Bigger tooth cap
I went for a root canal treatment 4 years ago. The old half broken front tooth was removed and a new cap was fixed. The new cap near the gum area is bigger than the original teeth size. It is very evident when I smile or talk. Should I go and change my cap for a better one which doesn't come out so distinctively.

You should re-visit the treating dentist and explain him the problem which you are facing and ask him if it can be corrected.

A good photograph of ure concern would help us to better understand the irregularity. Excellent aesthetic options like zirconia are available. Digital cad cam preparations are more accurate for achieve symmetrical and near real crowns

Hello there. I can understand your concern.  Without seeing i cannot say anything. It might be alright for you but you might just be feeling that its big. Anyways, consult a dentist in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
