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.
