The role of dental crowns is to restore the natural shape and the normal functional condition, of a damaged tooth.
This type of dental restauration is used in the following cases:
there is considerable cavity damage at the tooth and there isn’t sufficient healthy structure for fillings or inlays – in general, any tooth that retains less than 50% of the natural material requires crown inlay;
the tooth is fractured and cannot be restored by conventional techniques, using composite materials for considerable cavity damage, the patient may choose crown restoration for additional protection;
endodontic root canal treatment is often completed with the installation of a dental crown, to protect the vulnerable tooth – particularly the molars;
bruxism, improper food intake and dental erosion may lead to such considerable deterioration that the crown is the only restorative option;
the dental crown must meet a series of requirements, such as fulfil all the functions of the natural tooth it covers and look like it, allow dental flossing, not to retain food, not to be uncomfortable and not to modify the occlusion.
The patient, aged 28, wanted to have a perfect hollywood smile. I opted for an E-Max crown denture.
The case was extremely difficult because of the edging of the upper lateral incisors, but also of the tremors (the turret) in the frontal area. Finally, we obtained the patient's much-wanted result.

3 February 2016 • Metal-ceramic work (design) →
The 27-year-old patient showed up in the office for aesthetic reasons. The case was a real challenge as the patient had a missing tooth in the upper frontal area. The patient wanted a perfect smile and opted for a fixed ceramic work on zirconium in the frontal area and metal-ceramic crowns in the lateral areas. The case was not an easy one because the space in the frontal area was limited - for a correct job both functional and aesthetically, a very careful preparation of the prosthetic collars and a perfect fingerprint was needed.

The 24-year-old patient presented for aesthetic, functional and, above all, social reasons. The case has encountered difficulties due to malocclusion (improper closure of the mouth) of the patient. After the face arc recording, together with the technician, I found the solution of a correct occlusion. Following prosthetic treatment (metal-ceramic crowns) we obtained the desired result of the patient.

The 81-year-old patient was presented with a functional and aesthetic problems in the lower jaw. After conducting canal treatments and teeth grinding, we opted for a fixed prosthesis (metal-ceramic work).
10 February 2015 • Fixed prosthesis with metal-ceramic work →
The 37-year-old patient presented with a work done in Spain (upper skeletal prosthesis) and accused functional and aesthetic problems. Analyzing the case and taking into account the patient's desire to get rid of the mobile work, we have succeeded in a fixed metal-ceramic work, which gave the patient a better mastication, the desired appearance and, implicitly, a greater self-confidence.

28-year old patient consultation for aesthetic reasons, complaining about bad smell and bleeding gums. I chose to remove the old work, redo the canal treatment and the prosthetic abutments. The gum suffered from chronic irritation, but owing to the correct adjustment of the new ceramic work, the gum regained its natural aspect. Since this is an important aesthetic area, I chose a metal-ceramic material (Ivoclar D'sign).
