Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I just recently had an RCT and crown placed on the upper front tooth. Now, there is a gap between my two front teeth. Can the crown be adjusted now?

Answered by Dr. Vijeta Singh

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

After capping, it is very difficult to adjust the crown because it may lead to misalignment of the crown with respect to occlusion. There is another method by which you can close the gap between tooth like composite filling between tooth leaving the cervical area or another method is to repeat the capping procedure. Please share your pictures of the front tooth which will help me guide you more.

Thank you.

The Probable causes

Treatment failure.

Treatment plan

The composite filling between tooth leaving the cervical area or another method is to repeat the capping procedure.
