shaping a tooth on a bridge?
ok, I will try and make this short. I had a bridge for 10 years but my teeth changed color and it didn't match any more. My dentist took the old bridge out and we went through getting a new bridge made. I told him that the last tooth felt too round compared to my other teeth so could he make the new teeth more like my own. He said yes and the day came to put the new tooth in, the color matched pretty good and I was sent on my way.
After I got home and as the evening went on, the 2 new teeth were almost exactly as before!, It feels so bad rubbing on my upper lip and I feel like I look like a snaggle tooth, compared to my other teeth. My question is can he sort of smooth those 2 teeth down?
I really don't want to go through all the discomfort of him pulling out the new bridge. Can't he just shape it alittle with the tools he has without taking off much of the veneer? Please if anyone knows let me know. I would like to find out here before I ask him, just to know if others have had anything like this happen. Thanks alot!
