So You Think You Can Crown? Don’t Be Afraid to Smile Just Because You Have a Crown on Your Front Tooth ! ! !

Three years after delivery, I saw this patient again yesterday for his periodic check-up.  The patient had forgotten which tooth he fractured.  I had to take a second look to refresh my memory on which tooth I had worked on.  This is a crown success story.

When science, art, and, care is coordinated between a dentist and a dental ceramist, nature is replicated in the form of teeth.  To crown a tooth is one thing, but to give my patient back a tooth in the form of a crown is something else.

This photograph is a tribute to anyone who has crowns on his/her front tooth.  It is also my way to say “Thank You !”  to all the talented dental ceramists with whom I have had the opportunity to collaborate in the quest for perfection in our work.  Thanks for supporting me in delivering nothing but the best result for our patients.

Smile on !
