A 44-year-old member asked:

what different between jacket crown and full veneer crown?

3 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Eric Eltzroth
Dentistry 23 years experience
Same Thing: A crown typically covers the whole tooth all the way around down to the gums. A veneer on the other hand typically only covers the front of the tooth.
Dr. James Merrett
Dentistry 29 years experience
Veneer Or Jacket: These are 2 names for the same thing. These are usually made of ceramic or porcelain. A full veneer and a jacket crown is like saying soft drinks and sodas. There is a new term coming out also which is a crowneer. It really can also depend how much tooth structure is being cover with porcelain or ceramic.
Dr. Paul Grin
Pain Management 36 years experience
No Difference: It is essentially the same product and the same procedure.

A 24-year-old member asked:

How do I clean my crown on my teeth?

Dr. Joseph De Santi
Family Medicine 29 years experience
Crowning Achievement: Crown care is essentially the same as routine dental care. Use a dental paste for polishing and removing soft plaque along with a regular flossing. A device such as a waterpik® will provide pressurized water to flow above/below the crown/gingival interface to remove food particles and prevent odor. An oral rinse will finish the job. Remember to avoid staining foods and juices.

Crohn's Disease: Crohn's disease affects the digestive system. It can have the following symptoms stomach pain, diarrhea, blood in your bowel movements, weight loss, underweight, slowed growth(kids) or fever. Eye, skin and joint problems can sometimes be found. These symptoms can overlap with other problems as well. So, this is usually diagnosed by a GI specialist.

What could be the possible causes of my crown hurting if had root canal there?

Dr. Peter Kurzweil
Internal Medicine 50 years experience
Crown has to be out.: Any cavity or infection must be expose to air and drained, fast. A close space will lead to major problem. If a fully proper root canal problem was performed, there shouldn't be pain or discomfort, except for few days after the work. Again, get ye back to the dentist.
A 48-year-old member asked:

Is there a longterm type veneer that works if gums recede?

7 doctor answers16 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jake Richards
Dentistry 12 years experience
No special one: Receding gums means the root of the tooth is exposed and the root is not covered with enamel. Veneers bond best to enamel but can be bonded to dentin/root, but not as well. Talk with your dentist about the options.
