Sir i got all my 28 teeth replaced with crowns for the purpose of teeth lengthening. Upper & lower molars(8) of Porcelain fused to Metal. Premolars of Zirconia(8). Incisors & canine (12)of Empress. And now after 2 months from the procedure done am having very much bad breath that its very much difficult to live with and even to breathe, and it tastes like vomit. Still after using mouthwash and brushing twice a day its not helpful and the smell is as it is. even i got done scaling but still the smell and taste of the teeth remains. Please tell me some solution that can be done now to get rid of this as its too much difficult to live like this. i am really helpless. And also tell me is it was right for the teeth lengthening??

There is something very wrong with your dental work. It my days of practice, I had several occasions to replace dental work done in other countries, and I frequently found poor dentistry with overhangs that would catch food or other basic defects.
The materials your dentist used sound first class. But if there are overhangs on all the crowns, that could produce the putrid smell that you’re experiencing. I can’t tell if that’s the case. There are other possibilities.
If this problem is allowed to remain, it will likely lead to gum disease and early loss of your teeth.
There are excellent dentists throughout the world. But I believe the consensus among the world’s dentists is that there is no place that has as high standards for dental care as the United States. So what I would look for would be a dentist in India with some credentials from an international organization based in the United States. A couple examples of that would be accreditation or some other credential from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (There are two accredited members of the AACD in Mumbai, India, and several accreditation candidates in the country), or fellowship or diplomate status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. There may be other credentials. I would track down a dentist with a credential like that and go there for an opinion on your case. Go to the website of the specific organization and they usually have a search tool for finding a credentialed member.
