Patient cases

A 72-year-old female patient was affected by the poor fit of her existing mandibular complete denture, especially the constant movement while chewing. The final treatment included a new maxillary complete denture and a mandibular implant fixed complete denture.

Patient cases

A 56-year-old female patient was bothered by the darker shade of her right central incisor crown in comparison to the adjacent teeth. To fulfill the patient's need, a single-hand veneered zirconia crown was chosen as a treatment.

Patient cases

A 22-year-old football player suffered from a traumatic injury which led to an avulsion of his maxillary left central incisor. The treatment selected was the placement of a single crown on tooth #11 FDI (#8 US) and a single implant to replace tooth #21 FDI (#9 US).

Patient cases

A 60-year-old male patient's chief complaint was that his bridges were loose. The treatment option was a 3-unit implant fixed partial denture and 3 single crowns on tooth abutments in the maxilla, and a conventional 6-unit fixed partial denture in the anterior mandible was chosen.

Patient cases

A 23-year-old female patient presented herself with a traumatically injured maxillary central incisor. The tooth had been bonded multiple times unsuccessfully with resin. An all-ceramic E-max crown was selected as the treatment option.

Patient cases

A 57-year-old female patient presented herself with a missing maxillary left central incisor and wanted a fixed replacement. A single implant and crown were used to replace the missing tooth with gingival-colored cervical porcelain to provide a more esthetic result.

Patient cases

A 20-year-old female patient presented with a lingually positioned and submerged primary lateral incisor with limited buccolingual bone thickness. A single implant with a metal-ceramic crown was chosen as the treatment of choice.

Patient cases

A 47-year-old female patient referred by her periodontist who was not satisfied with her gingival health. Metal-ceramic crowns with ceramic margins on the natural teeth along with placement of a custom abutment and cementation of a metal-ceramic crown on the implant were chosen.

Patient cases

A 49-year-old female patient was unsatisfied with the high opacity of her right lateral incisor. The existing metal-ceramic crown was replaced by an IPS Empress all-ceramic crown. The crown was bonded with a resin cement.

Patient cases

A 39-year-old female patient presented with the extensive incisal wear of the maxillary incisors due to an occlusal habit that exposed large areas of dentin created some sensitivity and produced short teeth that the patient did not like.

Patient cases

A 91-year-old female patient was unable to wear her existing dentures. There was no residual ridge in the maxilla, only soft tissue. In the mandible, there was extensive resorption with the inferior alveolar canal close to/on the residual ridge.

Patient cases

A 68-year-old female patient with an initial crown preparation that was extended to the bone level. The tooth was extracted and an implant placed. The mucosal recession was experienced due to bone loss associated with cracked root.

Patient cases

A 73-year-old female patient presented with extensive bone loss around the posterior tooth abutment, requiring extraction. Two crowns were used to replace the missing teeth and they were splinted to control the leverage due to the distal location of the implant in the molar crown.
