Case Study 2
The patient in the pictures had severe damage to his front teeth, including wear, fractures, and existing fillings. To restore the teeth and improve their appearance, full coverage crowns were recommended. The old filling material was removed, and the teeth were reshaped to prepare for the crowns. A small string was used to ensure a perfect impression before taking it. Provisional crowns were made on the same day for the patient to see and approve the desired outcome. Finally, the permanent crowns were placed one week later, and the patient achieved a natural-looking smile. The gums between the front two teeth will continue to heal over the next few months. The patient was happy with the final result.
