Dental Implants & Crowns can improve a smile...

I've written before about dark gumlines and tooth roots and I see quite a few patients with this problem.  It has also been a popular topic here on this site too so I thought I would post another case.four new all ceramic crowns and one dental implantold failed crowns

Cindy ( not her real name of course) wanted to improve her smile by replacing four crowns on her upper front teeth.  You can see the two on your left have darkness showing through her gums.  The tooth indicated by the red arrow had to be removed.  I replaced this tooth with a dental implant and porcelain crown.  This helped esthetically as the roots of the two center teeth on the left were black from old failed dentistry and replacing one with an implant helped remove some of the darkness, allowing for pinker gums.  Due to the blackness of the root under the gums I couldn't make  much improvement in the tooth on the far left.  See the after image.  With a small bit of trimming we could have perfected the length of her left implant tooth but Cindy was happy with the teeth as you see them and the smile she now has.

( If you want to see what the teeth looked like after I removed the old crowns, just click on the left image.)
