I need three crowns on teeth 8, 9, &10. How important is tooth #7's crown? The tooth is healthy. Will a crown ruin it?
8 months ago
after a fall, 6 teeth were splinted to hold 3. Tooth 9 &10 had root canals within less than 48 hrs. Tooth #8 is badly chipped and now has filling/bonding. Per xrays, teeth are stable and healing appropriately. My dentist suggests getting a crown tooth #7 too so it looks better cosmetically. How much of a difference will it make to get the 4th crown. I was told if it's not done with other three, then it probably won't match if done in the future.

Depending on the color of your existing teeth, you can do either three or four crowns. Normally doing all four at the same time will result in better cosmetic results. I would like to see a photo of your smile in order to give you better advice.
