This lovely lady came to see Dr. George Angelidakis being very unhappy with her two front teeth. Both teeth had very old crowns on them, which appeared very unnatural, thick and lifeless. Also, the two central teeth appeared significantly longer. Some of the lady's other teeth also had some heavy staining on them, which she has unsuccessfully tried whitening before.
This patient did want a significant change but was after a very natural, non-obvious result.
The amazing, natural looking result was achieved by replacing the old, opaque and thick looking crowns on lady's front teeth with new and thin but strong porcelain reinforced crowns, also known as EMAX crowns. EMAX crowns are specially made from extremely strong porcelain, which allows them to be made significantly thinner and thus have the high level of translucency identical to natural, healthy teeth. Veneers have been placed on the remaining teeth to even out the smile line and avoid some teeth looking shorter or longer than others. A blend of different shades was cleverly used to avoid the teeth looking too uniform, which has completely covered the discoloration yet made the appearance very lifelike.
The patient was absolutely thrilled with the result.
