Dark Lines Caused by Crowns

Removing A Dark Line Caused by A Crown:  Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Dark lines around the crownDo you have a dark line around the age of your dental crown? Do you wish there was something your dentist could do to remove it?  Here at Bluebonnet Dental Care, we can remove the dark lines around your crown and help you to have a beautiful and healthy smile.

The unsightly dark lines that appear around your crown tooth are there because there is metal underneath. The use of metal allows the dentist to provide you with more strength to your crown or bridge.

However, when this metal coping becomes exposed, that is when the dark lines appear. This is especially true when porcelain is fused mettle on the crown.

As a reassurance, your natural teeth will never have this dark rim around the gum tissue. When we see someone with a dark line around the tooth, we immediately know the tooth is unnatural and has had dental work.

If you have a dark line around one of your crowns, we have a perfect solution for you. We will replace the old dental crown with a porcelain crown.

If you choose to fix the dark lines, we must remove the existing crown and replace it with one made with all porcelain material. If you have more than one crown to replace, we can customize in color match your teeth with consistency and precision.

If you are weighing the advantages and disadvantages of all-porcelain vs. metal crowns, we provide some insight here:

  • Porcelain crowns are strong and aesthetically-pleasing.
  • Our all-porcelain dental crowns are good options for your front teeth, which are fully exposed every time you smile; whereas, metal crowns are better options for your molars (back teeth).
  • Plus, if you are allergic to metal, all-porcelain dental crowns are the best solution for you.

If you would like to fix your unpleasant dark lines, we encourage you to schedule your appointment with us by calling 225-376-6164.
