Dental crowns

Dental crowns are permanent tooth covers that are cemented to chipped, cracked or broken teeth to improve their appearance and function.

Can I get a cemented crown adjusted while in my mouth permanently now?

Steven Bader (Newton Centre, MA) on Mar 23, 2012
Absolutely. It is common for crowns to need a small amount of adjustment after cementation. When your mouth is numb you often do not bite down all the way while the dentist puts the crown in.

Yes, the bite can be adjusted.

Yes,as the adjustment is minor and does not remove too much of the porcelain off the crown. If too much of the crown material is removed, it will weaken the material and be prone to fracture.

If your bite doesn't feel good when chewing then go back to your dentist for a post-op adjustment. This is very common and can be accomplished with a minute adjustment of the crown.

Yes. No problem. It is done all the time.
