CASE STUDY 19 – RESTORING DARK GUMS AND FAILING POST CROWNS
This case highlights a common and difficult problem with old crowns and dark root-filled teeth.
This is the dark grey discolouration that is seen around the edges of the teeth and the blue-grey discolouration of the gums.
Also in this case the central incisors were excessively wide relative to the other teeth and the gum line high due to recession.
The superb result was achieved with a combination of immediate implants and gum grafting to thicken the soft tissues and also bonding composite on the lateral incisors to broaden them and thereby allowing us to create a more harmonious result with better tooth proportions. We have also corrected the gum recession and created a more pleasing overall aesthetic outcome.
A beautiful result!
