I have four crowns on my upper teeth and I had them for 3 1/2 years.I don't know the teeth numbers, but the lateral incisor crown is...strange. When I floss, I have to do it carefully because sometimes it's a little hard to get the flosser through. Just recently, I was flossing in that area and the flosser went right in. I didn't have to try anything and I was able to clean that gap area. It was the same for the other side of the lateral incisor. It went right in. When I floss again it goes back to where I have to take my time again. This has been happening a lot and I don't understand what is wrong. The crown doesn't feel loose.
I would've gone to my dentist, but he's in Florida for a week. What is wrong?
