One visit crown: If your dentist has a cerec system, he can numb the tooth only once, prepare the tooth, take an impression with a laser 3d camera and fabricate the crown in about 8 minutes.

Can a dentist cause you to get gum recession with a teeth cleaning or using too much force on teeth or gums in a teeth cleaning? or use something else
No: Gum recession and periodontal disease occurs over a long period of time, not in the 1/2 hour or forty five minutes you sit in the dental chair, possibly twice per year.

Don't blame your dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can a dentist give you gum recession or anything with dental cleanings if she doesnt like you after asking her to reclean your teeth free of charge ?
No: Your dentist cannot give you gum recession. If your gum tissue was inflammed and swolen prior to your cleaning it may be possible that as the inflammation caused by the plaque and tartar goes down after having it cleaned off your teeth, it may seem like you have a small amount of recession, but that would not be a negative reflection on your dentist. That's why you have your teeth cleaned! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Does brushing your teeth with baking soda and braces on cause your teeth to be discolored when you get your braces off later?
No: Keeping your teeth clean is the key to not having issues later when the braces come off. Baking soda is good for managing gum issues but it lacks Fluoride which is helpful to prevent decay especially while wearing braces. I'd suggest avoiding any bleaching of your teeth while the braces are on as the enamel under the brackets won't change color and you could end up with dark spots. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
