Single Crown (All Porcelain)

Female patient presented to our office with broken tooth in her hand. The patient informed us that the broken tooth had a root canal and a crown many years ago. Several options were discussed including implants, but patient did not want any surgery. A treatment option of a new porcelain crown with some orthodontics was chosen. First the tooth needed to be slightly pulled out of the gums to make it longer for the crown. Once this was accomplished a porcelain crown was fabricated that best matched the surrounding restorations.
