With time, the gum has receded around this crowned tooth exposing the dark root. This client hated the dark margin around his old crown and wanted to do something about it.
Contemporary aesthetic crowns solve this problem, in just 2 visits. In this case, we replaced the old crown with an e.max crown, carefully hiding the margins of the crown just under the gums, so it looks natural. Modern crowns like e.max do not have metal inside, so they also reflect light similar to a natural tooth.
