Crowns are shifting out of place – how to fix it?

Da Vinci's Principle Of Proportion

In the past two months, I’ve noticed that one of my crowns sticks out more than the other one. I have four crowns on my front teeth. Can a retainer fix it? What can I do?

Crowns are shifting out of place

Answer :

From your photo, it looks like your left front tooth is sticking out, and your midline is off.

I would advise you to check your bite and occlusion, especially to see if you have a balanced bite, and after seeing an orthodontist for a consult.

We need much more information to go into the details of what can be done. A complete evaluation with X-rays and molds with bite analysis is necessary.

As far as fixing the shifted crowns, a retainer might help, but then you have to ask if the result will be permanent or if you need to wear the retainers for many years to come. I would ask for a permanent solution, and while you are at it, possibly fix the midline.
