I’m freaking out :( I got a permanent crown on my front tooth yesterday and it just does not fit right and I don’t know what to do. I got it done at the dental college and I’ve been a patient with them since February. My front tooth has always been messed up and ugly ever since a childhood accident. So after months of appointments and paying way more money than I can afford I finally got the crown yesterday. And it doesn’t fucking fit! I am so upset now, I just want to break down and cry.

I told them when they put it on that it didn’t feel right. It feels much thicker than my other teeth and when I bite down my bottom teeth bump into it. It just sticks out too far and it’s not shaped right, it’s not like the other front tooth. They said oh, don’t worry we’ll adjust the bite after it’s in. So they cement it in with the permanent cement, and yeah, it still sticks out too far. So then instead of adjusting the crown, which is all porcelain and is already stuck in there, they start filing down my bottom teeth! No permission from me to do that btw, they just stuck a burr in there and went at it. I freaked out and said oh, it’s good now! But it’s not :( I just ate lunch and every time I chew my bottom teeth bump into the crown. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want them filing down my bottom teeth any more, I can already feel how different the one they filed down feels compared to my other bottom teeth.


I’m crying at my desk at work now. Am I just screwed? Should I call the dental college again? I tried mentioning it to them before I left but my dental student just said if anything’s wrong she’ll take a look at it next month at my next appointment. I don’t want to put up with it being like this for the rest of my life, I can barely chew with the damn thing. Help?
