Before and after photos on porcelain dental crowns and porcelain caps performed in our NYC Smile Makeover office.
Extreme Smile Makeover. 1) & 2) Before Photos. 3) & 4) After Photos. A combination of 20 all-porcelain teeth crowns, porcelain veneers and a lower front teeth bridge were used to treat natural tooth discoloration (and yellow old crowns) and a severe bilateral, posterior cross-bite. The cross bite means the upper back teeth closed down inside the lower back teeth. Total treatment time was about four weeks.
An anterior porcelain dental crown had come out. It is better to rebond this with resin cement than to just use traditional cement.
Upper anterior tooth preparation for an all porcelain crown (#7). How to pictures. 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.
All porcelain crown preparation for upper centrals incisor teeth – how to shown on a master model.
The width of the shoulder should be around 2 mm. Over preparation will weaken the tooth; under preparation will weaken the dental porcelain. The impression should extend into the gingival sulcus to give the dental lab technician a clean finish line.
