This nice lady had worn her teeth down from clenching and grinding. I took a 3D digital impression of her teeth, computer designed, printed and placed 4 upper anterior crowns.
This patient wasn’t happy with her upper 2 front teeth, and asked me to make her smile pretty. I made her beautiful zirconia crowns for her upper central incisors. Here’s the case photos:
On this patient I noticed decay under two 20 year old crowns on teeth #30 and 31. Removal of the old crowns revealed tooth #30 with deep decay sub-gingival into the root furcation. This tooth was non-restorable. I recommended extraction and an implant. For tooth #31, I was able to clean out the decay and do a crown build-up and make her a new crown.
The first x-ray above shows my initial try-in with a gap between the implant crown and implant. The crown would not fully seat, so I re-did the implant crown. The second x-ray, after re-doing the implant crown, shows a perfect fit!!! Both the implant crowns #30 and #31 fit and look beautiful.
This patient was hit in the mouth with a tennis racquet and broke his front tooth. The tooth also required a root canal, and periodontal crown lengthening surgery. I placed a temporary crown on the tooth for 2 months while the gums healed and did a computerized custom shade match to obtain a perfect color match.
For this patient today, I removed 2 porcelain fused to metal crowns that she recently had done in El Salvador, cleaned up the decay underneath, polished her other teeth, and placed 2 beautiful new zirconia crowns. She was so happy and has a beautiful smile for Christmas :-)))
