A patient came to me interested in replacing four porcelain crowns on her top, front-four teeth. These crowns had been placed by another dentist after a rollerblading accident. The patient was not happy with the color and felt they looked “artificial, not look very lifelike”. She also had chipped one of the crowns on the far left.
Crowns are placed on teeth when there is too much tooth structure lost to restore the tooth in a less invasive manner, such as with a composite filling or porcelain veneer. This can be due to damage due to injury, a large cavity or other issues. Crowns are also needed when missing teeth are replaced with fixed bridgework.
I placed new porcelain crowns on the patient’s teeth after the old crowns were removed. The procedure required two appointments.
The patient’s teeth now appear very natural. They definitely had the lifelike quality the patient was looking for. She said her new crowns made her very happy.
Why do some doctors not have a star rating or comments?
In order to provide our patients with the most accurate and beneficial information, we only post star ratings and comments for a doctor once they have received a minimum of 30 surveys within the previous 12 months.
