Two other options are a crown or having to live with some wear facets on your teeth. ...Read more

Jaw is just really sore. Teeth feel trapped into changing occlusion. Are my teeth moving around? Had light tooth bonding and polishing front teeth set

Bite effects jaws: If jaw soreness occurred after the bonding procedure, than a slight excess of material on the back of the upper front teeth or top of the lower front teeth can cause a premature contact that can alter the muscle pattern of lower jaw closure, and create the symptoms you describe. Ask your dentist to re-evaluate the occlusal contacts of your front teeth for heavy contacts. ...Read more

It's a result of not having a good seal with the temp crown and usually not a cavity. You commonly see this if the temp crown has been in place for some time where the seal is bad. ...Read more
