Click on the small photos below to enlarge.
A Ceramic Onlay placed on an upper left molar tooth. This onlay is bonded (or glued) onto the tooth using a technique that is much stronger than standard dental cement.
Porcelain dental crown - cap - placement on an upper peg-shaped lateral incisor tooth #10. Root canal therapy was also performed. Before and after pictures are shown.
A comparison in pictures: 1) Porcelain fused to metal dental crown. 2) All porcelain dental crown. 3) Porcelain veneer laminate. Compare the difference in these photos. The words, crown and cap, mean the same thing; a dental crown and tooth crown also mean the same thing. A fixed dental bridge, prosthesis or bridgework, typically means more than one crown - and that they are connected together as one piece. The word fixed typically means permanently cemented and not removable by the patient. Some patients incorrectly refer to their removable denture as a bridge.
Aesthetic oral reconstruction with dental porcelain, teeth bonding, whitening, gum & root canal therapy, and teeth braces. Treatment time (except braces): 2 months. Braces treatment time: 7 months
Dental Crown design for a hemisected mandibular molar tooth. Photo 1) Tooth #30 was hemisected. Photo 2) The crown is seen from below to show a metal furcation and that it looks like two separate premolar dental crowns.
Kaitlyn loop vs. lingual button. The Kaitlyn Loop can be cast with both teeth post and cores, as seen here in these photos, and dental crowns. About 12 inches of dental floss is inserted through the Kaitlyn Loop with both ends remaining extra-oral during try-in and cementation. This will help prevent accidental swallowing of a cast post and core or crown if it is dropped in the back of the mouth.
