Porcelain Crown Covers a Discolored Tooth
This patient received trauma to her mouth when she was younger and her front tooth required root canal treatment. When a tooth has had a root canal, there is no nerve inside to keep the tooth moist, so it will act like a sponge absorbing liquids along with any stains thus turning the tooth dark. We placed a post inside the tooth to help retain the new crown. Then, we constructed a beautiful all-porcelain crown. A central incisor, also known as a front tooth, is the most difficult tooth to match. Notice the custom staining that we did to get an absolutely perfect match.
