After having a crown (lower pre-molar) adjusted to fit in with my bite, there remains a rough edge where the glaze on the side meets the filed back top of the crown. It it where the top of the crown meeds the side that is beside the neighbouring molar. And it is slightly below the other tooth iykwim? It irritates the side of my tongue quite badly and I have been covering it with gum for relief.
I have had a dentist look at it and he smoothed some of it with a few different disks and said that was more or less the best he could do as he could not get in at the rest of the area with his instruments and I may have to consider a new crown or remove the filling in the molar beside it to gain access. This seems a little extreme to me!
There is still a sharp/rough bit left. I can just about feel it if I click my finger nail over it. Could it really be impossible to smooth it off? I don't even want it polished, just smoothed so that I don't have that irritation to my tongue. I can floss there easily enough so couldn't he use those finishing strips to get in there?? Would it ever be the case that a dentist would not have any of these on the premises??
Any advice greatly appreciated and thanks for reading!
