Unattractive Crowns or Caps

With the advancements in dentistry, caps or crowns can be made to look much like natural teeth. An old crown may be functional, but unattractive. That old, unattractive crown can be replaced with beautiful results. Using crowns made without any metal, there will be no dark margins to show against the gumline.

Teeth Before and After Crowns

The patient on the left is showing one overly light crown against darker discolored natural teeth. Although it was possible to match the single crown to the adjacent less unattractive teeth, it was the patient's desire to revamp her smile in its entirety, and nine porcelain veneers were included in the treatment plan to develop an overall tooth shade that was more harmonious with her smile.

Patients who opt for crown and tooth shade matching are treated with the VITA Easyshade Compact which delivers the fastest, easiest way to measure tooth shades. Easyshade Compact provides the ability to measure natural teeth, check restoration shades and track bleaching progress with the push of a button.
