Restoring smile by esthetic intraradiular tooth reinforcement and metal free crown: a case report

Sheen J. Arora, Aman Arora, Ritu Sangwan, Prachi Jain


Aesthetic management of maxillary anteriors provide a challenge to the artistic and technical abilities of a prosthodontist. Metal-free crowns in such cases allows for highly aesthetic solutions to reshape fractured teeth or teeth with other defects. In severely compromised anterior teeth, development of non-metallic post systems has made possible the generation of metal-free ceramic restorations. This article describes a case where all-ceramic crown reinforced with post was utilized to improve the esthetics of the patient.
