Question:

Loved Ones Dentist.

I have 2 months ago got crowns on front teeth for cosmetic reasons. These are according to the dentist temporarily fixed, as I had to get used to them first. The one is lopsided and goes 3mm out over the other. This should now be made, and we have agreed to do both to fully ceramic crowns instead of the metalkeramiske as the dentist had first chosen. I am just so terribly nervous, that my own teeth become loose, when the crowns lirkes of. It seems like they sit very firm.I don't know which glue the dentist used. But my biggest nightmare is to suddenly lose my front teeth completely. Can you help with your experience in this area.

Kind regards, B

Answer:

Dear B,

There is surely no reason to be so nervous. Often the crowns sit very tightly when you have put them temporarily on. But there is no reason to your own teeth would go loose. If that were the case, then would your dentist hardly suggest this treatment.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Can you remove a temporary crown?

Question:

dear Dentist

I have made crowns for my front teeth for cosmetic reasons. Since the one unfortunately is skewed and is 3 mm longer than the other, I must have made them. When I got them fitted for approx. 5 weeks ago, we agreed that they were cemented temporarily, so I could get used to them, and only correct if it was necessary.This proved to a be a good idea, as they now must change, but I'm somewhat concerned as to whether you possibly can remove them again without it going out over my own teeth sitting in it. The crown feels as though they are sitting very firmly, I feel. Maybe it's silly to worry about, but it plagues me however part. I have no idea what the dentist has used to cement with.Thank you in advance.

The nervous

Answer:

Dear nervous,

I do not think that you need to be nervous. It is impossible for me to know what your dentist has used as a temporary cement, but the crowns that are temporarily put on, is usually to get by without problems.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
