Tooth crown black line

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown black line


Avatar f tn My dentist at the time used a lab to create the crown and it matched perfectly. The crown had developed a black line across the top, so recently I whitened my teeth and had the crown replaced. I'm on my fifth crown, and it still doesn't match my other teeth. My current dentist grinds the tooth in his office. He has tried coloring it himself, and he has brought someone in to color it, but we still have an obvious mismatch when it's done (too gray, too white, too creamy).
Avatar n tn Six months to a year ago I had a root canal and a full crown set on what was left of a tooth. I have now noticed a a black line that is running around the bottom of the crown between the crown and the gum. The bottom of the crown never went into the gum and it still doesn't. What is this black line from? (there is not pain).
Avatar n tn potential for decay of the tooth at the gum line and should the crown not have extended to the gum line? If the crown is to extend to the gum line, then what is the exceptable or typical reveal of the tooth if any? Thank you!
Avatar n tn however, after my regular cleaning from my dentist, I noticed that my procelain crown does not cover my entire tooth like my old one and now it shows some black color near the gum line. So, my question is: Do I need to call my dentist to have it fixed? or I need the crown to be replaced?
Avatar m tn I just noticed the crown I had placed about a yr ago is black only on the upper part inside of my mouth. Its not a small line that would be the metal of the crown but comes down 1/4 of the way. This is only on the inside of the tooth and not exposed to the outside visible part I only noticed this because my gum above was peeling and I took a look. Any ideas on what this could be - I plan to try and see a dentist tomorrow!!! Kind of freaking me out!!!
Avatar f tn Usually the crown can be adjusted to fit, if not, it may need to be re-made. The black line showing may be the metal of the crown showing underneath. The temporary crown usually isn't a perfect fit so it can cause some problems for the gums if its in place too long such as minor gum recession. Its possible that with some gum recession, the margin of the crown where it meets the tooth is showing instead of hiding underneath the gumline. As for the soreness, I can only guess why.
Avatar n tn He said it could be fractured and if so let's hope it is side ways so the tooth can hold a post. He did all the crown prep work that day, July 31. It felt fine with the pain & no problem. I went back 2 wks later to have the crown pot in. The dentist had a terrible time getting the temp. out tugging and pulling. Finally it came out. He put the crown in to see the fit. The height was fine but it was too wide.
Avatar n tn If i rub my finger against the crown, it smells pretty bad. I also notice that there is a thin black line where the crown is cemented, which i just attributed to staining by coffee etc, but am now wondering if it is something i should be concerned about. There is no pain or discomfort. Any suggestions ?
Avatar f tn I have a fistula after having a root canal. I was told to go to an oral surgeon for an apicoectomy. As I feel around near my crown, I feel a "ridge" or almost like a line where the crown meets my actual tooth on the inside of my mouth. The crown does not seem to go all the way up to the gum. I've noticed a black mark all around the top of the tooth. I just went for a cleaning and no one mentioned anything about it.
Avatar f tn I have had a bottom molar crown for over ten years and have just noticed a black line on the bottom inner side of it. Is this normal or is this something to be worried about? It doesn't hurt but I'm wondering if its loose or if the blackness is infection.
Avatar n tn Today I noticed that there is a sizable black spot on the same tooth between the crown and the gum line. I have an appointment with the dentist in three weeks. Since there is no pain, is it okay to wait until the appointment to have it checked out, or should I try to get in earlier? The dentist I have the appointment with is someone I've never seen before, but I've heard very good things about him.
Avatar n tn yeah, it's a good procedure, strengthens the teefers for sure, it's sure better and cheaper than getting a crown so do it if you can before that happens. I would hazard that in most cases it's not an invasive procedure so I guess you could do it on tx, though you should consult an expert of course.
Avatar f tn There was no pain at all with the composite, so he said he'd have to mold the tooth for holding a crown because he was afraid that if I didn't crown the tooth that the composite would not hold. The tooth was 95% there before the dental prep. Before the mold was taken the dentist said he had to grind my tooth off down to where the crown would fit. During the procedure I could rub my tongue over that tooth and feel the tooth had been drilled down to within 1/8 to 1/4 inch of my gums.
Avatar f tn Four implants are ideal , but soft tissue (gingiva) may not be restored as natural looking gum. Black triangle may be present after tooth replacement. Papilla regeneration surgery may be needed to achieve optimal cosmetic results. Alternatively, if tooth #8 and 9 are pontics, it's much easier to fabricate a natural looking tooth. Full ceramic crown is not a good restoration for implant, because the implant abutment is metal, which may compromise the shade of ceramic crown.
Avatar m tn An implant replaces a missing tooth. How one can see it and how doesn't even mention a missing tooth confuses me a little.
Avatar n tn Would this be a good choice or would veneers be sufficient?
Avatar n tn I took another x-ray today, and I saw something on the tooth like a faint black line which looks like the a root. Treated root canals are very obvious to x-rays. But this one looks like it is not treated. The doctor looked at it and he did not tell me anything about what I noticed. The medical assistant saw the same thing. He said I might have a fracture he could not see, and recommended that I should byte the bullet and get a crown, which will help hold the tooth in place.
Avatar f tn What i have isn't even a crown yet it's just my own tooth and this dentist's office doesn't have the newer LED dental lights. In my area most people with my insurance only have a few dentists to pick from. Most only take private insurance. I didn't know crowns only have a life span of 7-10 yrs because I've had two others on my eye teeth for at least 15 years I musst be doing something right. But he never mentioned those crowns just my front tooth.
Avatar n tn i also had a crown placed after i had my braces off when i was 16 and that crown, i can see a black line behind my teeth. i am so scared i cant sleep or eat or do my homework any more. i cannot afford dentistry and there are also lines behind my front teeth. please help me i called many dentist office and they all denied seeing me because i cannot afford it. i have looked into care credit and that may be an option but i am so scared of the procedures and losing all my teeth.
Avatar n tn - About the blackish line in between the 2 right teeth (but shows), could it have been where he drilled too far into the crown before he cemented it on my tooth? - Is it normal to take this long for the gums to come down over the teeth or will they ever? - I failed to mention that the crowns are over my gums on the backs. Is this normal? Thanks so much for having this website for people to come to and get help or advice on such critical matters.
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for your advice. I had some food lodged in between my tooth and a crown. This happened on Friday, October 28th. This has happened before and, normally, any food would've ejected itself overnight but, this time, it took 2 days too many so I was getting concerned because the pain was getting intense. I found this site this morning and started the warm salt water treatments to try to reduce the swelling and rubbed a couple of ice cubes over the area.
Avatar m tn Went to another dentist last week, no further black spots or bone damage. He suggested to see if the tooth is alive he drills a core into the tooth, replace the filling and put a temporary crown on with no anaesthetic. The latter does not sound like great troubleshooting to me? I don’t think it’s worth disturbing the top half of the tooth unnecessarily. Current state of the tooth - no pain biting down on it (never has been).
Avatar n tn Mamaamw, it was "Colgate Orabase" that I used which helped with the pain. Rub it around the gum line of the wisdom tooth. Maybe use a Q-tip as if you get some on your cheek or other areas, or tongue for that matter, it makes it crazy numb..Maximum strength Orabase though. I was mistaken on the name above. Hang in there, get the tooth extracted and root canal done ASAP. The longer you wait, the longer it will take you to get back on track with your recovery..
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist today and found out that I have one 8mm pocket (my front tooth, out of all) and the rest are between 3-5. I'm also going to have to get a crown on a tooth which has a crack in it. I've had bleeding gums for well over a year, but I had actually gone to the dentist for other reasons; root canals etc...when I asked about my gums, I was just told to floss and brush my teeth more often! Now it has advanced to this...
Avatar f tn That was yesterday, this morning I washed my hair with baby shampoo and conditioned it again, putting in a regular amount but making sure to get the crown of my head which is an area I normally avoid because my hair is so fine. It is over 12 hours later and my hair does not have a bit of waxy or greasy feeling to it! I know this sounds totally counter intuitive, but at least give it a try, you've got nothing to lose except icky hair!!!! Let me know if this works!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn I have been plagued with tooth decay, bone loss, and gum recession problems over the decades, and some of the tooth 'decay' turns out to really be tooth and bone 'resorption'. Which is a syndrome where the teeth start eroding away within, or at the root, due to 'unknown' autoimmune processes. Read the dental literature on resorption, then consider that HCV probably triggers localized autoimmune reactions in the teeth and gums, causing this 'erosion'.
Avatar m tn That's when the dentist decided to take the crown off (he couldn't tell anything from the X-ray; the crown was n the way of seeing my actual tooth). He ended up having to pull the split tooth. He told me to come back for a bridge of something once it has healed but "No Thanks!" I'll leave the spot empty because empty doesn't become infected and stink up a whole room......
Avatar f tn A cone beam ct scan revealed an inflammatory process in the sinus above the implant and apical periodontal inflammation on the tooth behind the implant which was also giving me night fevers. I have since had the root canal retreated on the tooth that was being blamed for my mouth discomfort.
660300 tn?1224793961 What should she do? Her perminant crown has not been installed yet. Should she see a nerve doctor before the perminant crown is installed? Her docter indicated that she may have reveived too much novocan. Could this be the problem?
