Crowns: Case 1
Melissa was unhappy with the color of her teeth and the black space between them at the gum line. We whitened them which made the old crowns on her 2 front teeth look yellow. We made her 2 new crowns on her front teeth and by adding a contour to the front edge of each, the front teeth looked less flat and more 3 dimensional. Notice also the edges of the 2 front teeth mimic the edges of the teeth next to them. The edges on her original crowns were too straight. What is not realized is that the edges of top teeth have to follow the contour of the lower lip.
