    How can my front crowns be corrected
    I had twice my front teeth capped
    The teeth are too bulky even filed the second time
    The teeth have some huge paddings indermeath which bother my lower lips
    I have overbite- so these new crowns make everything even worse- I have more protruding teeth than before, I can't close my mouth as I used to, my lower lip contanly touches the underpadding ( day and night), my lips covering the upper teeth feel contantly dry and rubbing onto the new crowns makes it painful.I have to use vaseline every night to get some comfort on the upper lip, including on the inside. I am not happy. Thinking about orhtodontics to finally fix the problem. Please , help!

    I am thinking that before you had the crowns, you had an over-bite, correct? But the dentist who did the crowns, didn't address the over-bite and just fitted you with some very expensive crowns. That was not the way to handle the over-bite situation. Yes, now you will have to have braces to correct the problem, but you age may be the problem. Let me give this some further thought as to suggestions and address this thread again.

    How old are you by the way ?

    I am hoping our dental hygeinist Flossie will chime in here with your excellent input and I hope between the two of us we can sort this out, rumi.

    Definitely the dentist should have recommended orthodontics to correct the problem before doing the crowns. The bite is something that should be taken in to serious consideration before doing crowns on front teeth.

    May I ask why you had the crowns placed? Did the teeth have lots of fillings in them? Have they had root canals? Did they break?

    You have to take into consideration, rumi, that a diagnosis of your problem can't be given here. We can give you ideas and some guidance on finding a solution only. We are not periodontists or orthodontists here, but some of us have experience from working with specialists and Flossie has a lot of dental experience.

    Okay, in order to move forward we have to back track, therefore the 'what possibly should have been done' which really is guesswork as we can't see your mouth, the crowns in them and your problem with your lower lip from 'padding' (dont know what that means).

    My extreme suggestion is removal of the crowns and the teeth they are on as you have an overbite that is already set in bone and seeing as you are in your 40s will take considerable time to correct through orthodontics. Replacement of teeth crowns could be achieved with a bridge between the two incisors on each side of your front teeth, eliminating the over bite entirely and forever.

    Dental implants would not be an option because they would go back into the same bone that has already created the over bite.

    A solution ? Maybe? But you still have to see a specialist to determine exactly what can be done, either way, expensive.

    Orthodontics is probably the best way to go. Once the teeth have been corrected then new crowns can be made.
    I have seen women in their 70's have orthodontics, you are never too old but like tick says, it may just take a bit longer to get the teeth moved. It's not impossible though!

    I spoke with ortodontist 2 months ago- the md told me to do the restorative work FIRST, then go to them
    I did
    I will stick with their plan and I will have the dentist redo the crowns until I am satisfied

    I would suggest you wait until you get your braces on and have had some movement of the front teeth, you may not need to have the crowns redone once the teeth are in the ideal position.
