First of all, I live in France, so if possible, I'd like to speak to a French dentist
? En francais si necessaire. Anyhow, my problem is that I have just come from my dentist who is putting a crown
on my rear upper molar
on my right side. Today he was the final fitting. Two problems
. First, he chipped the crown whilst fitting it, so he said he would send it back to have them 'put a bit of ceramic
on it' ?!!! So he's going to fit me with a chipped and repaired crown? Second, and this is by far more serious, when the crown is in my mouth, my teeth close only on that tooth. That is to say, I have no contact other than on that tooth when my mouth is closed. I told him this, and he said that I was wrong (!!), that the crown is perfectly fitted and that I have full contact everywhere. Using his blue paper things he showed me that there were blue marks on my teeth, which to him, proves that I have full contact. But for me, when I close my mouth, the only tooth that actually closes is that one crown. So then, as I was insistent that this was the case, he started filing down my bottom molar (quite a lot!) in order for the crown to fit. That didn't work. In the end, he was simply insistent that the crown fits, that he is sending it back to get the chip repaired and so next Tuesday I am supposed to go back and get that crown fitted.
Am I out of my mind or should I insist that he is wrong?
