, one sticks out slightly, they feel too far forward and that affects my speech (I spray spit) I'm now totally conscious of them, rarely smile or chat as it's so embarrassing. I also have gum disease which I'm trying to get under control. I've s...

I am 23 years old and have my upper and lower jaws are a little disinclined, though it doesn't look odd. I had an injury few months ago and my front 2 teeth got damaged. I was planning for ceramic crowning on my 4 front teeth. I am concerned that would the ceramic crowns on my already bulge out teeth make my upper jaw look more bulged out?
