Tonight I cemented a crown for a patient, and I was extremely pleased with the shade. I started a new way of taking shades incorporating chroma, value and hue in different steps, and the result was phenomenal. The lab did amazing work for me. This patient has a range of colors throughout her dentition, and replacing a single front tooth with a crown is extremely difficult. Here are the before and afters. To zero you in on the tooth that was crowned, it’s the one to the right of the front two teeth.
