Answers to some the of questions we’ve been asked most often

Improving the appearance of front tooth crowns

Q. I only have one crown but it is on my front tooth. It is not a perfect match with my other front tooth. How can it be improved?

A. Firstly, it is vital that you consult with a dentist who is experienced with cosmetic dentistry. At Space Healthcare our dental team are ideally suited to discuss your options with you. Usually you will need to have the crown replaced. However, it’s not always an easy task to perfectly match a single front crown to your other teeth, but it can be achieved. High quality digital photographs, careful shade taking and possibly a visit from the dental technician can all help to ensure that the result is absolutely fantastic.

How can I improve the appearance of my front tooth crown?

Q. I have a crown on my front tooth which has been there for years and it is really ugly! It has a black line around it where it meets my gum. Why is this?

A. First of all, you don’t have to put up with an unattractive crown anymore!

At Space Healthcare our clinical team can advise you on a wide range of highly aesthetic crown options that can really enhance your smile.

The reason that you have a black line around your crown is most likely due to your gum receding over the years and exposing the edge of the crown where the underlying grey metal is shining through to give the black appearance.

Alternatively you may have a discoloured root or some tooth decay affecting the root beneath the crown.

Replacing a wobbly crown

Q. How much would it cost to have one front tooth which has a worn out wobbly cap on it treated?

A. The first thing to do is have a dental examination so that the reason your crown is wobbly can be diagnosed.

Once a diagnosis has been made, we can then discuss  and evaluate options for treatment. We would be delighted to see you at dentalSpace to examine your teeth and fully assess the situation.
