Our clinic was addressed by a female patient who complained of non-aesthetic appearance of teeth. The crowns were short and did not reach the gingiva.

After the computed tomography scan, we eliminated endotreatment complications and, together with the patient, took a decision to replace 17 porcelain fused metal crowns with ceramic crowns.

We took casts of the patient’s crowns and removed old crowns. We prepared and scanned the teeth. The next stage was cementing of previously made temporary crowns and computer modelling of permanent ceramic teeth. The whole crown manufacturing process took 9 hours. After the permanent crowns had been prepared, they were fixed in the oral cavity.

STAGE 1

Preparation

Professional tooth cleaning, removal of hard and soft plaque on the teeth. With local anaesthesia, the teeth were prepared for crown placement.
STAGE 2

Teeth scanning

With the intraoral scanner, we received digital impressions.
STAGE 3

Modelling

A special program modelled future restorations (crowns).
STAGE 4

Crown milling

Digital models of crowns were transmitted to the milling cutter which manufactured the crowns from ceramic blanks in several hours.
