Defective metal based crowns
This case highlights what can happen when crowns are not maintained. Along with meticulous oral hygiene, it is pivotally important to maintain regular dental visits. Regular care gives your dentist a chance to monitor dental work completed in the past. At our state-of-the-art facility, we take the time to carry out comprehensive dental assessments.
Here see crowns made from porcelain fused to metal (PFM). They had been in place for more than 15 years, but the patient had neglected to seek regular dental care. When he finally found his dental home with Dr. Paresh B. Patel, we recommended that his crowns be replaced with all-ceramic crowns. Dental services have advanced tremendously in the last decade; we now have natural-looking crowns available that negate the need to use metal as a base. What’s more, ceramic crowns reflect and transmit light in a more similar fashion to natural teeth.
The picture of this gentleman’s teeth after the seating of all his ceramic crowns shows the results that can be achieved with this great service. Dr. Patel welcomes you to come and visit his facility, Family Dentistry of Frisco, where you smile is our passion.
