Empress Crowns

December 9, 2009

This patient was a pleasure to treat.  As you can see there was some crowding issues with the front 2 teeth and all the teeth were quite dark.  We bleached the teeth using at home tray whitening for a couple of weeks, and match full porcelain Empress crowns cemented onto the front 2 teeth.  The full porcelain allows the light through them just like natural teeth so the result is very aesthetic.  Traditional porcelain fused to metal crowns (PFM’s) tend to result in a more opaque ‘non-vital’ appearance.
