This patient came to us because she didn't like the look of her front tooth. She said the crown was done the same day in her previous office and it doesn't match her other teeth. We recommended to replace the crown with lab-made porcelain crown and she agreed to give it a shot.
After we removed the existing crown, we found various dark internal stains and we were able to remove them partially. We went through the process of a regular crown and waited for the crown to return from the lab while patient had a temporary crown. When everything was done, patient was very happy with the look of the new crown and we are glad to have made a difference!
Same-Day Crowns can be very effective in our office, but in highly esthetic areas like front teeth, we still use a lab to fabricate the crown most of the time because the lab can make a better matched crown with the right translucency, staining, and glazing.
