Cosmetic Crowns

 

Diagnosis

Original cosmetic crowns were done 10+ years ago with the best option available at the time - porcelain fused to metal crowns. Patient was unhappy with opaque unnatural appearance of the crowns. Over time as the gums receded, the metal substructure began to show as a dark line near the gums. 

 

Solution

Replace crowns with highly esthetic all porcelain restorations and porcelain fused to zirconia (a white metal) to eliminate dark lines from appearing again

Diagnosis

Years of wear on the lower front teeth created notches on the root surfaces and chewing edges of the teeth, which were stain magnets.The patient didn't like the discoloration of the lower front teeth and the aged appearance it gave.

Solution

Veneers placed on the lower front teeth to even out the biting surfaces, align teeth, and smooth the root surface so it doesn't trap stain
