Its about the ceramic cap
Hi, So the problem is, At the age of 15 I had 3-4 uneven teeth in my upper jaw which use to look bad when I smile. I think that was the worst decision of my life that I opted for ceramic caps. Even the doctor I met came out to be money minded which I got to know later. So now I have front 6 teeths with ceramic crowns of it. I am not at all satisfied, they look unnatural, and they have covered the pink flesh of my gums and now when I smile only the upper gum shows which looks blueblack in color. I have consulted once to a dentist who asked me to opt full ceramic crown as at the moment there is on the metal inner side and ceramic on outer side of the crown. Which I think will might solve the natural look problem of the teeth but the gum probelm will remain the same. *Now my question is, should I go for dental implants for the front 6 teeths so that they look more natural. And also the pink flesh of my gums will be visible if I opt for dental implants?

Hello, you need to consult a periodontist for your gum problem as there are many options available today to correct the same.Also visit a cosmetic dentist for opinion regarding All Ceramic Crowns,which are esthetically much better than PFM crowns. Regards Dr Sumanmakam

Ha ha Dental Implants are only for people whose teeth cannot be saved or people without teeth. You have your teeth so just get some gumline corrections done with lasers only if required or just proper tooth preparations with proper gum margins by a good prosthodontist can solve your problem with all ceramic crowns.
Next Steps
Visit an experienced prosthodontist & periodontist

Hi sir/madam If u have natural teeth in upper jaw then pls dont go for implants. Implant is best choice in case of replacement of missing teeth. The pink flesh u see is may be gum infection due to irregular margins of ur ceramic cap.
Next Steps
Full ceramic( metal free) caps are always good choice. You can go for that but before capping pls visit periodontist for gum examination 😊

Dear sir. Your concern over the metal exposure (blueblack colour) near d gums can be corrected with all ceramic crowns as suggested by other doctors. Too much gum exposure when u smile can also be corrected by minor gum surgeries iff otherwise your jaws are fine. Implants are the best treatment for replacing missing teeth. Now coming to the first part of your query! Any doctor will only suggest you the treatment options possible for that particular condition of the patient n it is his/her choice to decide on what treatment he/she can undergo!! Since you yourself accepted that treatment you cannot blame the doctor for the treatment! The fee we charge are for the accepted treatment procedures we do.

Hello, First of all its not clear whether the doctor suggested you for orthodontic treatment and u opted for the metal ceramic caps. Whats soever, you had accepted for the treatment suggested by the doctor and therefore i think its not right to blame the doctor money minded. 2. You can get your crowns replaced to a all ceramic crowns. All ceramic crowns are again very expensive and please dont blame your doctor for that. Quality comes with price. 3. Going for dental implants again is not going to solve your problem as the problem is with the crown of the teeth and also again its more expensive... 4. The gum issue can always be corrected by gingivoplasty and gingival depigmentation procedures.
Next Steps
visit a prosthodontist

Hi. As I understand your problem is too much of gums showing when you smile which are dark in colour. There are procedures to make that more pleasing in appearance such as crown lengthening, lip repositioning and orthodontics. The darkish colour at the margins may be because of improper positioning of the caps or pigmentation, both of which can again be corrected.  However, changing your caps from metal ceramic to full ceramic will help only if you are dissatisfied with the colour of the crowns or feel the metal darkness shows through at the margins. My advice would be to consult a prosthodontist for the crowns and a periodontist for the gums. Good hands from multiple specialities may give you the best smile.
