This patient presented with severe enamel erosion and associated wear and fractures.  She was unhappy with the color and esthetics of her front teeth. To protect her teeth and improve esthetics, ceramic crowns were fabricated from canine to canine. Color was chosen to match her existing posterior crown restorations. Our dental laboratory fabricated beautiful crowns that resulted in a magnificent smile and facial appearance.

PFkPatient presented with failed composite bondings on his two front teeth. He was unhappy with the esthetics, and form and function was compromised. To protect his teeth and improve esthetics, ceramic crowns were fabricated on his two front teeth only.

Before and after of a patients collapsing bite.

This patient demonstrates a collapsing bite, which wore down his teeth significantly. When closing, he completely covered his lower teeth, exposing them to even more wear. Bite collapse is a medical condition that is characterized by a change in the structure of the patient’s teeth, facial features, and jaw position because of tooth loss or severe wearing down of the teeth. The bite was opened substantially and restored to a healthy level with porcelain crowns resulting in a much younger smile and facial appearance.

This patient began with two front teeth having old crowns and a history of trauma to one of them. This trauma turned the underlying tooth charcoal in color. Both crowns were removed, and well-matched, symmetrical crowns were placed to present a beautiful smile.
