Dental Crowns

The substitution of previous incongruous coronal restorations or the presence of elements that have undergone a considerable loss of dental structure often require complete dental crowns. The use of entirely ceramic materials allows the achievement of an ideal aesthetic result thanks to the absence of metal, used instead in the traditional metal-ceramic crowns.

My clinical cases

Replacement of ceramic metal crowns with integral ceramic crowns
Patient’s request

The patient had a very specific request: she no longer wanted to see that horrible outline and black line around her old prostheses. The black line was due to metal crowns. Being dark, that material tattooed the gum around the tooth with black over time and also makes visible the finishing margin of the crown itself.

Treatment and results

We prepared the teeth again under the old metal crowns, correcting the old preparations and replacing the bridges with full ceramic crowns. This material integrates perfectly with the tissues and neighboring teeth.

Improving the form and the color of teeth
Patient’s request

The patient did not like her smile, the yellow color and the shape of her teeth. Moreover, in the occlusal level a cross-shaped bite to the left had caused problems in the joint.

Treatment and results

After a careful study of the case we realized minimally invasive crowns, with which we were able to correct the defects, align the teeth, improve the shapes and whiten her teeth. We were also able to eliminate some joint problems by changing the occlusion and correcting his cross bite.

Central teeth reconstruction
Patient’s request

The patient had a fracture of the central teeth caused by a trauma.

Treatment and results

The three front teeth were devitalized and perfectly reconstructed with three full ceramic crowns. We also cured the gingiva and the parts of the patient’s gums involved in the trauma.

Central incisive fracture due to a trauma
Patient’s request

The patient had a fracture of the central incisor due to a trauma.

Treatment and results

In just two sessions we created a full ceramic crown with a minimally invasive technique with a thickness of 0.4mm.

Aesthetic correction of old fillings
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to improve the aesthetics of his smile because he didn’t like his old incongruous fillings and spread in his front teeth.

Treatment and results

Four full ceramic crowns were applied on the front teeth and the gingival levels were also generally harmonized.

Improve the aesthetics of the patient’s smile
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to improve the aesthetics of his smile, returning to smile without being ashamed.

Treatment and results

Several treatments and minor interventions for the recovery and rehabilitation of compromised teeth have been performed. Later, we covered his upper and lower teeth with full ceramic crowns. In the lower sector of the front a laser whitening session was performed to uniform the color.

New integral ceramic crowns
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to improve the aesthetics of his smile because he did not like the cheap and low-quality full ceramic crowns that had been previously put on his central teeth.

Treatment and results

Two new correctly performed all-ceramic crowns were applied and the gingival levels of the two central teeth were harmonized.

New integral ceramic crowns
Patient’s request

The patient wanted to improve the aesthetics of his smile because he did not like the old ceramic crown, which was incongruous, infiltrated and with visible unacceptable tooth alterations in terms of both color and shape.

Treatment and results

In order to solve the problem a single all-ceramic crown was applied.

Fractured tooth reconstruction
Patient’s request

The patient had a devitalized and fractured canine tooth due to an incorrectly performed amalgam reconstruction.

Treatment and results

A full ceramic crown was applied on the root of the devitalized tooth
