A few years back, Deb had an accident and broke her 4 front teeth. There also was some serious damage to the nerves of the teeth because of the trauma. Before the accident, the teeth were healthy and looked pretty good.
Over the course of a few months, Debbie had to have root canal treatment on all 4 teeth to remove the dying nerves. Once the teeth were stable, they needed long term protection. Because a tooth that has had a root canal treatment no longer has nerves or blood supply, it can become very brittle and more prone to break. A beautiful tooth colored, all ceramic crown is one of the most pleasing restorations we can make. Since it has NO METAL, Debbie does not have to worry about the dreaded 'black lines' showing at the gum line. With proper care and continuing her bi-yearly visits with our office, we will make sure that these teeth will last a life time!
