Zirconia caps do not change colour and especially not in a brief duration of 1 week.... The shade matching is normally done in concordance with the patient's opinion, because once fabricated, change of shade is not possible to a great extent...... this is almost next to impossible if the dentist has to remove the crown and change the shade..... the only option that you are left with is removing this crown and getting a new crown made..... please consult your dentist so that he can evaluate whether any extrinsic deposits have accumulated on the crown which can be removed...... Regards.....
Dear Practo User,
If the shade of the crown(cap) is not matching to the adjacent teeth then you can get it replaced easily. Kindly visit the doctor from where you have get it done. I am sure he will help you in this matter. Regards Dr Ankit Jain Arham Dental Care, Delhi
Generally dentist takes proper shade of adjacent teeth before sending a prescription to laboratory. Also cement color make some changes in the shade of cap. If it's monolithic zirconia then shade is a tiny bit different. Visit your dentist who will guide you the best.
