Crown Placement Issues
I previously had a crown done and I feel like it is incorrectly positioned. When I look in the mirror I can see the edge of the crown at the gum line (It is totally separated). Is the crown suppose to be so obvious. It is noticed everywhere I go. It feels too bulky. I can also see the peg in the posterior section. What should I do?
If you are not satisfied, you should let your dentist know and give them an opportunity to make you happy. If he/she can not resolve the issue , you should make an appointment with a new dentist.
