Broken Tooth #7

Case ID: 0593

Close-Up:

When tooth #7 broke at the gum line on a Saturday night, this patient was mortified. The tooth had a 25 year old root canal treatment, as well as a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown that the patient hated due to metal showing at the gum line.

Dr. Flax created a temporary tooth replacement to address the immediate appearance concern. The root was then extracted, and the implant was surgically placed. The implant crown was placed and the new crown was whitened to blend in perfectly with the surrounding teeth.
