Clinical Notes on Waterlase

The patient wanted to replace her splinted PFMs with full ceramic crowns. The goals:

  1. Centrals with better dimensions
  2. High-Low-High gingival profiles

After crown removal, we have two discolored abutments with metal cores. Fortunately, her original crowns were slightly in retroclination, so we have some buccal space to work with on color masking.

After waterlase and abutment masking with opaque resin.

Delivery with Triluxe Forte. Total chair time was approximately 2 hours.

9-Day follow up. The gingiva margins have become slightly asymmetrical due to the different contours on the crowns.
