Worn Dentition 

This gentleman had very worn natural teeth in the lower jaw and a much worn upper denture. He wished to improve the appearance. After careful planning and correction of the bite (occlusion), the patient was restored with a new upper denture and eleven individual crowns. He was delighted with his new smile.

Porcelain Bonded crowns (posterior)

When back teeth break, provided there is sufficient natural tooth remaining, they can be restored with a porcelain crown. This crown has an underlying metal substructure making it very durable.

Porcelain Bonded crowns (anterior)

 

Gold crowns

These crowns have the added benefit of being highly durable in thin sections. This means more natural tooth can be preserved and in doing so promotes longevity. Whilst these crowns can be more visually obvious, careful preparation and reservation for the rear molars means they are still an invaluable treatment option.
