Replacement of maxillary lateral incisor metal-ceramic crown with an all-ceramic crown
A 49-year-old female patient was unsatisfied with the high opacity of her right lateral incisor. Furthermore, she was advised that the replacement of the over-contoured crown would improve her periodontal health.
The existing metal-ceramic crown was replaced by an IPS Empress all-ceramic crown. To improve the fit and the general aesthetics of the crown, the tooth was re-prepared to change the feather-edge finish line to a small shoulder finish line. The crown was bonded with a resin cement.
