A is a 20 something professional who broke her front tooth in her teenage years. She had a crown put on the tooth but it looked uneven. She wanted to improve her front tooth.
Full ceramic crown (Emax)
Her left front incisor is shorter than her right front incisor
Her smile line is pleasant, the short left front incisor is the only distraction.
We mock up a proposed tooth using composite resin to test out the effect on her smile. Patient was pleased.
Close up of the mock up to mirror her natural front right incisor. We use this mock up as a guide.
Crown lengthening was a small gum surgery to make the tooth longer.
It takes 8 weeks for the gum to stabilize. We refined the temporary crown during this period.
When the gum has healed, we removed the temporary crown to take impression.
The final crown looked natural. Gum has adapted well to the ceramic crown.
The final result is a natural and balanced smileline.
