Front Crowns a Joyful Result

Adding life to a smile is something I love to do. After 34 years there is still more to learn and great joy to be had from practicing dentistry. Here is an example of four front teeth with crowns that had lack luster porcelain, and veneers on the lateral incisors that have receded margins. By using all porcelain with no metal we are able to bring a vitality to restorations that make them look real.

Here is the original appearance,with the veneers showing and a yellowy hue to the crowns.

And here are the new zirconium crowns.

From the side you can really see the vitality in the way the light refracts through the porcelain.
