Gold onlays on first molars, Empress inlay/onlay on all 4 bicuspids.
Brad, is the first premolar cracked on the mesial ridge ?
Very nice documentation, can I see the preparation photos ? - Thomas
Brad: Nicely done, but Iíve gotta ask. Why would you place full gold
crowns on molars on a case where you place a ceramic onlay and placed
aesthetic materials elsewhere. Seems to me the aesthetically oriented
patient would have balked at that - gary
Thanks Gary. Her choice. She wanted gold for durability on the molars.
No way they would show, even if she tried. But, wanted "tooth colored"
on the bicuspids and I couldn't see buzzing them all down for full
If they want porcelain, I don't get into the whole onlay vs crown thing.
That's what dentists are for and sometimes it changes at prep time - Brad
