Replacing Old Crowns

Retracted view of patient's old crowns Retracted view of 7 new crowns and whitening

Teeth are whitened first so that new restorations will be matched to the whitest shade of natural teeth. Then the front 7 teeth were crowned or veneered to create a more aesthetic, younger-looking smile for this patient. The edges of the teeth were elongated so that more teeth show in the natural smile. The gum tissue was raised slightly and evened out with the laser. The new restorations are all porcelain to eliminate the metallic collars at the gum line, and the porcelain was carefully and artistically created in gradated shades for a more natural-looking, less bulky appearance.
