Cosmetic Dental Crowns

Extensively destroyed teeth need to be crowned. The crown covers the entire tooth above the gum. They can be made in a variety of materials, but whenever possible, we prefer the latest ‘all-ceramic’ crowns which show no dark margins and are indistinguishable from the natural tooth. This is achieved by using computer design and manufacture to create a strong, thin ceramic base which, unlike the traditional metal base, allows light to shine through and creates a natural lifelike appearance with no dark margins.

See some examples where we have used cosmetic crowns to replace old fashioned metal ceramic crowns…

Case 8

This patient was unhappy with the staining and white spots on her natural teeth. The crowns made in porcelain fused to metal were very unattractive, being the wrong size, shape and colour.

The natural teeth were bleached and microabraded.
The gum levels were uneven, so microsurgery was performed to raise the height of the tooth on the left.
The crowns were replaced with two beautiful e max porcelain restorations, of the correct form and shade, layered to create natural translucency, creating a harmonized smile.
