Home » Single crown on upper front tooth – Challenging case

Initial

After removal of crown

Female patient , 40, requests replacement of failed crown on upper front tooth
Existing tooth after removal of crown is considered quite dyschromic. Case is evaluated in regards to shape and colour, therefore additional steps must precede final restoration

Intermediate – Microsurgery & temporarization

Final – Metal-free ceramic crown

In order to enhance tooth proportions and to reduce over-exposure of gums (gummy smile), microsurgery applied. Immediate duplicate of natural tooth fabricated on single acrylic temporary restoration
Final restoration , emax crown by Ivoclar, was fabricated in a manner that fully replicates shape and colour of adjacent tooth
