This patient was unhappy with his old crown on one of his front teeth and the chipping of his other front tooth. The previous crown was made of a traditional technique of fusing porcelain onto a metal shell (called a PFM). This type crown typically shows the metal margin and becomes even more prominent over time as gums normally recede over time, showing the dark lines around the crown even more. Both front teeth were restored with a metal-free, more esthetic, ceramic. This creates a more natural look and even as his gingiva continues to recede in the future, he’ll never have that dark line in his smile again.
