Bite discomfort and tightness after front crown replacement.

Apr 9, 2023
Hi I had a crown replacement on my front 7,8,9 teeth.
I had the previous crowns for 15 years.

After my new crown went in, my bite goes off every time I chew.
I have had had a bunch of adjustments and there are no high points.

Every time I chew, I feel pressure on the front crowns, its almost like they shift forward.
After i stop chewing for 30 mins, my bit goes back to normal and it feel ok again.

The crowns don't look tight and i can floss between them. I have been to a second doctor and they tell me that they look fine.
It drives me crazy every time i chew.
The doctor that did the crown is pretty good and it wasn't cheap. He keeps telling me wear a mouth guard when tell him about the pressure and i get dismissed
I did not have this problem with my previous crowns, or the temporary's that were put in.
I added pics of the crowns for reference.

Does anyone know what could be the problem?

I would appreciate any feedback.

One of those cases that can't easily be diagnosed in this type of forum. The only comment I can make is that the cingula of the incisors seem quite bulbous. You would have to use articulating paper and try lateral and protrusive movements. Send us another pic straight on with your teeth close.
